Born in Verona, I have vivid memories of this splendid Palazzo and the time I used to spend admiring it through the ancient Roman passageway of Porta Borsari.
Today, the opportunity of having purchased it after 40 years spent abroad, dedicated entirely to the luxury hotel business, arouses two strong emotions in me: the first is clearly one of great joy, the second is being vested with a great responsibility to my city.
Verona has a rich history and culture as well as being, in the collective imagination, one of the most romantic destinations in the world. It has been my wish to create in Palazzo Victoria a place where everyone can feel at home from the very first second but also a meeting place where the combination of styles can inspire the desire to meet different people and cultures. A sort of agora where visitors and the people of Verona have an opportunity to meet so that their stay in our city becomes an experience they remember for a long time but also a splendid home to set off from to discover everything that Verona, and the Veneto region in general, have to offer.
I look forward to seeing you to extend my personal welcome,
Marcello FM Pigozzo
