Tu­rin Pa­la­ce Ho­tel

Reo­pe­ned af­ter years of aban­don­ment, this hi­sto­ri­cal struc­tu­re next to the main sta­tion of the ci­ty is an ar­chi­tec­tu­ral gem that hosts art­works and va­lua­ble items, re­crea­ting the at­mo­sphe­re of so­ber ele­gan­ce that is one of the di­stinc­ti­ve trai­ts of Tu­rin

Master Meeting - - ARTE&OSPITALITÀ -

Acon­cen­tra­tion of To­ri­ne­se es­sen­ce, it is ele­gant, di­screet, and so­ber, crea­ted to meet the needs of the fir­st tra­vel­lers who ar­ri­ved in the ci­ty by train, stop­ping in the brand- new Por­ta Nuo­va sta­tion. Af­ter years of aban­don­ment, the Tu­rin Pa­la­ce co­mes back to li­fe thanks to the in­ter­ven­tion of Rea­le Im­mo­bi­li and the Mar­zot fa­mi­ly, ow­ner of the Spa­da­ri ho­tel at the Duo­mo and the Gran Du­ca di York ho­tel in Mi­lan. « Af­ter 150 years, the ho­tel re­gains its func­tion and its pla­ce in the ur­ban con­text as a tra­vel­lers’ lan­ding pla­ce in a struc­tu­re that pla­ces them at the cen­tre of all its work » , ex­plains Pie­ro Mar­zot, di­rec­tor and ow­ner of the ho­tel, 127 rooms, re­cen­tly elec­ted by Tri­pAd­vi­sor “Be­st ho­tel in Ita­ly” and third “Be­st ho­tel in the world” in 2017.

Art, craf­tsman­ship, and ter­ri­to­ry

The clo­su­re of the hi­sto­ri­cal ho­tel, ope­ned for the fir­st ti­me in 1872, had de­pri­ved the ci­ty of an es­sen­tial point of re­fe­ren­ce, a pla­ce wo­ven wi­th the li­ves of ma­ny To­ri­ne­se peo­ple who used to ce­le­bra­te wed­dings he­re, or­ga­ni­ze mee­tings, par­ti­ci­pa­te in even­ts, and that had al­ways seen it ele­va­te the to­ne and cha­rac­te­ri­ze the land­sca­pe of the area around the sta­tion. «When we had the op­por­tu­ni­ty to ta­ke over the struc­tu­re and gi­ve it new li­fe, on the one hand we wan­ted to pre­ser­ve the main trai­ts that we­re et­ched in the me­mo­ry of the To­ri­ne­se peo­ple, on the other we wan­ted to re­crea­te an ex­pe­rien­ce as co­he­rent as pos­si­ble wi­th the spi­rit of a ci­ty that has in­ve­sted so mu­ch in the re­co­ve­ry of its own hi­sto­ry», con­ti­nues Mar­zot. The new Tu­rin Pa­la­ce has thus re­tur­ned to be an im­por­tant part of Tu­rin, bo­th on an ar­chi­tec­tu­ral le­vel, thanks to the im­pres­si­ve re­struc­tu­ring work, in whi­ch the re­sty­ling of the spa­ces and the in­te­rior de­si­gn choi­ces ha­ve re­mai­ned fai­th­ful to the prin­ci­ples that ha­ve al­ways in­spi­red the buil­ding, so­brie­ty and re­fi­ne­ment, and for the hospitality that it gua­ran­tees to the vi­si­tors of the ci­ty, con­si­de­ra­bly on the ri­se in re­cent years. In ad­di­tion to the clo­se re­la­tion­ship wi­th the ter­ri­to­ry, ano­ther cor­ner­sto­ne of the re­co­ve­ry of this pie­ce of hi­sto­ry and land­sca­pe of Tu­rin was the will to cha­rac­te­ri­ze the ho­tel as a con­tai­ner of con­tem­po­ra­ry
