Rome’s G-Rough Hotel: 20th Century Modernism in a 17th Century Building

Architecture & Interiors

G-Rough-Rome-2Modern-3Characterizing it as expressing “a very Italian sense of luxury,” Italian designers Emanuela Garosci and Gabriele Salini have transformed a 17th Century Roman building into a 21st Century boutique hotel—liberally laced with 20th Century modernist furnishings. In refurbishing the G-Rough hotel, located in the city’s famous Piazza Navona, Garosci and Salini have created something of an on-trend, 5-star Bohemian rhapsody—merging ancient (both authentic and faux) with modernist furniture and lighting, faded hues with vibrant colors, rough-hewn plaster walls and old wooden beams with gleaming masterworks of Italian Modernism (that Sputnik chandelier alone is killing us). As if we needed another reason for booking a Roman holiday.
