After undergoing six months of painstaking renovation, the prestigious Hotel Savoy, built in 1893, has officially reopened. Rocco Forte Hotels celebrated the “renaissance” of Hotel Savoy with the unveiling of its beautifully refurbished Florentine hotel, found in the heart of the city.
The project is proud of its collaboration with the world renowned Florentine fashion house, Emilio Pucci, which brings the very essence of Italian design into the hotel. The collaboration starts with Emilio Pucci producing an exclusive scarf for Hotel Savoy.
The architectural décor of the historical Piazza della Repubblica, which the hotel overlooks, is redesigned in a typical Pucci way and features an appearance of the Duomo of Brunelleschi.
The hotel entrance and lobby have been reinstated to their original grandeur, with Pucci touches such as cushions that decorate the sumptuous sofas in a strong solid statement of black and fuchsia, whilst two armchairs undergo the ultimate Pucci treatment through a velvet flower print that merges renaissance motifs with a pop art spirit. The modern and sophisticated look of the hotel lobby is completed with a hand tufted rug featuring the iconic “Lamborghini” print from the Emilio Pucci Archives in nuances of pinks, greys, white and black.
Olga Polizzi has also created a completely new look for the guest rooms and suites. By reducing the number from 102 to 80, many of them have been completely restructured and have increased in size to offer guests a more luxurious and spacious experience. Each of the rooms and suites has been designed to give a sense of calm and freshness and the tranquil tones used, combined with the luxurious fabrics in a mix of materials, create a predominantly Italian feel, mirroring the essence of Rocco Forte.
