Palazzo Durazzo: an all-suite palace reopens in the heart of Genoa

By Friday, 22 March 2024 13:12

Palazzo Durazzo, a newly renovated all-suite, has reopened in the heart of Genoa. 

Owned by the descendants of the family who commissioned its construction over four centuries ago, Palazzo Durazzo underwent a seven-year restoration and now boasts twelve suites, a two-floor lounge with a bar, and a frescoed breakfast room overlooking the port.

Blending original elements with contemporary art

Built in 1624 by the Durazzo family, the palace originally served to host distinguished guests visiting Genoa. After a period of some years as a university campus, it then underwent a meticulous restoration aimed at preserving the historical integrity of the building and original architectural elements such as the ornate facade, refined halls, frescoes, and terrace floors, while a contemporary touch has been introduced with an exhibition of works by contemporary artists. 

“Guests are encouraged to embark on a novel experience”

“The palace, which belongs to my husband’s family, has hosted a myriad of notable figures, from cardinals to princes, governors, and statesmen,- says  Emanuela Brignone Cattaneo, - so it felt natural for us to restore it to  its former prestige. Palazzo Durazzo, as it is today, is the culmination of seven years of meticulous restoration dedicated to preserving its history. Guests are encouraged to embark on a novel experience in this culturally rich, and often underestimated, city.”
