Villa Corsini a Mezzomonte just outside Florence, Italy is one of the last Medici residences that is still privately owned. The villa was decorated and frescoed between 1630-1634 on request of Prince Giovan Carlo de Medici and was bought by Lorenzo the Magnificent in 1480. Nestled in the vineyards and olive groves of the Florentine Hills, the Corsini family came into possession of the Villa in 1644 and have owned it ever since.

Timeless views of the Chianti countryside and stunning gardens and limonaia made this an epic location for one of our editorial shoots whilst the Aneka Manners family was in Florence for the two-week installation held in October 2018. These images taken by Lilli Waters and Marie Fitzgerald showcase the beauty of the Villa at magic hour when we were shooting.
