Aman Venice overlooks the Grand Canal and is located in “sestiere” of San Polo, the smallest of the six districts of the city and one of the most authentic and historical, known for its magnificent private houses, churches and markets.
The 16th century Palazzo, in which Aman Venice is housed, was built by architect Giacomo De Grigi, as commissioned by the Coccina family of Bergamo. In 1864 the brothers Nicolò and Angelo Papadopoli Aldobrandini purchased it. They entrusted the restoration of the ”piano nobile” - the largest living area of the Palazzo - in pure Neo-Renaissance and Rococo style to Michelangelo Guggenheim, a leading designer of the Scuola Veneta d’Arte. The Papadopoli brothers also decided to buy the adjoining buildings to create two gardens which today amongst the rarest and most carefully tended private green areas of the city.
Today the decedents of the Papadolpli family also still live in of the building making the Palazzo in every respect sill a home.
The renovation of the Palazzo that today houses Aman Venice was done under the guidance of Claudio Rebeschini and executed by Dottor Group, one of the most important Italian companies in the field of conservation of cultural heritage and won the heritage prize for the best restoration in Italy in 2014.
Aman Venice offers 24 rooms and suites. Each is different from the next. All feature unique design, some with precious frescoes protected by the Belle Arti, stucco and details that reflect the splendor of art and architecture of past centuries including some the famed artist Givoanni Battista Tiepolo. The Venetian style is in harmonious contrast with the furnishings and the contemporary design of Jean Michel Gathy which reflect the aesthetic vision, the minimalism and the discreet luxury that characterize Aman around in the world.
