Brera Design District


Casa Baglioni, the new hotel in the Baglioni Collection set to open in Milan’s Brera district this year to a design by architects Spagnulo & Partners and a selection of works from the Stefano Cecchi Trust Collection during Milan Design Week

Casa Baglioni, the new hotel in the Baglioni Collection set to open in Milan’s Brera district this year to a design by architects Spagnulo & Partners, offers a look behind the scenes during Milan Design Week, as it becomes the stage for an exclusive art exhibition: In-Between. Where Art meets Design.

Spagnulo&Partners have created a show to explore the subtle relationship between art and design that underpins the concept for the new Casa Baglioni. It features works by four great international artists – Enrico Castellani, Agostino Bonalumi, Anne Imhof and Giulio Paolini – from the Stefano Cecchi Trust Collection, created by entrepreneur Stefano Cecchi and curated by Iole Pellion di Persano.

The exhibition endorses the idea of a dialogue between interior design and works of art as a means of discovering new visual languages. It is a process that leads to a vision of an integrated space where art, design and architecture interweave to create a world of original expressive possibilities. With this event, Baglioni Hotels & Resorts and Spagnulo & Partners are championing this creative approach, as a conceptual overture to the future Casa Baglioni’s defining themes, inspired by the great artistic flowering of the 1960s Milan avant-garde.

Baglioni Hotels & Resorts

Ambassadors of fine Italian hospitality, the Baglioni Hotels & Resorts are private, elegant, intimate places to stay. Under CEO Guido Polito’s stewardship, the brand has developed a concept of contemporary luxury centred on tailored service that makes guests feel comfortable and at ease every day.

The Collection now numbers 4 exclusive hotels – 3 in the heart of Italy’s finest art cities (Florence, Venice and Rome) and one in the centre of London’s Kensington district – plus 3 resorts, namely in Punta Ala, Tuscany, on Maagau island in the Maldives, and in Sardinia with the brand-new Baglioni Resort Sardinia, opened on 1 June 2021 just north of San Teodoro on beautiful Lu Impostu beach. This year, the Collection acquires an extra dimension with the opening in May of the Baglioni Masseria Muzza a few minutes from Otranto and, in the fourth quarter, of Casa Baglioni in the heart of Brera in Milan.

Stefano Cecchi Trust Collection

The Stefano Cecchi Trust Collection and art fund was created by Turin entrepreneur Stefano Cecchi to support selected emerging and established artists and reposition their works with a new and higher profile on the international market. The Collection brings together an array of names, places, careers and techniques in a coherent whole despite their diversity. A judicious selection of paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs and NFTs has seen the Collection grow rapidly in importance, carving out a role on the contemporary post-war art scene. From 2021, the Collection has assembled two catalogues featuring over fifty artists. There are outstanding works by Jannis Kounellis, Hermann Nitsch, Hans Hartung, Mario Merz, Joseph Kosuth, Enrico Castellani, Agostino Bonalumi, Giulio Paolini, Gilberto Zorio, Nan Goldin, Cindy Sherman, Christo, Shusaku Arakawa, Jacques Villeglé, Andy Warhol, Mario Schifano, Julião Sarmento, Enzo Cucchi, Anne Imhof, Hugo McCloud and JR.
