Milan, the financial capital of Italy and a city rich in history and art, is a dynamic and modern metropolis with a highly intense cultural life. Leonardo da Vinci’s famous Codex Atlanticus is conserved here at the Ambrosiana, one of the oldest libraries in the world, as well as his internationally renowned, Last Supper at the Santa Maria delle Grazie convent. The works of many other immense artists can be seen in Milan including those of Modigliani, Titian, Veronese, Bramonte, Raphael, Michelangelo and Caravaggio. The renowned La Scala, where the greatest Italian operas were first seen, is also in Milan. The arrow of the Duomo (Dome), the city’s symbol rises to the copper and gold Madonna at 108 meters above the ground. Begun in the 14th century, this enormous cathedral is Gothic, neoclassical and neogothic at the same time. Elegant and luxurious, Milan is an important city for high fashion. Following the lead of New York and Paris, Milan welcomes the greatest names in Italian haute couture during Fashion Week including Versace, Dolce et Gabbana, Prada, Gucci and Armani, all of whom have their headquarters in the Quadrilatero d’Oro, the Victor Emmanuel Gallery or on the Corso Como, Milan’s newest trendy quarter for high fashion.
In 1990, Carla Sozzani, a former fashion editor and a highly respected publisher, opened a gallery and a book shop dedicated to photography and design in an old Milanese building. A year later, she added a boutique combining art, design and fashion from the four corners of the earth, and in 1988, a café restaurant. And for her friends who share the same feeling for Milan as she does, she ended up opening a small hotel, The Three Rooms, which as its name indicates, has only three suites. Overlooking her concept store and facing a small courtyard, the hotel is built on three levels. Each floor has a one hundred square meter apartment consisting of a living room, bedroom and a gigantic bathroom. All three suites were designed by Carla Sozzani herself and are furnished by the greatest names in the world of design including Kris Ruhs, Sebastian Matta, Charles and Roy Eames, Joe Colombo and Arne Jacobsen. Accompanying these vintage masterpieces is the finest in high tech equipment including television, CD players and high speed internet. In this temple of art, fashion and design, guests can visit art exhibits, leaf through magnificent art books, buy the latest style tennis shoes and even sleep if one is inclined to. They can also have lunch or dinner in the trendiest of atmospheres. The Three Rooms is a confidential address where all of Milanese “art de vivre” is united.
Azzedine Alaïa was inspired by the Three Rooms in Milan for his Parisian hotel on the rue de Moussy, which also contains three one hundred square meter suites furnished with work by the greatest names in design. There’s no difference between the two hotels except for the city.
