Hotel San Guido Porta Volta was built in 1909 and was then called Hotel Volta. In a hundred years of Milan's history, it has become a landmark of the area.
Since it has always belonged to the same family who handed it down from generation to generation, it can rightly be considered a family business.
According to the new project of Porta Volta recently approved, the building of Feltrinelli will be coupled by a symmetrical but smaller construction that will house the historical Museum of the Resistance. The project also includes a green area of trees along the ancient Spanish walls. In the summer 2020 Porta Volta will also house the new Design Museum.

Via Paolo Sarpi, one of the oldest Chinese districts in Europe, today a showcase in which to discover the best of modern Chinese culture, its gastronomy and its technological or artisan knowledge, is part of an urban context in which new poles continue to arise. cultural, design or fashion.

Furthermore, the Resistance Museum is already under construction.
The neighborhood is also one of the greenest in Milan, just a few minutes from the hotel is the Biblioteca degli Alberi, a futuristic park full of wildflowers and trees, between the skyscrapers of Porta Nuova and the historic Parco Sempione.
