Hotel Description: The Convitto della Calza building, raised in the 14th century as the Hospital of San Giovanni Battista, owes its name to the congregation of Gesuati friars that occupied it beginning in 1529. The friars wore a strip of cloth on their left shoulder; its resemblance to a stocking (calza) gave the building its present name. Since its foundation, the various religious orders that have lived here have embellished the building with works of art of great beauty: the 15th century cloister, the fresco of the Last Supper by Franciabigio (1514) and the Cardinal Mistrangelo chapel. Following 50 years of inactivity, the Convitto was reopened thanks to the efforts of Cardinal Silvano Piovanelli; the auditorium facilities were completed later, on occasion of the Jubilee 2000 celebrations. The Convitto della Calza offers its guests a warm and cordial venue for their business and pleasure trips to Florence. The art and history enclosed in its halls, the charm of the rooms, and the excellent service create an engagingly harmonious atmosphere.
