Molino Stucky_ Venice

Hilton Molino Stucky Venice Hotel
I had never seen this building before that night. Getting lost in Venice, at times, it becomes fun.

Molino Stucky, was built in 1895 by Giovanni Stucky, entrepreneur and financier of noble Swiss family, whose father had moved in the Veneto by marrying an Italian family Forti. The design of the imposing building was entrusted to architect
Ernst Wullekopf, who created one of the greatest examples of Gothic Revival architecture applied to an industrial building.


The original idea of establishing a mill in the Venetian lagoon to John Stucky was the mid-nineteenth century following the study of the functioning of several mills in foreign countries. Based on these studies, the entrepreneur decided to leverage the Venetian canal for fast water transport of grain to be allocated to the mill on the island of Giudecca.
