Yesterday, a hundred balconies over the sea of the mermaids

In 1949, engineer Roberto Fernandes bought the Grand Hotel Royal des Etrangers.
The nineteenth-century building was considered to be one of the symbols of Naples’ waterfront and hosted celebrities such as Oscar Wilde up until the end of World War II when German troops set fire to the building.

In 1955, where the historic hotel once stood, the Hotel Royal designed by Ferdinand Chiaromonte and the same engineer Fernandes was inaugurated. Gio Ponti later participated in the project by designing the furniture, the swimming pool and creating the logo.

Today, the vintage charm of the Royal Continental

The task of designing and furnishing the hotel’s interiors was entrusted to Italian architect and designer Gio Ponti.

The principle he applied to the structure was that: “every piece of furniture, while still remaining functional, must evoke the imagination of both the designer and the beholder”.

This is how materials such as frisé maple wood, lined mahogany and briar-root became chests of drawers, dressing tables with round mirrors, and tip-up surfaces to be used as desks.

Today, you can stay in one of the 24 museum rooms of the Gio Ponti Floor immersed in his signature designs.

Every piece of furniture, while still remaining functional, must evoke the imagination of both the designer and the beholder Gio Ponti
