The old building with its labyrinthc layout and the inner courtyard immediately recall a Moroccan riad: you step into a door and a different world is unveiled.
It was born as a spinning mill next to the neighborhood old canals, then it was converted into a cloister and finally into a family dwelling. Now it has 8 rooms and a little bistrot. This mixture of inn and restaurant is it called “ locanda”, which is a beautiful and interesting expression, especially for the Italian country side that is full of wonderful but tatty building awaiting a new and sustainable life.
The word locanda trigger immediately sensations, memories and a flavour from the past.
