Ilaria Miani and Michael C. Cioffi had a vision to restore the village and to introduce culinary innovations such as their restaurant Oreade and their Enoteca (wine shop) while bringing about a cultural Renaissance to the area. They designed Monteverdi to be a place where people could come to explore a new culture, indulge their curiosity and to engage with others all the while keeping the comforts of a magical Italian Villa. The project was guided by a strict avoidance of folkloristic restoration techniques, in not wanting to turn the village into a tourist cliché. You can book Hotel Monteverdi here!!!!
