“Christmas is coming, the holiday that more than any other celebrates the pleasure of being together. This is why I wish to thank all our guests for the special moments we have shared.” Franco Vanetti, General Manager of the Duetorrihotels Group, invites readers of the blog to see out 2022 by thinking back to their favourite moments at the Grand Hotel Majestic “già Baglioni in Bologna. “We’ve come a long way together. For all of us, the year that is coming to an end has marked a return to proper social relations following the pandemic hiatus. We’ve now been able to recover regular rhythms and habits, offering a warm welcome to all those who have stayed with us, whether for a dinner or a holiday.
“Of the many targets achieved in 2022, I’d like to recall one that is by its very nature unrepeatable: the hotel’s 110th anniversary. We celebrated the occasion with you, with a series of events organised to tell the story of the palazzo that houses the hotel, a historical symbol of Bologna and a ‘home from home’ in the city for celebrities passing through. We rounded things off with a Christmassy touch: a party in the style of the first decade of the last century with extras in period costumes and special background music conducted by Maestro Stefano Giaroli. With this memory as my inspiration, I wish you a 2023 filled with great satisfactions, to be shared by you all.”
