We are talking about Panzano, a working-class district that developed from the early 1900s thanks to the shipyard Cantiere Navale Triestino (now Fincantieri). An autonomous village including houses, a theater (later bombed during the Second World War), a church, shops and services. The project is managed by the engineer Dante Fornasir.
In the residential part of the district (Panzano Ville) has been located the Albergo Impiegati. The historic building was created to host the unmarried employee.
Designed in an eclectic style (eclectic architecture born from the revival and mixing of different architectural movements), with 120 rooms with private bathroom (a luxury in the past), hobby areas (such as a billiard room), library, 2 restaurants and bars.
Since 2009, thanks to an impressive conservative renovation, it is possible to live the experience of that time: the former Albergo Impiegati becomes Europalace Hotel, Bw Signature Collection, led by Urban Homy.
40 rooms and common areas where you can admire ornaments, Art Nouveau railings and original decorations. There are also reproductions of the works of the Trieste painter Vito Timmel. The 13 original paintings, representing allegories and saved from the bombing of the Euripides Theater, are now part of the MuCa (Museum of Shipbuilding) collection, a few steps from the Europalace Hotel, Bw Signature Collection.
We also offer a scenographic conference room, a bar-bistro, a modern gym, bicycle rental and a large parking lot.
The Europalace Hotel, Bw Signature Collection in Monfalcone is part of the "Places of the Heart" path of the FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano), as an example of architectural heritage belonging to industrial archeology.
A stay full of atmosphere, between art, culture and history.
