Venice is the second-most visited Italian city after Rome with the highest number of international tourists thanks to its world-famous artistic heritage, unique urban architecture and its UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Venice also hosts art and architecture biennales, the internationally renowned film festival and other cultural exhibitions throughout the year. Set in an exceptional Venetian jewel of architecture by the Cannaregio canal, Radisson Collection Hotel, Palazzo Nani Venice opens its doors in the historic heart of the city.
The historic Palazzo Nani, a 16th century noble building overlooking the Cannaregio Canal in Venice, has become a Radisson Collection 5-star hotel signed by Studio Marco Piva.
Radisson Collection Hotel, Palazzo Nani Venice, is the fourth Italian structure of the Radisson Collection Hotel brand, for which Studio Marco Piva also designed the Palazzo Touring Club in Milan, inaugurated last August.
Palazzo Nani Venice, previously house of the aristocratic Nani family, then a school, reopened its doors to the city, after the major renovation work curated by Studio Marco Piva, carried out under the supervision, and in agreement, with the Superintendence of Fine Arts and Landscape for the Municipality of Venice, as the property is subject to the protection regime for its historical value.
The new Hotel Palazzo Nani is combining the artistic heritage with a profound aesthetic research in which the best design integrates with the emotional and social value of the work, increasing its prestige even more. A change of intended use that keep intact the historical and artistic value of the Palace, preserving and emphasizing the original structures and floors, as well as all the frescoes, magnified with the use of light.
The new luxurious hotel is situated close to the Venetian Ghetto in the northern part of the city. The hotel’s 52 beautifully designed rooms, offering views of the Cannaregio Canal, city streets or the quiet courtyard, create a sense of serenity through a refined color palette and soft fabrics. The interior decoration preserves the stuccos and frescoes attributed to the Italian sculptor Alessandro Vittoria, who also remodeled the palazzo in the 1680s.
The emotional element of the project is the lifeblood of the place: everything has been studied and designed with the intention of finding a reference to the city of Venice. The work of Studio Marco Piva was therefore based on the dialogue between the existing on the one hand, and with the history of the place on the other, in a combination of past and future.
“With the Palazzo Nani project we aimed to create a “special place” in Venice that offers the best of hospitality in an attractive and osmotic context. A new concept of luxury that harmoniously combines history, art and design to offer guests and visitors the most refined welcoming, in continuity with the best Venetian tradition. Palazzo Nani, thanks to the meticulous restoration of its monumental parts, its friezes and its stunning frescoes, has been brought back to life and will continue to pass on its intrinsic beauty also through a non-invasive but elegant and light interior design. A design that is careful about formal and material choices, colours and textures that aims to configure a new sophisticated setting, a contribution to the magnificence of the city”.
The hotel’s facilities include a private meeting room and space which can host up to 80 people, and the Zoja Wine Bar & Terrace, named after the noble family that also once resided in the Palazzo, which offers traditional Venetian food, wine and cocktails in a cosmopolitan atmosphere. The serene garden on the north side of the hotel overlooks the Cannaregio Canal, creating a visual garden-water connection.
