The Moschino Hotel in Milan
Wednesday 7, April 2010
October 2008 Moschino presents the concept for MAISON MOSCHINO, the hotel which is expected to open in this month.The hotel will be located in the old neoclassical railway station on Viale Monte Grappa, 12, that opened in 1840 for the Milan-Monza route.
The hotel's creative direction is led by Rossella Jardini and Moschino's creative team. The exterior facades were restructured to be faithful to the original structure, while the interior was completely interpreted in the Moschino style. Divided into four floors, the 54 rooms and 15 suites are all different. On the ground floor, the hall and the bar welcome guests into the hotel.
The restaurant extends from the hall to the garden, and the spa and the gym are located on the lower levels. The common thread connecting the rooms is a fairy tale theme because to sleep is perchance to dream, and dreams are fairy tales that we are allowed to experience first hand, the fables of a fantasy world that we have created. This is an alternate life in which we direct and stage the scripts of our very own play. The hotel interior reflects Moschino's distinctive style where the ordinary world is painted with a brush of surrealism.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
