The 150-year-old Palazzo Daniele expunged its heavy past, including furniture, and returned to its core essentials. In the nine suites, bare walls feature the cracks of time and monastic beds take center stage, serving to exaggerate the grandeur of the original ceiling frescoes and mosaic flooring. Sister property of G-Rough in Rome, the townhouse is part of Gabriele Salini’s collection of wholly original hotels that bind art, design, history, and authenticity.
Palazzo Daniele has been in the Petrucci family for five generations and the place reflects long-time owner Francesco Petrucci’s passion for art through a wicked contemporary collection gracing the walls, as well as through sculptural pieces that double as lights, wardrobes, and more. Located in the village of Gagliano del Capo in Puglia where the Adriatic’s rocky coastline meets the sandy beaches of the Ionian Sea, the palazzo features a series of courtyards with an orangery and an ink-black swimming pool.
