It was the long-ago spring of 1947 when this object so common to any hotel in the world made an unusual entrance to the Hotel Gorizia. Battered, worn, abandoned at the door of a classic Venetian bàcaro and...used as a soccer ball! In this way, “la valigia” made its entry to the Calle dei Fabbri, kicked in by some artists who enjoyed themselves by “escorting it” to its final home. Viewed with surprise by those attending the symposium, it was almost immediately subjected to special treatment: each artist present decorated it with an original work.
In twenty-seven episodes, self-portraits, still lifes, landscapes, and objects that are today the value added of the suitcase, kept and beautifully exhibited at the Hotel Gorizia. Cherubini, Carena, Pomi, Novati and Scibezzi are only some of the names that left an important trace of their talents on the soft walls.
This charming episode was the premise for the birth of L’Ordine degli Amici della Valigia (The Order of the Friends of the Suitcase), a symbolic Last Supper of Venetian artists noted in art magazines around the world. Today, the suitcase is admired as an example of the contemporary Venetian painting, is the soul of our hotel.
And the soul, it is well known, is priceless.
