The purpose of the revision of the five apartments at the Hotel Washington in the beautiful surroundings of the Vittoriale, was to make anonymous and inappropriate spaces accessible to visitors from all over the world and to bring the public closer to the immense cultural heritage and personality of Gabriele D'Annunzio.
The study of five units, each one associated with an element, Water, Earth, Fire, Air and Time, should aim to stimulate intense feelings among visitors, first of all astonishment. Here are then the five apartments, with a totally different furniture styles, characterized, however, by the common desire to deeply impress and to stimulate the five senses: sight, touch, hearing, smell, taste. All the senses that D’Annunzio loved to exalt and exaggerate in his life experiences.
Every single apartment becomes the entrance to a short trip. The trip is understood as an experience to taste, where the emotions to live, things to see, touch, feel, hear are too many and the time passes quickly
