Radisson has announced the opening of Radisson Collection Hotel, Palazzo Touring Club Milan. This is the first property of the Group’s Radisson Collection brand in Milan.
Set in an iconic building at the heart of Italy’s fashion, design and business capital close to the Duomo, Radisson Collection Hotel, Palazzo Touring Club Milan is now open after an extensive renovation by Studio Marco Piva, while still preserving the building’s historical significance and its unique identity.
The property was the headquarters of Touring Club Italiano, a non-profit association founded in 1894 with the aim of promoting Italy to make it more attractive, competitive and welcoming, and which has become the most important Italian Tourist Association. The building, which was built between 1914 and 1915, has been extensively renovated and transformed into a 5-star hotel with the redevelopment project led by architectural firm Studio Marco Piva. The Studio developed both the architectural and interior design, with the aim of preserving and enhancing the historical and cultural heritage of the building, partly maintaining its original functions but giving them new life. The renovation and transformation works have been carried out by Di Vincenzo Dino & C. Spa. Also, The Club’s extraordinary historical library and its travel agency, a reference point for the citizens of Milan when it comes to tourism, has been renovated and maintained.
Radisson Collection Hotel, Palazzo Touring Club Milan is at the heart of the city’s historical center, just a 10-minute walk from world-famous landmarks such as the Duomo, La Scala Theater and the Quadrilatero della Moda – the fashion district – home to the world’s best fashion brands and numerous boutiques.
Chema Basterrechea, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer, Radisson Hotel Group, said:
I’m extremely happy to announce the opening of our flagship property in Milan in a building that is such an icon for the travel industry. Radisson Hotel Group’s expansion in Italy continues with great confidence. The announcement of Radisson Collection Hotel, Palazzo Touring Club Milan in the heart of this dynamic city is a very positive signal for the tourism industry in Italy.
