The 1911 Florentine Apartment building, designed by Italian immigrant Vincent P. Chiodo, is a very unique and personal interpretation of the Second Renaissance Revival style of architecture. Chiodo arrived in America from Calabria 1885 and first worked as a tailor. Following a short return visit to Italy, Chiodo entered the Philip School of Design in Chicago and later returned to Omaha. After the turn-of-the-century he branched into real estate and was widely known as a builder of apartment houses. In 1929 Chiodo was Omaha‚Äôs only Italian millionaire. Chiodo, who built many structures in the neighborhood around the Florentine, was a very prominent man in his community. Each year members of a local parade group would stop and salute Chiodo as he watched from the porch of his home.
