A nineteenth century building – first a private residence, then home to the actors who appeared onstage at nearby Teatro alla Scala – Palazzo Trussardi alla Scala, at the corner of the homonymous square and overlooking the famous theatre, is the successor of what once was the old Hotel Marino alla Scala. Now a multi-functional hub, some of the building’s spaces are open to the city.
Open on Saturday and Sunday. Free visits at fixed times and subject to availability; no booking required.
TRUSSARDI, THE CONTEMPORARY ITALIAN LIFESTYLE BRAND
Founded in Bergamo in 1911 as a gloves manufacturer, Trussardi established itself over time as a leader in leather goods and accessories, combining high-quality materials, avant-garde design and research.
Today Trussardi is recognized worldwide as an Italian lifestyle brand, synonymous with excellence, traditional craftsmanship and contemporary elegance.
The Group produces and distributes two lines in ready-to-wear clothing, leather goods and accessories – Trussardi and Trussardi Jeans – and also has a large portfolio of design products, furniture, perfumes, eyewear and other licensed products. Over the course of its development, Trussardi became one of the first fashion brands to work actively in the food sector with Café Trussardi and Il Ristorante Trussardi Alla Scala.
The Group is present in 47 countries through a unique and selective distribution network including over 160 monobrand stores in Italy, Europe and Asia, over 1,800 multibrand stores, corner shops, department stores and the Trussardi.com website for e-commerce.
PALAZZO TRUSSARDI ALLA SCALA
Built from 1874 to 1876 as a residential mansion, the Palazzo Trussardi Alla Scala was converted into a hotel in 1905 and remained a temporary residence for the artists performing at the famous Alla Scala Theatre for a long time.
Bought by Trussardi in 1989, the Palazzo was officially opened in 1996, after a refurbishment carried out under the supervision of Architect Pierluigi Cerri (Studio Gregotti & Associati). Since then, this late-19th century architecture has been a combination of historical traits and architectural, technological, contemporary, and innovative solutions, achieved through the coexistence of different environments and functions creating an ideal link between fashion, restaurants and design. A territory open to the interaction with different experiences.
Located in the historical and cultural center of Milan, the building is conceived as a multi-functional place, symbol of Trussardi’s contemporary lifestyle and its eclectic spirit. The boutique, which covers a surface area of 250 square meters on one level, harmoniously accommodates Trussardi apparel and accessories for men and women and houses Café Trussardi. On the first floor there is the Trussardi Alla Scala Restaurant and on the upper floors the showrooms.
