The love stories between the walls of Palazzo Avino

In the late 1950s, Palazzo Avino – once known as Palazzo Sasso – welcomed Eduardo De Filippo (1900-1984). The great Neapolitan playwright, director and actor was in Ravello while writing “Saturday, Sunday and Monday”, the story of a small family crisis that explodes into a dramatic weekend, only to resolve at the beginning of the following week.

A few years earlier, the hotel (Hotel Palumbo, at the time) had checked in two other famous guests, Humphrey Bogart and Gina Lollobrigida, while they were filming “Beat the Devil”, a romantic-gangster movie with an adventurous couple exchange and light happy ending.

Ingrid Bergman and Roberto Rossellini also spent a few days at this luxurious hotel at the time of their scandalous affair.

Since 1997, the splendid structure – dating back to the 12th century – has been managed and directed by Mariella Avino. Avino knows and loves its every detail and is proud of the palace, of its breathtaking view, and of every love story – real or imaginary – that has ever blossomed between these walls.
