On the 24th of January 2019, an illuminated dramatic red carpet reception coupled with magnificent works of light and sounds on the building’s facade welcomed the guests at the entrance of Palazzo Montemartini in Rome. Themed “Welcome to the Exceptional”, such a spectacle paralleled the monumental event as Palazzo Montemartini joins the Radisson Collection Hotel, the first in Italy and the tenth in the world to be a part of the luxury places worldwide.
Palazzo Montemartini joins the Radisson Collection Hotel.
Welcome to the Exceptional was hosted by Hotel Manager of Palazzo Montemartini Marco Luzietti together with Giuseppe Marchese, CEO of Ragosta Hotels Collection, and Chema Bastecherrea, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Radisson Hospitality AB.
The celebration of food created by Executive Chef Simone Strano and his numerous kitchen staff, wine and music was spread out on three floors of the hotel.
At the Senses Restaurant and Lounge Bar, the dramatic background of the central fountain illuminated with candles complemented the spectacular musical performances of harpist Micol, rock violinist Leida and deejay Yaya. As the music continues, the main hub of the night’s gastronomic offerings were flowing at Senses with pasta dishes and a vast variety of tasting dishes. The Caschera Spa at the lower ground held the seafood hors d’oeuvres with the eclectic sounds of Alessio De Simone and Giorgio Rima as well as exhibitions of body paintings. On the main floor, the desserts were scattered in different rooms as Vera Dragone and the Velvettoni Swing Orchestra played music.
True to its theme, the night was a spectacular labyrinth of food, music and art!
Built on 1881, the neo-classical Palazzo Montemartini stands in the heart of Rome which is adjacent to the ancient Roman Baths of Diocletian and close to the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri. It is also just a short distance from Termini, the main train station of the capital.
Truly a unique hotel, a portion of the Servian Walls, the first ancient Roman walls built from the 4th century B.C. runs along it.
Its antique architecture blends harmoniously with the contemporary design of the hotel. All of its 82 rooms and suites have ample spaces that are fully equipped with comfort and modern technology for a luxuriant stay. The hotel also houses the distinctive Senses Restaurant and Lounge Bar with an impressive indoor central fountain and classic columns where Executive Chef Simone Strano creates traditional Italian dishes with creative influences, and when the weather permits, a peaceful external garden.
The Radisson Collection is the premium collection of exceptional hotels in unique locations. The hallmark of each Radisson Collection hotel is the distinctiveness of its position and the supreme contemporary and luxurious experience that it offers.
