The luxurious Hotel Savoy in Florence has reopened its doors following an extensive renovation project.

Renovated in collaboration with world renowned Florentine fashion house, Emilio Pucci, Hotel Savoy in Florence has reopened its doors for a brand new season.

Director of Design, Olga Polizzi, has enhanced the timeless elegance of Hotel Savoy, using hints of the Renaissance and the very best artisans. Laudomia Pucci, Image Director at Emilio Pucci, has collaborated on the project, bringing the very essence of Italian design into the hotel to create a unique ambiance.

The collaboration starts with Emilio Pucci producing an exclusive scarf for Hotel Savoy. The historical Piazza della Repubblica, which the hotel overlooks, is redesigned in a typical Pucci way and features an appearance of the Duomo of Brunelleschi. The unique silk scarves, in bright pink and turquoise blue are encased on glass table tops, becoming the key decorative element to fill the terrace restaurant.

The hotel entrance and lobby have been reinstated to their original grandeur, with a five meter high corniced ceiling. The fluid and mostly white space is punctuated with colourful art and design, including paintings by Luca Pignatelli, all adding a sense of glamour. The Pucci touch continues throughout the lobby where the print has been carried over on cushions that decorate the sumptuous sofas in a strong solid statement of black and fuchsia.

The modern and sophisticated look of the hotel lobby is completed with a hand tufted rug featuring the iconic “Lamborghini” print from the Emilio Pucci Archives in nuances of pinks, greys, white and black.

Olga Polizzi & Pucci have also created a completely new look for the guest rooms and suites which have been designed to give a sense of calm, freshness and the tranquil tones used, combined with the luxurious fabrics in a mix of materials, create a predominantly Italian feel, mirroring the essence of Rocco Forte.
