The Models

@noemiazab and @lottiebauer joined The Florentine as “models for a day” following our call to action on Instagram. We thank Noemi and Lottie for taking part and to everyone who got in touch. 

The Location

All the photos were shot at 25hours Hotel Piazza San Paolino (piazza di S. Paolino, 1). The boudoirs and lounges of 25hours Hotel Piazza San Paolino inspired this heaven and hell shoot due to the Dante theme throughout the creative new hub in the Santa Maria Novella neighbourhood. All-day dining, cocktail, events spaces and overnight accommodation complete the offer at 25hours.
