Art in the Hotel
The façade and curved architecture of Palazzo Matteotti, home to the Banca Imi offices, have remained almost completely intact, with the interior spaces remaining faithful to their form. The elements constituting the "scenic design" are a metaphor rich in expressive, cultural and historical references, which together create a unique space for meeting, socialisation and artistic communication.
It is a location accustomed to hosting art exhibitions, in addition to the art shows organised in the city's museums. The Hotel also houses a Museum Hall, and some suites boast works by masters such as Sironi and Fontana, stand-out exponents of the Milanese artistic lifestyle.
The building represents the first great "permanent installation" of Expo 2015, the work of Milanese architect Italo Rota.
