Gian Luca is and always was a restaurateur, working in the Brianza area. With his partner Gabriella, he decides to "do a triple gainer" and move to the center of Venice. And so, in 2012, the couple bought the building where Corte di Gabriela would be born. The core idea of the project is to offer an ever-improving service, and above all to make every customer feel at home. To do so, the two companions thought about every detail: they took care, alongside Marco Poloni of Poloni Arredamenti, and more recently alongside Alberto Maschietto of L'Ambiente, to completely restore the building. By observing and drawing every element, down to the smallest (take a look at the staircase leading to the hotel office: it's a drawing by Gian Luca!). And after the restoration, the philosophy of the hotel: breakfasts as a fundamental basis from which to start, with a quality that increases week by week, and allows guests to savor a timeless Venice. And much more, including the addition of an indoor laundry, an unparalleled luxury in this particular city.
Well, it's nothing but sheer passion and availability: it's about being the first to arrive every morning, the one who prepares breakfasts for his customers with his own hands and, above all, being always available to give advice on the city. "Go to Giudecca: the emptiness created in those spaces is perhaps the best way to start understanding Venice. And if you need advice for a restaurant or a show, I will always help you, recommending only and exclusively places that I also attend. Real places, like real Venetians ".
