When fashion creative directors Daria Reina and Andrea Ferolla launched Chez Dédé, their gloriously chic concept store in the Regola district of historic Rome, it was an instant sensation – enough to catch the eye of Lorenzo Lisi, the owner of perennially packed seafood institution Pierluigi on the Piazza de’ Ricci, just a stone’s throw away. He enlisted Reina and Ferolla’s talents, as a stylist and fashion illustrator respectively, in the creation of Hotel De’ Ricci (hoteldericci.com; from €350), an eight-suite palazzo on a narrow lane just off Via Giulia, with just about every piece of furniture, art and textile – including the handpainted wallpaper – the work of team Chez Dédé. The killer cocktail bar and 1,500-bottle cellar, however, are Lisi’s doing: this little gem is serious about its wine, with a general manager who’s a seasoned sommelier and customised selections waiting in your suite upon check-in.
