Since 1850 our family has been handing down the art of Hospitality and foodservice from father to son. In any of our hotels and restaurants in Norcia the “Spirit of Service” has been our philosophy for 150 years. The “ Spirit of Service” reflects the genuine wish of this family to invest resources, time and energy in making the difference in other people’s life. During these years we have been supporting projects such as the development of the monastery and of the Benedictine monks community; the activities of some local cooperatives that employ disabled youths and with the help of some no-profit partners we are contributing to projects aimed at the improvement of health and infant schools in other countries. We feel we have a role in our community and we want to do our job happily, proud of being able to contribute to make the world better together with You.
