Andrea Ferolla is first-ever Artist in Residence at Hotel Eden. Observing the lifestyle and attitudes of the stylish hotel’s team, the Italian style of expressionism, and the allure of sophisticated guests enjoying the bliss… it all comes to life through his drawings.
Ferolla is an Italian creative director and illustrator celebrated for his chic, charming, timelessly romantic paintings and sketches. His unique and recognisable style is embodied in quick and sophisticated strokes, which underline the gestures, the figures and the attitude.
With his wife Daria Reina, Ferolla founded Chez Dédé, a favourite of trendsetters and connoisseurs of design – it produces accessories, plates, fabrics, bags, and scarves. Andrea Ferolla and Daria Reina are also the authors of Italian Chic, published by Assouline.
At Hotel Eden Andrea Ferolla might be found capturing the grace of the doorman in the lobby, the meticulous serving rituals at La Libreria, the impeccable uniforms of the waiters at the rooftop of Il Giardino Bar, or even the movements of Chef Fabio Ciervo in the panoramic kitchen.
As Ferolla says: “Every place has its own ‘genius loci’; its protective spirit, a combination of material and immaterial things which can convey its character and uniqueness, the feeling and atmosphere of the place, its history and its values. With him as Artist in Residence, Hotel Eden, led by MD Luca Virgilio, will once again reaffirm that this eternal hotel is committed to contemporaneity.”
