As anticipated by Tony Capuano, CEO of Marriott, in a recent interview released to the Italian business newspaper Sole24Ore, the group would have in pipeline the opening of a new structure, under the brand “W”, in Italy. The new opening is set to open Florence by 2023.
The new Florentine building will have 120 rooms, including 20 suites, some of which overlooking the Florence Duomo and Santa Maria Novella. Another W-branded property is supposed to be inaugurated in Milan by 2022, for a total of 316 keys.
The Italian development plans of the US company include, in addition to the Bulgari in Rome (in Piazza Augusto Imperatore), other new openings, especially in Puglia, Sicily and on Capri Island.
