Our history

Immerse yourself in the charm of a period mansion among the trulli of Alberobello

Enter the heart of the city and discover the pleasure of sleeping in a period mansion in the historic centre, with the atmosphere of the past and the comforts of the present.

Historical background

By the end of the 18th century, the building industry in Alberobello had already begun to revitalise, thanks to locals’ determined efforts to improve their living conditions

This is evidenced by numerous notarial deeds from the period, transactions, trades, and transfers of ownership

A decisive contributor to this fervour was the town’s urban reorganisation, carried out by architect Antonio Curri (a native of Alberobello, to whom such works as the Galleria Umberto I and the Gran Caffè Gambrinus in Naples can be attributed), bringing nineteenth-century neoclassical tastes to the city.

From Palazzo Rotolo to Palazzo Scotto

It is thought that the Rotolo family built the Palazzo between the first and second half of the nineteenth century, keeping it until the early 2000s.

Made entirely from local limestone, using techniques similar to those used in the construction of trulli, the Palazzo was built along the nineteenth century axis, positioned longitudinally with respect to the main Basilica.

The Rotolo family inhabited the Palazzo in the first years following its construction, later abandoning it when the dissolution of the provincial nobility sparked an exodus to cultural centres such as Naples or Rome.

After this, the building was first used by the Carabinieri corps (a photograph clearly shows the Carabinieri emblem above the entrance door). After this, it was used as a branch/private accommodation by Alberobello’s Fascists.

At the end of the war the building returned to the ownership of the Rotolo family who, by now living permanently in Rome, used it sporadically as a holiday home, resulting in the neglect that characterised the past 40 years.

Thanks to radical interventions lasting roughly 8 years, we have succeeded in completely restoring the property’s charm, marrying it with the best modern comforts to meet today’s hospitality needs.
