Hotel Colombina is named after the famous female mask from the Venetian Commedia dell'Arte. She is an intelligent, fearless and cunning woman, who does not allow herself to be overwhelmed by the intrigues and trickery of history.
Her figure is intertwined with that of Pantalone, a rich merchant who yearns to conquer her. Against the prejudices of the time, Colombina is attracted to the young and cheerful servant Harlequin.
In an 18th-century historical context, Colombina defies the conventions of her time and becomes the symbol of female emancipation.
Her sweet manners and helpfulness make her an esteemed and much-loved character.
Hotel Colombina is inspired by this sweet and helpful figure to provide an authentic experience of Venice and its history.
