Portrait Milano, a jewel of hospitality

Portrait Milano is the latest crown jewel of hospitality from Lungarno Collection, a hotel company owned by the Ferragamo family, born out of the conversion of the former archbishop’s seminary in Corso Venezia

Portrait Milano

The project was entrusted to renowned architect Michele De Lucchi and, with his unmistakable interior design style, architect Michele Bönan. The result is a place offering five-star hospitality inspired by the elegance of Italian craftsmanship. The rooms and suites, overlooking the glazed loggia or the garden, are quiet, secluded spaces that present elements typical of the Milanese salotti of the 1950s: larch floors, furniture in blond walnut, wood panelling alternated with rattan that adorns the walls and the generous use of red and green.

An explicit reference to authentic Tuscan tradition can be seen in the handles in leather and bronzed brass of the doors and wardrobes as well as the surfaces in the bathrooms in Carrara marble or Breccia Medicea, a marble particularly loved by the Medici family, who used it extensively in their Florentine residences. To complete the bathrooms of the most exclusive suites is the Céline White freestanding bath from Devon&Devon, that conveys classic elegance through the use of White Tec Plus, an innovative and sustainable material with a Greenguard Gold certificate that uses Biobased® resins of vegetable origin, has a pleasant feel and is easy to clean.
