Overview

The name of the room is in honour of the eclectic Siennese poet Cecco Angiolieri (1260-1312), member of the notable family of the “Angiolieri”. He was known for his adventurous life. He was born in one of the richest family of Siena (the father, Angioliero degli Angiolieri was a rich banker) and died with a lot of debts. In one of his famous sonetto’s he remembers the three things that he loved: women, food and gambling “Tre cose solamente mi so’ in grado, le quali posso non ben men fornire, ciò è la donna, la taverna e ‘l dado; queste mi fanno ‘l cuor lieto sentire” [literally: “To me only three things are of interest, which moreover I can not well provide myself: that is to say a woman, a tavern, and a dice game; these make my heart feel happy”]. In another one he shows his love for young ladies: “S’i’ fosse Cecco, com’i’ sono e fui, torrei le donne giovani e leggiadre: le vecchie e laide lasserei altrui” [literally: “If I were Cecco - as in fact I am - I'd chase the young and pretty girls; to others would I leave the lame or wrinkled dam”].

The room is a double bedroom, perfect for couples. It is possible to have a different set with two single beds. From the windows, you can admire the Basilica of San Domenico. This Basilica was initiated in 13th century and was then enlarged in the 14th century resulting in the Gothic appearance it has now. However, aspects of the Gothic structure were subsequently destroyed by fires during the 15th century and further damage later resulted from military occupation. In honour of the eclectic character of Cecco Angiolieri the room has a quirky touch given by a very spacious and modern in-room shower facing the bed and from where you can admire the Basilica of San Domenico. The furnishing of this bedroom is modern and on the wall there are two ancient paintings depicting old battles. The room comes complete with a private bathroom paved with modern grey tiles from the well-known Mutina brand and a toilet. The shower is in the room in front of the bed nicely projected in sandstone and crystal.

The window of the room overlooks the Basilica of San Domenico.
