Building la dolce vita
About tradition and inspiration
Built from the ruins of an abandoned Tuscan village, the hilltop Monteverdi hotel is unique – a place where history and modernity fuse
When you first lay eyes on it, it is immediately clear that the Monteverdi is not really a hotel. Not in the traditional sense, at least.

"We want to be more than just a place for our guests to stay," explains hotel manager Massimo Romagnoli. "We want to offer them a unique experience." And this begins with the rooms: interior designer Ilaria Miani was inspired by the nature, history and culture of the region in her designs, and, with the help of her team, brought the former ruins into the 21st century in style. The entire history of the village is concealed in every little detail behind the medieval facades. In the colours of a table, for example, that are based on the crest of a nearby monastery. Or in a bed inspired by an old fresco. "Everything new was already there at some point. You just need to look closely," she explains.

Because if you live it with a real passion, it suddenly becomes very modern," she adds. Based on this knowledge, quotations and tributes are visible in every corner.
