In commemoration of the past and of the distinction of the noble Manfredi family, you can still read today two Latin inscriptions on the turret, “Fortuna duce”, with fortune as guide, and “Virtute Comite”, with virtue as companion, quoting Cicerone’s famous maxim.
Born in 1918, Count Goffredo Manfredi is one of Rome’s most visible public figures, renowned for his entrepreneurial ventures, elegant residences and refined hospitality.
At his side, his wife Countess Enrica is descended from the old Russian imperial family, and the English Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. Together for 58 years, this extraordinary couple have written one of the most cultured chapters in Roman high society.
The Palazzo Manfredi is one of the Count’s latest ventures, embodying more than any other, the opulence and sophistication of his lifestyle. The palazzo itself houses the most beautiful view of the Colosseum, views of which may be admired from almost every area of the property, with the best views coming from their crowning jewel; Michelin-starred Aroma Restaurant, over a morning coffee or a decadent Italian meal.
