DESIGN The Argentario Resort Golf & Spa presents a contemporary style that is quite unique in rustic Tuscany. Augusto Orsini, owner of the property, always wanted to create something “new and fresh, that would show the region’s most progressive side”. The result is 73-room dragonfly-shaped structure that features a flaxen limestone façade and a stunning reception area, where a spiral staircase winds upwards into a glass dome. Andrea Fogli is the interior designer that took care of the beautiful concepts and details of the resort.
