HISTORY AND TRADITION SINCE THE END OF THE 19TH CENTURY
THE STORY OF HOTEL BONAPACE IN MADONNA DI CAMPIGLIO … FROM THE END OF THE 19TH CENTURY TO TODAY
Our hotel adventure began with great-great-great-great Antonio Bonapace, manager of the post office of Madonna di Campiglio, who decided to build an inn a day ago. At that time tourism was only summer and the hotels in the country were few. An important fact happened at the end of the eighteenth century: the first carriageway that united Pinzolo with Madonna di Campiglio was built. Antonio saw in this work an opportunity to create a wine and beer trade for passers-by. Travelers could shelter their horse in the small stable inside the same building and take a break to refresh their throat and spirit.
As time went on, the new businessman was nicknamed “bozet”, or bottle in the pinzolero dialect, to indicate the oste work. So in 1932 the inn grew to become the “holiday home” Bonapace, a small guesthouse that can accommodate tourists for the night as well.
On an inscription of a poster that advertised the board, it could be read “a dust-free hotel”, which was then considered to be boasted for those who wanted to be hospitalized. Since then, the activity has been handed down from father to son and still today the hotel is run by our family.
