Palazzo Bozzi Corso

A welness retreat

The luxurious and charming Palazzo Bozzi Corso is situated just a stone’s throw from the Basilica di Santa Croce. Erected in 1775, it is today dedicated to the memory of Enzo Fiermonte, world-famous boxing champion and great-uncle to the current owners Antonia and Giacomo Filali. This historical palazzo, positioned in the very centre of the old city, features ten elegant suites.

Within its walls one can breathe the art that accompanies the history of the Fiermonte Family. Every suite tells a story, beginning with that of the two artists Zwobada and Leturneur whose works of art can be admired in every hall, through to Fernand Léger and even John Lennon and Yoko Ono (the latter a personal friend of the owners’ mother). The interiors exude a totally unique style, a perfect marriage of classical and contemporary design, with bespoke furniture alongside notable pieces by Sottsass, Gio Ponti, Mackintosh and Le Corbusier.

The Palazzo boasts an elegant rooftop terrace with plunge pool and an extraordinary view over the city of Lecce, with its many bell towers, picturesque buildings and unforgettable sunsets. An indoor wellness area is also available, featuring a natural stone hydromassage pool, a relaxarium and a massage room where to indulge in personalised treatments and wellness activities.

The property also comes with a beautiful private garden where guests can enjoy breakfast in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening.
