Count Goffredo Manfredi
Born in 1918, Count Goffredo Manfredi is one of Rome’s most visible public figures, renowned for his entrepreneurial ventures, elegant residences and refined hospitality.
At his side, his wife Countess Enrica is descended from the old Russian imperial family, and the English Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. Together for 58 years, this extraordinary couple have written one of the most cultured chapters in Roman high society.
Count Manfredi founded his first construction company in 1936, when he was just 18 years old. He took part in the Resistance during World War II, for which he was decorated with the Silver Medal of Military Valour. In the 1950s, the Count played a major role in rebuilding the Italian economy.
Palazzo Manfredi, an exclusive luxury hotel, is one of the Count’s latest ventures, embodying more than any other the opulence and sophistication of his lifestyle.
