Hotel de la Ville - Rome


The journeys of noble English offsprings to discover the fashion design of Paris and Italian archaeological treasures inspires the design of the Hotel de la Ville in Rome, another pearl of the Rocco Forte Hotels group. For this project, in a building only circa 100 meters from Trinità dei Monti, the Ziffer studio, designate by the Director of Design, Olga Polizzi, made use of the mastery of Bronzetto. Hotel de la Ville is another add to the contract projects of luxury hotels of Il Bronzetto. Giant bronze chandeliers have been created for the common areas of the hotel, such as the huge hall chandelier which, due to its dark colors and concentric circles, recalls the atmosphere of medieval castles.


The chandelier designed by the architect Ziffer in the arabesque style of the yellow living room, is in gilded bronze with candles resting on 10-pointed stars and blue enamel decorations. The bronze castings, the golden and burnished finishes, are found also in the wall lamps, table lamps and ornamental inserts of the shelves. On the walls perfectly reproduced damasks and wallpapers, by magic of digital technology, from original antique prints and lithographs, can be found.


The three chandeliers of the Mosaico restaurant have a mirrored parabola on their inside to reflect the light and black of the motif of the central crown. Each room of the Hotel de la Ville is a world of its own, each piece of furniture finds its perfect location.
