Research by the Chamber of Commerce has certified that hospitality has been the building's business for over one hundred years.

Come and get to know us. Experience a piece of history in our wonderful city!

Hotel Commercianti is on Via De' Pignattari, a quiet street flanking the Basilica di San Petronio, in the heart of the city and a fully pedestrian only area. It's difficult to imagine now but our narrow street was once one of the city's most important. Built on the route of the Roman decumanus (some of which is still visible) it was a bustling and wealthy street whose primary activities included salt trading, customs and lastly terracotta making - pignattari. The building became a hotel only at the turn of the twentieth century but its origins are as an early 11th century tower house when it was made town hall. While S. Petronio was being built, Via de' Pignattari's importance diminished and, as a result of the non completion of work on the church, all that remains of the former quarter is now our building.

Many traces of the great many activities, which have succeeded one another over the centuries in this historic corner of Bologna, have been uncovered over the course of the hotel's frequent renovation work. Pot fragments tell of the modest lifestyle of Etruscan Felsina, the geometric friezes and a high relief of a mythological animal are echoes of the riches of Roman Bononia, the nails and iron together with terracotta statuettes and pot fragments are traces of the medieval craftsmanship of a farrier and a terracotta artisan. The building's structure also tells much of its past. The remains of the historic well which supplied its inhabitants with water is in the breakfast room, frescoes in the Torre suite made with the original 'segno del chiodo' technique have survived to testify to the luxuries of wealthy but long forgotten families. Wooden structures blackened by a historic fire tell of the dangers of fire, ever present in the Middle Ages.

All this is confirmed by two plaques situated to one side of the hotel's entrance. Our building has, in fact, been declared a 'historic building', former 'town hall' (1116-1202 AD) and was later seat of the Brentatori (1250 AD) but other illustrious people stayed in the building including Roman law scholars studying at Bologna University who had their studies here and to whom we have dedicated one of our suites, the Glossatori room.

Брентаторе заслуживает отдельного упоминания как историческая фигура Болоньи, которая выполняла многие и важные роли в средневековом городе: винодел и оценщик, папский сборщик обязанностей, пожарный. Брента была контейнером для перевозки вина, но брентори были не просто винными носителями. Городской совет уполномочил их попробовать вина, оценить их стоимость и собрать соответствующие пошлины на основе качества. Чтобы принять участие в этой группе «хороших и здоровых специалистов по питью», брентатори пришлось пройти сложный технический и практический экзамен и быть физически крепким, как брента, наполненная вином и виноградом, весом более 50 кг. В своих путешествиях между деревней и городом они приносили не только вино и виноград, но и новости, и это давало им важную социальную функцию. Брентатори также были пожарными, перевозившими воду, необходимую для тушения множества пожаров, которые вспыхивали в домах, которые в то время были, как правило, из дерева.
