Blog — Palazzo Pianca

Recently opened in late 2021, Palazzo Pianca is a new hotel in the heart of historic Venice, between the Church of Santa Maria del Giglio and the Grand Canal, in an elegant 16th century palazzo.

Not just a hotel, Palazzo Pianca is an applied research project; a Research Hub that Pianca wanted to explore the meaning of hospitality: a hub for experimenting with hospitality styles and trends destined to be modified over time in order to constantly test and introduce new style and function solutions.

Palazzo Pianca is founded on its strong bond with the city, at the same time offering itself as an ideas factory to constantly update the perception of the role of design.

Pianca’s trademark clean lines, textural combinations and natural elegance are the defining qualities of the hotel’s rooms and suites, which combine beautiful lighting and colours in a constant reference to the city’s tradition, in a meshing of past and contemporary culture.

Guests can choose between comfortable rooms suites with eclectic style, rendered even more beautiful with classic pieces from the Pianca collections, created by major names in the design world like Calvi Brambilla, Cristina Celestino, Emilio Nanni and Philippe Tabet, and products designed by Tim Kerp, Stefano Gaggero and Studio Metrica.

‘The building is an oasis of tranquility in the heart of the city. It contains spaces that far exceed the pure concept of hospitality, offering itself as a place which explores all of the constantly-shifting forms of living and travel today.’
