Yesterday it was the press conference at La Menagère restaurant for the opening of the new The Student Hotel in Florence. A Concept, the group is Dutch, which is much more than a hotel with rooms. It is a place where things happen, a structure to meet people and why not, to realize their projects and dreams.
The way we travel, work and study has changed in recent years. Many students of various nationalities study in Northern Europe or in Spain and many of them open start-ups and companies contributing to the development of the local economy. The Student Hotel wants to enhance its talent.
The founder and CEO, Charlie MacGregor says: “With every Student Hotel we create the best space so that guests can discover their aspirations and change the world, Florence Lavagnini has exceeded all expectations.”
The Student Hotel Lavagnini includes 20000 square meters of space, 390 rooms for different types of guests, students or travelers, or founder of companies and start-ups, restaurants, cafes, shops, coworking spaces in which to create connections and relationships and, on the roof , the pool. On the ground floor, a space for seminars and workshops. The inner courtyard has been designed as a square where people can meet to exchange profitable ideas.
Florence Lavagnini is the first of four hotels in the country; Bologna and a second hotel in Florence – Belfiore – will open in 2019, with The Student Hotel Rome plans to open its doors in 2020. Further acquisitions should be announced later this year.
7 June 2018 BedTalks and the Free Student Festival of The Student Hotel group)
It is a unique and free event, open to all, celebrating the opening of the new The Student Hotel in Florence and is the way in which the group greets and welcomes the local community.
The Festival will be the Grand Opening of the Student Hotel. The Bed Talks: The concept is not new, inspired by the 1969 bed-in by John Lennon and Yoko Ono for Peace in the World, they also talked of peace from the bed. The unique event involves more than 100 selected speakers, 100 speakers in fashion, art, sport, science, culture, politics and much more that will lie down on the bed talking to a stranger about their projects and ideas.
Wanting to describe in a simple way what the BedTalks are, we would say: “two perfect strangers talking in a bed”. So why should two people never talk, discuss or exchange opinions in a bed, perhaps in front of perfect strangers? In a bed there are no filters, we are naturally inclined to be ourselves, because the bed is the place of intimacy, the guardian of our dreams and our passions, and speakers find inspiration, passion, new ideas, partners and new friends. Hundreds of conversations take place in a hotel bed and are open to everyone.
The Bed Talks begins at 3 pm on 7 June. It is necessary to register on the site for free http://bedtalks.nl/it/florence/ Soon the calendar of the day will also be published.
There will be musical performances, workshops, artistic performances, all participate with the aim of engaging in projects that can create a better world. Food and drinks from 15 to 21.
