translate the ancient city with a contemporary design
located close to Venice’s famous historical and cultural attractions, including the La Fenice Theater and the Accademia Galleries, pianca palace (see more here) is based on its close connection to the city, which is best expressed through its panoramic views over the terracotta rooftops. with its so-called “idea factory”, the team of pianca (see more here) aims to constantly update the perception of the role of design and to study the relationships between form and function.
the rooms, with comfortable and warm atmospheres, have been designed to favor the well-being of each guest. the Veneto-based pianca hallmark is defined by clean lines, combinations of textures and natural elegance. these elements are expressed through the ambience of the hotel – the lighting and colors, bright or neutral, are inspired by the typical palette of Venetian facades. such attention to detail marks a constant reference to the tradition of the ancient city.
unique and eclectic suites
palazzo pianca offers a blend of emotional experiences and history, offering eclectic style rooms and suites made even more beautiful with pianca furniture. suites – peacock, giglio, and mezzanine – are generously large and open, with a living room and a bedroom.
luxury rooms – botanical, blue & brown deluxe penthouse, and artist – are also comfortable and welcoming with their bright fabrics and colors, as are the compact and welcoming Classic Rooms, featuring a desk and open closet combined with warm hues and soft lighting. a rooftop area completes the project, celebrating the postcard panoramic view of Venice.
interiors combine both contemporary and historical elements
company president, aldo pianca comments: ‘palazzo pianca is more than just a hotel. it is a challenge for us that we took up with immense pride and a desire to prove ourselves, from the start.
