In 2010, the precious building was acquired by Duetorrihotels Group: a young and dynamic Italian company that is active in the hospitality sector. The mission of the group run by Franco Vanetti is to give back to Italian hotels their traditionally central role in the cultural and social life of several historic cities.
DUE TORRI HOTEL
History & Story
In the 14th century, the Due Torri palace in St Anastasia place was called ‘Dell’Aquila’ (The Eagle Palace), and it was used as an inn since 1674. After changing hands several times, in the second half of the 19th century it was purchased by the Arvedi family and renamed as Grand Hotel Imperiale, soon becoming the most famous hotel in the city. In the 18th century, the hotel hosted the likes of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, among others. It also witnessed such historical events as the crowning of the exiled King Louis XVII of France and the signing of the Peace Treaty of Villafranca between Napoleon III, Vittorio Emanuele II, Archduke Ranieri and Field-Marshal Radetzky. In 1866, Italian patriot Giuseppe Garibaldi came out onto one of the hotel’s balconies overlooking St Anastasia square and talked to the people of Verona. In 1959, after some ups and downs (several ministries of the fascist Salò Republic had installed their headquarters there), it finally became a hotel again thanks to the commitment of Enrico Wallner, an illustrious landowner of Verona.
Starting from 2010, the Hotel has completely restored in all the rooms and common areas. All the tapestries have been removed and now the rooms have original wooden floors. In the spring of 2013, an exclusive roof-top panoramic terrace was opened. The Grill Restaurant is located on the terrace, which is one of the highest rooftops in Verona and offers a full view of the old town. Moreover, the Arena Casarini meeting room reopened in November 2015 after impressive works of renovation. Demolishing the walls has unearthed the magnificent paintings of a last century’s fresco artist Pino Casarini. The Health and Wellness Center, with a state-of-the-art Technogym fitness area, will open soon.
