Milano: Armani Hotel

Milano: Armani Hotel Milano.   The Armani Hotel Milano is located in Giorgio Armani’s hometown above the Emporio Armani block on the very central Via Manzoni. The Armani style and philosophy defines every detail of the ninety-five rooms and suites.  Each element has been personally designed by Giorgio Armani and chosen for sculptural, aesthetic as well as sensual qualities, Armani notes, “I have concentrated all my efforts on delivering my personal aesthetic vision within a precisely defined ambience of total comfort.”

Armani Hotel Milano – a detail.    A detail of the second Armani Hotel, (the first is in Dubai), which is housed in the ex Assicurazioni Generali building, it has been “topped” by a stylish glass ‘hat” allowing the visitors to have an amazing 360 degree view of the rooftops and terraces of Milan. The building was designed in 1937 by Enrico Griffini and built with reinforced concrete; the contours of the doors and windows are in marble. The statues of the patron saints of Milan, Venice and Trieste are by Marcello Mascherini.
