The Hotel Mentana is located in one of the most characteristic spots of Milan, and in the last years a complete renovation gave it new life making it ready to welcome you in its comfortable new design rooms.
Thanks to Franco Rocchi, an illuminated entrepreneur, in collaboration with Arts designer Ara, a new concept of hospitality is born, aiming to create a new emotional connection between the hotel and the client, privileging the role of the five senses as a weapon of seduction.
“Whenever possible, I would like thoughts and realizations to have a double meaning : on the first hand a meaning that is truly functional, on the other hand something highly artistic as it is my requirement to give a UNIQUE, INTIMATE AND ENGAGING welcome, with great respect for the place and its surroundings, accompanying the guest during his stay, to live the environment, art and design in a dialogue with continuously mutating spaces..." .

NOTES ABOUT DESIGNER PATRIZIA LANZAROTTI/ARA
Patrizia Lanzarotti is an Interiors-architect and designer starting her activity with trade name Ara & partners in 2007.
Born in Lombardia, she has been living and working in Milan for more than twenty years, but she has exported her “feature” and her ability both in Italy and abroad.
In her projects she succeeds in combining a mix of exclusive characteristics, from the aesthetic sensibility to the functional solutions, the creativity and the capacity to unite at best past and present time. All this allowed her to achieve that unique and indispensable merger between a craftsman and an artist.
"Someone said that a passionate person suffers more during his life because he exposes himself, he uncovers more than the others and therefore he is subject to disillusionment. In spite of this I know that I could never live but this way, infusing enthusiasm in my job, the desire to put myself on the line, to always feed with passion an idea, a dream or a project. I firmly believe that this can be caught in the permanent marks left along my way"
