Ideally situated in the heart of Milan’s fashion district, Four Seasons Hotel Milano has long been and continues to be the city’s favourite holiday destination, for Milanese and tourists alike. Every year people flock to the Hotel, not only to admire the extraordinary decorations conceived by artistic director Vincenzo Dascanio, but also to enjoy the sweet surprises by Pastry Chef Daniele Bonzi and indulge in Chef Fabrizio Borraccino’s excellent culinary creations.
The Enchanted Forest
Renowned for this exceptional floral creations and unexpected decorations, Vincenzo Dascanio has done his magic once again. This season’s decorative leitmotif is the “Enchanted Forest.” Dascanio has with this theme a contemporary twist to mirror the recent renovation of the Hotel’s common spaces by Patricia Urquiola. The resulting holiday wonderland is both sophisticated and inspiring. In the lobby and bar, aisles of sculptural trees decked with holly berries and thousands of glittering lights adorn the space. While in the Camino (the Hotel’s beloved fireplace room), the décor takes an even more modern turn. The trees of our magical forest become more abstract, with icy glass trunks and boxwood topiaries punctuated by an abundance of little lights. Dark green moss and festive lighting cover the walls, underlining the period features of this historic space.
The Panettone Trolley
For the second year in a row, Pastry Chef Daniele Bonzi proposes his artisanal interpretation of panettone, Italy’s famous Christmas cake. The novelty this year is the Panettone Trolley, a festive cart positioned outside the Hotel from which guests will be able to purchase the delectable creation starting on December 1, 2021. Talented Pastry Chef Daniele Bonzi and his team have perfected their recipe of the celebrated traditional cake, which involves more than 36 hours of preparation and the finest ingredients available including a rich Grand Cru vanilla from Tahiti, acacia honey, and Italian candied fruits and raisins.
Panettone is available for purchase on site for EUR 55
