101 years of history and passionon
The Colomba d’Oro Hotel is celebrating a century and a year of management by the Tapparini family this year. The hotel actually has an even older history, having opened back as far as 1837, before northern Italy’s independence from Austria, before the American Civil War, and before Charles Darwin published “The Origin of Species” ; but it was in 1920 that the Tapparini family bought it. This is therefore a story that begins more than a century ago and reaches today, told day after day in the guest book where the signatures of numerous esteemed guests are recognized: princesses, opera divas, heads of state, writers and poets . Ennio Morricone, Primo Carnera, Toti Dal Monte, Beniamino Gigli, Trilussa, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti and the royals of the House of Savoy… but in more recent times also rock stars like Patty Smith and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
For four generations, attention to detail and quality of services have been at the center of everything for us. If today on our breakfast buffet the orange juice is real freshly squeezed Sicilian orange juice, it is the coffee made with the selected blend of a prestigious local roaster, this is also due to the fact that in the 1930s Carlo Tapparini, after working in Monte Carlo with the great Auguste Escoffier (“The king of chefs and the chef of kings”), brought the new haute cuisine to the Colomba d’Oro. This means having a story: excellence has deep roots.
