As written on our official website Hotel Loggiato dei Serviti is in front of the worldwide famous Spedale degli Innocenti in Florence, in fact our hotel is part of the same architecture which encloses the wonderful Santissima Annunziata Square.
In this short article we at Hotel Loggiato dei Serviti would like to tell our dear guests that the Spedale degli Innocenti is not only the first Renaissance architectural structure, originally designed by Filippo Brunelleschi, but was also conceived as the first foundling hospital in history, specifically dedicated to abandoned newborn.
Still nowadays the Spedale hosts two nurseries, a pre-school, three "family-homes" for disadvantaged children and mothers and Unicef offices.
We would like to tell that the Spedale has a Museum open to public, which contains prominent Renaissance works by artists such as Luca della Robbia, Sandro Botticelli, Domenico Ghirlandaio, to name a few.
