The Grand Hotel et de Milan’s Presidential Suite is dedicated to the Maestro Giuseppe Verdi. The Maestro chose the Suite 105 of the once called “ Albergo di Milano”, to alternate the hustle and bustle of the city to the quieter and relaxing life of his country house of Sant'Agata. In those years, the Maestro was working at the Othello and on the occasion of his first performance, cheered by the adoring crowd, Verdi went onto the balcony of his apartment with the tenor Tamagno to sing some arias of the opera. The people of Milan shown the same veneration when, some years later, they asked the Director of the Hotel to affix notes regarding the Maestro’s critical health conditions that ultimately led Verdi to his death on January 27th, 1901
