The Salerno Collection
Home to the first medical institute in the world, Salerno, Italy boasts a particularly storied history as an educational mecca. Inhabited during the Middle Ages by imperial Spanish rulers, the city had many of the finest scholars of the day employed to teach at aristocratic schools and learning centers. The designs of the city inevitably show a combination of both Italian and Spanish architecture because of this wealthy Spanish influence on an otherwise Italian city. Often embellished and ornate, the look is peculiar only to Salerno. For a fixture style that speaks more to income, education, and fine art rather than singular Italian or Spanish styles, the Salerno collection by Urban Ambiance pulls out on these special attributes.
