Cent’anni da Principe – (A Century at the Principe)

The Grand Hotel Principe di Piemonte is celebrating its 100th anniversary and the publication, “Cent’anni da Principe”, marks the centenary of one of the best-known landmarks in Viareggio.

Compiled by the writer Manila Alfano, with contributions from Vittorio Sgarbi, Marco Turinetto, Umberto Guidi and Roberto Perrone, published by Forma Edizioni;  the book recounts the hotel’s history, from its origins in the grandeur of the Belle Époque to the present day.

“Cent’anni da Principe” is a meticulous chronicle of this evolution from the earliest plans inspired by the hotels of the Cote d’Azur and and illustrates, with postcards of the day, how the hotel has changed over the decades to achieve today’s five-star luxury status.

A journey denoting not only a great heritage but also the constant quest for innovation and pursuit of excellence.

Detailed descriptions accompanied by numerous historical documents, including personal accounts, dedications from musicians, actors and sportsmen, period photographs, anecdotes and newspaper articles, recount the history of the Grand Hotel Principe di Piemonte and its rise to national and international acclaim.

One of the chapters explores the relationship between the big screen and the hotel, which has seen the greatest cinema stars check-in as guests as well as its transformation into the film set for the 1960s Italian seaside comedy “Frenesia dell’estate”, when the Principe di Piemonte played a central role.

Menus drawn from the archives, international awards, twelve years of acclaimed Kosher cuisine and two Michelin stars document the Principe di Piemonte’s hallmark of culinary expertise and creativity.
