In 1927, the year the Principe opened its doors as the Principe e Savoia, Milan had already begun building its reputation as Italy’s business centre. So the hotel’s location in what was then a nondescript plaza called Piazza Fiume, far north of what was considered the heart of Milan, was less illogical than it first appeared. Although staunch traditionalists among the Milanese believed that everything that really mattered in the city had to be located between Piazza del Duomo and Piazza della Scala, the fact that the plaza - then as now - overlooked the 19th-century-style facade of the city’s central railway station, Stazione Centrale, made it logistically convenient for the burgeoning business tycoons of the era (more under HISTORY).
