I Sofà di Via Giulia, ristorante del St. George Hotel di Roma, nasce da un progetto di ristrutturazione di quello che fino al 2007 era il Palazzo dei tribunali di Via Giulia. Era stato commissionato nel 1508 da Papa Giulio II al Bramante ma non era mai stato portato a termine. L’Arch. Lorenzo Bellni ha firmato il progetto di ristrutturazione del palazzo ed ha elaborato l’architettura degli interni.
I Sofà di Via Giulia, the restaurant in St.George Hotel, Rome, is a reconstruction project of the building which was originally known until 2007, as the “Palazzo dei Tribunali” on Giulia Street. Architect Bramante, was commissioned by Pope Julius II in 1508 to build it, but it was never completed. The whole renovation project of the Palace, on both the interior and exterior design, was then carried out by Architect Lorenzo Bellini.
Travertine paving and wall slabs, perfectly combine the mud color, which emphasize the shape of the sixteenth-century composition as well as some archeological elements that are skillfully brought to light.
The lounge bar walls, in contrast with the big skylight, are covered with an oak wooden boiserie.
Most of the furniture, like the armchairs Gina and Carlos by SchönhuberFranchi, were designed by Architect Lorenzo Bellini, and produced by different companies.
Leather sofas and armchairs are produced by Italpoltrone, while several interior design items were produced by Selva.
