Amerigo Dainelli
Amerigo Dainelli

In 1888, the future founder of our house, Amerigo Dainelli, left for South America, together with his wife Laura, in search of a good job. He embarked at Livorno and to pay for the voyage he worked as a cook and waiter. After many days at sea, they arrived at Montevideo in Uruguay where they continued in their professions. During the two years of their stay in that country, not foreseeing any improvement in their future, they decided to return to Italy with their savings, planning to build a house and create employment for themselves.

Amerigo and Laura embarked once again, this time as a family of three since in the meantime the first of their seven children had been born. Upon arrival in Italy, they sought help from a friend because they had not been able to save enough to accomplish their project which was to build an inn and stables where they would be able to house the horses that needed to be provisioned for the hard climb towards Florence to which, in those times, the greater part of the rural production of the area was destined. This included wood, charcoal, olive oil and the famous Chianti wine.

One of their sons, with his wife Lola, followed in the footsteps of his father running the business. They had two daughters, Iolanda and Fiorella. When Lola passed away, Iolanda took over to help her father. Iolanda married Armando and had two sons, Amerigo and David. David, together with his mother Iolanda, his wife Cristina and children Valentina and Gabriele continue run this well-established business which since 1890 has provided refreshment and repose to travellers and tourists.
