The Palazzo’s alluring history
Transformed and maintained into this fine luxury hotel in Valletta, Rosselli was first known as Casa Rosselli, a family home to a noble family. This building is rich in historical detail which is reflected in the design and architecture of the hotel. This is how it all started.
Pietro Rosselli, a reputable goldsmith, was born in Valletta in 1607. He married Alusietta Massa in 1634 and the couple had a son whose name was Maruzzo.
Pietro and his wife were respected amongst many, so much so, that they were known as outstanding philanthropists due to their generous contributions and influence. They paid for the decorations of many buildings in Valletta and these contributions led the Order of St. John to reward Rosselli with the prestigious title of Donat. He proudly displayed this title with the Mezza Croce badge pinned to his chest. The couple was also able to commission Mattia Pretti to work for them and this indicated how well established the family was.
The herons (an established symbol of the family), the initials of the couple, P.R and A.M, and the badge of the Arcikonfraternita tal-Karita have been restored and are still found on the facade of the present hotel. Rosselli – AX Privilege stands tall in Valletta with restored original features and vivid contemporary detail.
