HTL-DIANA---1960

For someone .. might seems just an old photos , but … I can’t  stop the curiosity to fantasize about distant times,  when I lived those stories through the words of those who were there …

At that time there was probably a poor life … would say … but how can we say that?

HTL-DIANA---1955

I like to imagine what could be the thoughts of my Grandma Maria, Grandpa’s Primo, what dreams floated in the mind of the girl who one day would become my mother …

Every time, flipping through these pictures, I get lost in the idea of the smell of pine trees in Igea Marina … I guess the rhythms that marked the daily life of the people , the atmosphere of peace and tranquility that probably reigned supreme in this small town …

Igea Marina was emerging from the green most pristine and wild … in front of the sea …

It ‘ a fascinating  journey ,  image to be with the fantasy  a guest at the time and  think, in the morning, to open  the shutters of the house letting in the fresh air and the unique light of the early morning …

These images tell the genesis of our home … ” Diana ” of the ’50s,  it was little more than  a house … there was only the first floor , and probably only a few rooms for the first time guests …

The top image shows a postcard  dated 06/08/1960 , portrays  ” Diana” in its evolution , the name has been changed ( from Home to Hotel)  the structure itself has been restored of several works such as the construction of the second floor and the enlargement of the ground floor to accommodate a larger dining room … in Igea Marina tourism had begun  its development most fervent !

Good trip to eveybody …
