In Venice, in the university district of Dorsoduro, the designer and interior architect Dorothée Meilichzon rehabilitated a palazzo historic, transformed in the XXth century into headquarters of the shipping company Adriatica, to welcome Il Palazzo Experimental, the last hotel of the Experimental Group. In the hotel restaurant, the designer mixes influences and celebrates Italy.

In charge of the decoration of Il Palazzo Experimental, Dorothée Meilichzon wanted to give back to palazzo its letters of nobility, but bringing a contemporary touch to all interiors, from the rooms to the restaurant.

Under the leadership of the Italian Supper Club, the Adriatica restaurant is the new gastronomic address in the City of the Doges. Located on the ground floor of Il Palazzo Experimental, it unfolds in a large, bright space. Dorothée Meilichzon opted for a timeless Italian decor. It combines classical architectural elements with more contemporary objects and patterns. In the dining room, the wavy benches covered in burgundy monochrome fabrics by Rubelli or striped by Dedar blend harmoniously with Breccia Capraia marbles, Terrazzo Scarpa floors and a pale green ceiling, while the table lamps in blown glass by Opaline white murano and chairs pay homage to two great figures of Italian design: Luciano Vistosi and Gae Aulenti.

A highly referenced restaurant that is both warm and intimate.
