Palazzo Victoria goes back to the 70’s

What happened during the 70’s?

We danced to the rhythm of Donna Summer, Gloria Gaynor, ABBA and The Bee Gees. We dreamed, cried, laughed and screamed over the work of Gene Hackman, Faye Dunaway, Marlon Brando, Linda Blair and Sylvester Stallone

When we look at old pictures, we smile at our peculiar hairstyles, and laughter comes when we remember those moves of us on the dancefloor. Those were the wonderful 70’s

What happens now?

Palazzo Victoria wants to recreate the feeling and the aesthetics of those great years, in order to celebrate Christmas and the New Year in a very special fashion. If you want to dust off your old wardrobe and feel the spirit of the 70’s again, you can now do it with us. These are our proposals for you:

Going back to Verona for New Year’s eve… in the name of my grandparents!

Between 1958 and 1959 my grandfather, an American professor, spent some time travelling across Italy, teaching English to earn a living and discovering a land he always dreamt about in his childhood. It was during the New Year’s eve of 1958 when, celebrating the night in Verona, he met my grandmother. It was love at first sight, he said. Ever since then, their friends started to call them ‘Romeo & Juliet’. Also a new tradition began. They would spend every New Year’s eve in Verona to honor the night they met and fell in love.

Sadly, my grandma passed away two years ago and my grandpa followed her this year. But, in order to overcome the grief, we have had this nice idea. All my family, including me, will go to Verona this New Year’s eve to pay tribute to the memory of these two amazing and highly loved people. We even found a beautiful hotel in the very city center: Palazzo Victoria. This year they are celebrating the Festive Season with a Gatsby-inspired package, so we will dance and have some cocktails in their names.


Grandma and grandpa, wherever Heaven is, I know you are in there now, but I do hope to feel part of your presence in this magical city where you met each other. A place for the lovers and now a place for us all too. Thanks to Palazzo Victoria for having us during these thrilling days!

Mr. H.P.
