Milan Up Close

The Gallia Family

The founder of our hotel, Carlo Gallia, was known to take great and meticulous care of his business; he wanted Excelsior Hotel Gallia to compete with the very best properties in Europe. The Duke of Bergamo called the hotel “truly regal,” which furthered and enhanced its pedigree. As it happens, Gallia had hospitality on his mind from a young age. At only 17, he left home to learn “the art of the guest.” He remained abroad for the next 15 years, working in several different European locales (London, Paris, Berlin, Lucerne, Monte Carlo, and St. Moritz). Upon returning to Milan with a wealth of experience, he founded our beloved property.


Hotel History

Excelsior Hotel Gallia has long been one of the most prestigious hotels in Italy, ever since its official opening on February 29, 1932. Our architectural jewel of belle époque sophistication is a bona fide icon. For decades, it has remained the hotel of choice for Italy’s social elite. Today, that evocative legacy continues to inspire every detail. Stunning architectural features–including an impressive domed roof, attention-grabbing interiors and a modern new wing–have been cleverly styled by the local designer Marco Piva. The updates offer contemporary accents offset by timeless Milanese artisanal pieces and covetable Italian furnishings.

The Hotel's Design Story

Led by the award-winning Milan-based Studio Marco Piva, Excelsior Hotel Gallia’s interiors feature distinct references to the city’s stylish lifestyle. There are nods to the timeless elegance of the Art Deco era, as well as flashes of sleek modernity. The feeling is enlivened by carefully curated furnishings made by Italian craftsmen.

Designer Furniture

All of Excelsior Hotel Gallia’s furniture is Made in Italy, with several pieces produced in collaboration with Milanese artisans and designers. Discover our unique collection of more than 500 art pieces designed by Studio Marco Piva exclusively for the property, too. These include paintings, sculptures and photographs.
