Art in the Hotel
The Modernist climate, particularly Art Nouveau, is seen throughout the hotel. The sober and functional spaces of the building, the formal reference to classic ideas, are side by side with decorative finishes and volumes of clearly renaissance inspiration.
The grand hall is characterized by discrete tones of beige, gray and white on the ceilings and friezes, and ornamented with alabaster columns, gilt stuccoes and braids, cupids and coats of arms. A staircase with a wrought iron railing from the late nineteenth Century leads to the upper floors, customized by pairs of slender columns surmounted by Corinthian capitals. The original brass chandeliers, of elegant deco style, make the atmosphere warm and enveloping.
The antique vault of the bank has been transformed into an unusual Cigar Bar: ten armored cabinets and the ceiling screened by sheets of steel hold an ample selection of bottles of the most prestigious labels, for the pleasure of the guests.
