The Procuratie Vecchie in St Mark's Square open to the public after 500 years

The Procuratie Vecchie, the headquarters of Generali and its Foundation The Human Safety Net, open their doors to the public for the first time in 500 years, offering an "unprecedented" view of St Mark's Square

A new story for the Procuratie Vecchie which, from today, for the first time in 500 years, open their doors to the public, unveiling the spaces of THSN - The Human Safety Net, Generali Group's Foundation, which has been based in the monumental building since 1832, and opening up a "never-before-seen" view of St Mark's Square.The project for the recovery and reconfiguration of the 12,400 square metres owned by Generali, was signed, following an international competition and not without controversy, by the archistar David Chipperfield, Gold Medal of the Royal Institute of British Architects, and the David Chipperfield Architects Milan studio, and envisaged not only the recovery of the structure's ancient appearance, eliminating the additions made in modern times, but also a new permeability between the interior of the building and the exterior of the entire Marches area.

Polite staff, and always smiling

Central location, polite and smiling staff, reasonable rates, utterly unequalled old-style building, the Baroque church outside the window brings Venice right into the room. Bear in mind that you're not just a paying customer, but a guest - there's a big difference.

Professional staff

The professional staff, the kind and friendly attitude of everyone, and the strategic position of the hotel, minutes from St Mark's; the nearby vaporetto stop and the possibility of getting into a gondola very close to the hotel. Breakfast is delicious and varied. The building faces a magnificent Baroque church.

A hotel that cares about service

The hotel overlooks the lovely Campo de Santa Maria del Giglio, in a central location close to the historic city centre. A hotel that cares about service. A particularly elegant classic atmosphere, especially the rooms and the breakfast room.

3 stars, magnificent location

I came across this magnificently located 3-star hotel between Campo San Stefano and St Mark's. The hotel is beautifully kept and comfortable, furnished in classic Venetian style. The staff, both reception and front of house, are extremely friendly and polite, always ready to meet the needs of guests. Years ago I ran a consortium of 43 hotels, and I can state that his hotel would definitely be at the top of its class.
