The house was completely restored at the end of 2009; furnished and cared for by Tiziana Grifoni, landscape architect and interior designer. Tiziana Grofini lives on the hills of Florence, not far from Fiesole, but has an artist studio in Florence where she spends her time connecting architectural themes; she is the author of numerous garden creation projects and has edited a few master plans for the restoration of important gardens and historic parks.

In addition, she is the author of many different volumes and articles on historical and contemporary green architecture, and at times she even works as an Interior Designer. She has dedicated time, attention, and patience to Il Palagetto Guest House and to the gathering of furnishings from the past that are full of charm and character by regularly visiting antique shops and Italian and European markets.
