Hotel Grand’ Italia was formerly the residence of Guglielmo Folchi, who was bestowed with the honour of becoming Cavaliere del Lavoro (Knightly Order of Merit for Labour). It was built in 1907 under the superintendence of the Engineer Giuseppe Pesaro not far from the Padua railway station. It lies on the corner of two streets. Due to its dynamic and rounded structure, the architecture of the Folchi Palace sheds the old schemes. Still today it impresses with its liberty-rococo style, its very essence. Despite all the renovations done throughout the years, the original architectural style of the Palace has been preserved with great care. Hotel Grand’ Italia continues to dominate the scene, welcoming its guests in a sumptuous and regal atmosphere, which is perfectly tuned to its irresistible aristocratic charm. The strategic position of the Hotel allows you to reach the center of Padua, which is just a short walk away.
