Vico Milan opened in September 2021 as the sister-property to Castello di Vicarello, a historic 12th century boutique hotel in Maremma, Tuscany, owned by the Italian Baccheschi-Berti family. Vico Milan is the passion project of Neri Baccheschi-Berti, the son of Aurora and Carlos Baccheschi-Berti, who has turned his vision of creating an ultra-boutique guesthouse in Italy’s most fashion forward city, into a reality.
Much like Castello di Vicarello, family is at the very heart of this project with the building previously operating as the studio and showroom for Aurora’s fashion brand, Bungai. Prior to which it was a factory designing and producing legendary Legnano racing bikes.
A fashion week hotspot
Positioned in one of the city’s most sought-after locations, Corso Genova 11, the boutique property 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.
The concept of Vico Milan centres around being a stylish home-from-home; a place to work, meet and relax, so social spaces are a focus. Vico Milan is home to seven bedrooms, each of similar size with the exception of two larger suites.
Completely discrete and intimate, Vico Milano is unlike anything else in the city, and a totally new experience for travellers. 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.
