The historic 1918 residence of Prada Rong Zhai, located in the heart of Shanghai, was inaugurated on October 12, 2017. The building is a flexible space dedicated to various cultural activities organized by the Prada Group in China.
Demonstrating Miuccia Prada and Patrizio Bertelli’s respect and admiration for Chinese cultural heritage, in 2011 Prada has initiated the restoration project of the residence, which lasted 6 years and required the utmost care for details, superb craftsmanship and respect for architectural essence.
The operation combines and summarizes the capabilities developed by Prada in the requalification of historic buildings around the world, including the restorations of parts of Milan’s Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, and Ca’ Corner della Regina, the magnificent baroque palace overlooking Venice Grand Canal converted into a space dedicated to art.
