Superior Suite at Grand Hotel et de Milan

Luchino Visconti has always been part of the family at the Grand Hotel et de Milan, which was also at the time a renowned location for business meetings, the ideal place for a rendezvous before the première at La Scala, and then all in line along Via Manzoni towards the Theatre. At the Grand Hotel et de Milan Visconti called the young Danilo Donati, who then became one of the most famous tailors of the theatre world, when he was still taking his first steps in the textile field, working as a delivery boy in a shop of fabrics in Via Montenapoleone. Visconti noticed his talent and proposed him to move to Rome in order to work for a big theatre tailor's shop, setting in this way the basis of a professional and friendly bond that would have lasted all life long.
