In the heart of Brescia, halfway between Milan and Verona, stands a 13th century palace decorated with frescoes from 1750. Since 2017, under the aegis of curator and founder Edoardo Monti, Palazzo Monti has hosted more than 200 artists in residence.

The Baroque frames will take on a new dimension melding together art, design, and hospitality with a pop-up hotel by Danish design brand Vipp. Envisioned as a liveable installation, realised by Danish interior designer, Julie Cloos Mølsgaard, Vipp Palazzo Monti is the 7th entry in Vipp’s guesthouse portfolio, a deconstructed hotel concept involving leading architects and designers in the exploration of architectural archetypes turned one-of-a kind bookable venues.


Like stepping into a masters painting
Entering the opulent gates of the palazzo is like stepping into an old masters painting. A voluminous staircase framed by pastel frescoes guides the guest in almost royal manner to the Vipp guesthouse occupying the first floor.


Three consecutive rooms, including a hallway, a salon and bedroom with adjacent walk-in and bathroom are transformed into a contemporary suite boasting Vipp’s minimalist furniture and lighting collection against a backdrop of ornamented décor and art pieces. Danish interior designer, Julie Cloos Mølsgaard has imagined both the rooms as well as the combined kitchen and dining area occupying the ground floor. Here in the so-called piano nobile (hosting floor), a modular V1 kitchen island from Vipp in matte black takes centre stage in a curious dialogue between contemporary industrial design under a loft of historic Venetian frescoes and over a tiled floor of locally crafted jade tiles. Repeated green detailing is a reminiscence of the region’s interior style from the 1600s.


Waking up under 3-meter-high fresco-adorned ceilings as the only guest in the ephemeral space gives plenty of room for an out of the ordinary experience. The communal space invites for an espresso and chat with the three current artists following Palazzo Monti’s residency program. Visit the artist in their workshop on the top floor of the palazzo with scenic views over Brescia’s historic neighbourhood boasting UNESCO heritage sites and endless streets of osterias full of charm and Italian delicacies.
