La Fiermontina & Palazzo Bozzi Corso

Lecce, Italy

La Fiermontina was conceived in 2015 by Giacomo Filali as a tribute to his grandmother, Antonia Fiermonte, her two artist husbands, and the region in which she was born and grew up. 

Their family story is fascinating. The owners love to share it over an aperitivo with guests during their stay as a means of uncovering history, culture, and unique memories. 

La Fiermontina and the Palazzo Bozzi Corso are in Lecce in the Puglia region of Italy. Often deemed ‘the Florence of the South’, Lecce is known for its ornate Baroque architecture, beauty, and history.  

La Fiermontina is a hotel of 19 unique rooms and suites built around a rare 17th century private home in the heart of Old Lecce.  

The Palazzo Bozzi Corso, built in 1775, is located just a few steps from La Fiermontina. A palatial ‘home’ like no other, where each of the 10 suites is an individual masterpiece, exuding the colorful personalities of those they were inspired by. This hotel of distinction balances classic elegance with contemporary design in a truly intimate and inclusive setting.
