— San Lorenzo used to be a hunting lodge of local noblemen. Please tell us a bit about the history of the property.
After that, it passed through other important families but was always used as a vacation home. Only at the beginning of the 20th century was it used as a farmhouse. We discovered it after five years of searching for the perfect property.”

— You and your wife used to work in the fashion industry. What inspired you to completely change your life?
We had a lot of problems to solve, but we also had a lot of enthusiasm. We expected moving the children to the middle of nowhere to be the most problematic part, but they are actually very happy to live here at San Lorenzo. And we are as well.”

— San Lorenzo Mountain Lodge was restored with a lot of attention to detail and respect for local traditions. How would you describe its style?
The interior design was mostly done by my wife, Giorgia. She traveled all around Europe to discover special things and ideas and mixed the tradition of the old house with some little pieces of modernity. In the end, we reached something that was a sort of silent luxury, meaning you realize it’s luxurious, but it’s not obvious or ostentatious. They are things that you can only discover while living in the house, not from pictures.”
— How would you describe the philosophy of San Lorenzo Mountain Lodge?
Our vacation guests usually have a lot of activities planned but when they arrive at the lodge, they completely change their minds. Guests just relax. And that’s the goal!”

— Please tell us a bit about the facilities at San Lorenzo Mountain Lodge.
Besides the bedrooms, we offer a lot of different living areas. We are in the mountains and need places people can enjoy when the weather isn’t good. For example, we have a TV room which is good for families, as parents can let their children watch TV while they converse with friends.”
