Portrait Milano, part of the Lungarno Collection hotel group founded by the Ferragamo family, makes its debut in Milan at the former Archiepiscopal Seminary at 11, Corso Venezia. Built in 1564 in a strategic central location, it is Europe’s oldest seminary and the world’s second oldest. This magnificent structure features a baroque entrance designed by Francesco Maria Richini in 1652, which leads to a 3,095m2 piazza framed by a double colonnaded loggia.
The project aims to breathe new life into this historic location by combining the hotel’s private purpose with the Piazza’s public identity.
RIMOND has been a part of the process since the beginning, assisting and supporting the family. We are actively involved in obtaining the required permits from the Milan Municipality and the Fine Arts Department.
