It seems fitting to begin the tour in the Italian galleries, reached through the classical courtyard and up the stairs to rooms off the loggia .
Beyond is a glass-roofed loggia , which connects the cafeteria to an outdoor terrace and the main oval.
The rear of the house opens to the garden through a long loggia .
The architects carved a loggia into the base of all four buildings to provide a continuous pedestrian space around the courtyard as well as covered access to each building.
Nora and Amanda made their way to the loggia , a large patio at ground level on the seaside of the house.
The decision was made, at a date most commonly assumed to have been in 1517, to close the open loggia at the southern corner of the building, which had hitherto given Florentine citizens a convenient point of access to the palace.
Accented with beautiful gardens, a covered loggia and a fireplace creating a picturesque setting for parties and other social happenings, The Paseo Club strives to be at the center of its members' social lives.
On the south side, a first floor loggia with Ionic columns overlooked the garden; on the north, a horseshoe staircase leads in Palladian manner to a terrace and a two-storey cubic hall.
Extending out from the pavilion is a large loggia , which in time will be colonized by deciduous local vines, forming a green gateway.
The loggia around the courtyard on this floor contains the museum's excellent collection of maiolica pottery and glazed terra-cotta sculptures made in Italy during the Renaissance.
