History of Molino Stucky
Did you know Hilton Molino Stucky started life as a flour mill owned by Giovanni Stucky? Dating back to 1895, 1500 people worked at the mill, producing 50 tonnes of flour each day. Trading wheat, flour and pasta internationally, Giovanni became the richest man in Venice. Sadly, his reign ended in 1910 when he was murdered by a former employee! From 1955, the mill was left derelict before its grand opening as a luxury hotel in 2007 with many of the building's original features still on show.
