Palazzo Cini stands tall just a few steps from Corso Italia, among the most renowned architectural works of Pisa. It is an Art Nouveau building from the end of the 19th century, renovated in 2017 and inaugurated last spring with the most important city authorities present.
“It is a boutique hotel, where I have personally taken care of every detail from refined materials to sophisticated design, welcoming our clientele in a unique space,” says the young owner, architect Ivan Cini.

After international experience in architectural firms in Berlin and Milan, he has returned to the heart of his native Tuscany, creating Palazzo Cini at Via Manzoni number 12. It is a rare gem in one of the most renowned Italian art cities, family run together with his sister Daniela and Imen, who have the common immeasurable passion for all things beautiful and well made, and also an endless amount of energy. “This building was the home of a doctor. Our family bought it with the intention of turning it into a luxury style B&B. I initially thought I would get my bearings out in the Pisan countryside, in an area where my family is from – Lari.
