Villa La Quiete

Villa La Quiete

La Quiete villa named after the fresco called “La Quiete che domina i venti” painted by Giovanni from San Giovanni in 1632. Already owned by the Orlandini family, villa La Quiete belonged to Niccolò da Tolentino from 1438, which was donated to him by the Republic; in 1593, it was bought by Pier Francesco dei Medici and later it was given to Cosimo I, who gave it to the commanders of the Order of Santo Stefano. As it was bought by Christine de Lorraine in 1627, the season of greatest splendor started for the villa; when she died in 1636, grand duke Ferdinand II became her heir and granted it to Eleonora Ramirez de Montalvo. The noblewoman lived in the villa from 1650 and intended it as a country retreat for the congregation of nuns that she founded, the Montalve. In 1659, Vittoria della Rovere, a friend of Eleonora’s, took the institute under her protection and promoted the building up of the church in 1688. In 1724, Anna Maria Luisa dei Medici, the last descendant of the family, moved her residence right to La Quiete.
