Caleido warms up the Radisson Collection Hotel, through its rooms of the Palazzo Touring Club, in Milan.

The project to restore and renovate Palazzo Bertarelli has been completed by the Italian architect, Marco Piva.

This building is one of the most stunning expressions of the late art nouveau period in Milan and the historic headquarters of the Italian Touring Club, and is now the new Radisson Collection Hotel Palazzo Touring Club Milan.

The Milan building is named after the geographer and caver, Luigi Vittorio Bertarelli, who was one of the founders of the Italian Touring Club (TCI). It has been completely renovated and restored through work of considerable cultural interest.

To emphasise the building's historic heritage, which is still owned by the TCI, Marco Piva was inspired by the subject of travel, which has always been in his blood. The building was designed by Achille Binda in 1915, and the work restored its original sophistication. This 5-star Radisson Collection Hotel will be serving the needs of evolving tourism that engages with the city in a timeless vibe that is suspended between the past and the future.

The main areas of focus were the restoration of the monumental façade, the fulfilment of new requirements based on the change of intended use, and the transformation of space while maintaining a connection with pre-existing functions, achieved through a detailed design that combines historic and contemporary values.

93 electric radiators from the Caleido Ice Collection have been fitted in the en-suite bathrooms, and were chosen for their sharp, essential design and certified high-performance ratings.

In this blend of historic and contemporary style, Marco Piva has custom-designed most of the furnishings with materials, finishes and meticulous attention to detail, evoking elements in the collective imagination that are linked to travel and the founding story of the Italian Touring Club.
