September 16, 2010

VENICE -  Hilton Molino Stucky Venice was opened on 1 June 2007 and is located on Giudecca Island. It was created from the restoration of 13 buildings which constituted an ancient flour mill dating back to between the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. Today it is also recognized as one of the best examples of industrial architecture in Venice. Its name and structure have been retained to preserve the historical memory and will of its founder, Giovanni Stucky, whose aim was “to establish a connection with the city.” Nowadays it is regarded as one of the most impressive and iconic buildings in Venice.

LocationGiudecca Island consists of eight gondola-shaped interconnected islets lying to the south of Venice and boasts a central position only five minutes from the heart of Venice by private water taxi. This convenient location provides guests with a peaceful atmosphere away from the crowded tourist paths.

Hilton Molino Stucky Venice is well connected to transportation services: just a 15 minute water taxi ride to the Santa Lucia Railway Station (Venice) or 30 minutes to the Marco Polo Airport (Venice).

Guest rooms and suitesThe hotel offers 379 luxury rooms and suites, consisting of:

In summer, it gives guests the option to enjoy a meal on the panoramic terrace, surrounded views of Venice and the Giudecca Canal.

Aromi’s secret is the use of simple quality ingredients. To ensure his regional menu is authentic, Chef Luise uses fresh seasonal produce whilst respecting the Italian gastronomic culture: the results are creative Venetian dishes, maintaining the right balance between tradition and innovation.

HILTON MOLINO STUCKY – A DINING TRADITIONHilton Molino Stucky, Venice features no less than six restaurants and bars. Overseeing the culinary offering is Franco Luise a much travelled and equally well acclaimed Venetian chef who emotionally recounts how much it means to him to return to Venice and participate in the revival of the Molino Stucky:

“As a young chef, I took the Vaporetto (Venice’s public water taxis) everyday from the railway to the footsteps of the derelict Molino Stucky. It used to loom before me like a cross between an ancient pyramid and an unused museum. I would look at this magnificent building and say to my friends, “One day I will be the chef there. Believe Me.”

Chef Luise also tells how, to ensure his menu is local, 80 percent of his ingredients are sourced from the Venice markets and follow the natural process of the seasons. The dishes are relentlessly Venetian, with Mediterranean influences drawn from his tour of duty in Europe.
