In 1964, Gio Ponti and the engineer Emanuele Porzio designed the Parco dei Principi Hotel in Rome. Ponti and his team had already worked for this particular hotel group in Sorrento, where they created a chic seaside resort. Both the Rome and Sorrento hotels had common design elements, including walls that were stylishly clad with ceramic 'pebbles'. The hotel in Rome stands out for its distictive green and white color palette. This combination was seen both on the exterior and the interior of the structure and even extended to the furnishings used at the hotel.
