The new addition to the Shedir Collection is set to open in the centre of Rome in November.
Located on Via Del Corso, Palazzo Roma occupies four floors of a building previously owned by local aristocrats and members of the Roman noblesse. The property features original frescoes, coffered ceilings, wood panelling, Versailles teak parquet, and rare marbles.
Comprised of 39 rooms and suites Palazzo Roma wants to celebrate the splendour heritage of the features of an aristocratic home with an innovative and modern disruptive approach. Behind the design is Milan based architect Giampiero Panepinto, who also known also for his work with Hotel Vilon and Capri Tiberio Palace. His vision for Palazzo Roma and overall attention to detail delivered a look and feel that merges contrasting colours, materials, and surfaces in the most harmonious way. Always in full respect for the heritage of the building.
Talking about working on the hotel, Panepinto said: “Working on this project was very rewarding, particularly when we came across many elements that we were adamant about preserving such as frescos and wood panelling. Respect and conservation of the building features have been my mantra since we started the works two years ago. Incorporating those elements with a modern-day vision of aristocracy allowed us to create a space that is both luxurious and friendly, intimate and authentic – a true representation of Shedir Collection’s hospitality ethos.”
Each room has specific and individual characteristic patterns using 9 different types of marble are displayed, with each bathroom being unique. Each one features a distinctive floor plan to respect the building and preserve its original heritage. Noteworthy design details can be seen throughout the rooms – including intarsia wood on the first-floor ceilings, fabric wallpapers on the second and third floors or the use of marble to create ‘Salles de Marbre” which takes inspiration from the French term for bathrooms.
Meanwhile, the public areas include the lobby which has details including: a grand piano stands out in what was once the mansion’s ballroom while in the middle, a statue of Euterpe – the goddess of music – will be seen, as well as installations with photographs of musical artists and classical composers. Precious marbles such as Bardiglio, Giallo Siena, Nero Marquinia, or Carrara add the ultimate touch of luxury to the room. In the next room is the bar which is set to offer an elegant atmosphere where guests are invited to savour signature drinks. Meanwhile, the restaurant which is spearheaded by Executive Chef Federico Sartucci, is surrounded by frescoes adorning the walls from floor to ceiling, crystal chandeliers and an elegant piano. The proposed cuisine draws inspiration from Roman tradition and the Chef’s extensive travels, employing various techniques to achieve unparalleled flavours.
