In the heart of Brescia, halfway between Milan and Verona, stands a 13th century palazzo decorated with frescoes from 1750. Vipp opens its opulent gates to an ephemeral hotel experience fusing Scandinavian minimalism with Baroque maximalism.
Entering the opulent gates of the 13th century palazzo in the heart of Brescia is like stepping into an old master’s painting. A voluminous staircase framed by pastel frescoes guides the guest in almost royal manner to the Vipp guesthouse occupying the first floor.
The Baroque frames will take on a new dimension melding together art, design, and hospitality with a pop-up hotel by Vipp. Envisioned as a liveable installation, realised by Danish interior designer, Julie Cloos Mølsgaard, Vipp Palazzo Monti is the 7th entry in Vipp’s guesthouse portfolio, a deconstructed hotel concept involving leading architects and designers in the exploration of architectural archetypes turned one-of-a kind bookable venues.
Vipp Palazzo Monti is open April 18th – May 18th, 2023
