Sicilian architect, Giuseppe Alito, has overseen the architecture and designed many pieces of furniture which were then handcrafted by artisans in Tuscany and Sicily. Neri has drawn on influences from his life to create a bespoke home from home where no two corners are the same.
In addition to sourcing pieces from around the world, such as the beautiful bathroom tiles from Fez in Morocco, Neri has also overseen many aspects of the design, such as the magnificent marble table in the lobby.
When it comes to lighting, guests will see the works of Coordinates by Michael Anastassiades by FLOS whose modern pieces are inspired by mathematical precision of the Cartesian grid.
Together with handpicked antique pieces, green marble from Greece, carpets from Iran and rattan chairs from Italian designer, Lio Carminati, guests will see a completely unique fusion of cultures, colours and materials, a realisation of Neri and Giuseppe’s vision.
Located in one of the city’s most sought-after locations, Corso Genova 11, Vico Milano is just a short walk to the Duomo and the fashionable district of Via Tortona, home to designer showrooms and a Milan Fashion Week hotspot.
A little piece of Milanese history, the site of the guesthouse was once a factory which designed and produced the legendary Legnano racing bikes, before becoming the studio and showroom for the Baccheschi Berti family’s fashion brand, Bungai.
Creativity has always been part of its DNA, so it is a fitting location for such an innovative hideaway. Guests will be welcomed to Vico Milano as the Baccheschi Berti family would welcome a personal friend into their own home.
Throughout their stay bespoke experiences will be available and the aim is for a guest to depart feeling like a local and having uncovered the authentic side of Milan.
