Interview with Vincenzo Girasoli, web influencer and founder of Idressitalian.com, the editorial project who wishes to show to the world the essence of the real Italian life style.
Is it your first visit to the Romagna region?
Yes, it’s my first time here with IdressItalian.com, but when I was young I used to come here from Puglia to go dancing with my friends: I have some great memories from that time.
How do you, as a web influencer, see our land?
The overall idea characterizes Romagna as a great place to live, and with great food to eat. I think that a tourist does not see the Romagna region as a seaside resort, but he/she chooses it for its complete offer: wellbeing, great food, professional service and a vivid night life.
If you are looking for a place where you can be certain to say “What a great vacation I’ve had, I have been truly pampered!”, you have to come here! You might not find the greatest sea in this area, but there is an excellence in filling this discrepancy with a series of excellent services that no other region in Italy is able to match.
Here you know how to take care of tourists, in true Italian style, in that is really important. The Romagna hospitality is unique; not just a business, but a true passion for the wellbeing of the guests, and finding joy in seeing them happy and satisfied, with an honest smile.
When you have: customer care, respect for your work, team work amongst the business owners in the territory (working together brings a larger good for all) … if a person arriving will immediately get the sensation of being in a working, well organized place, he is more likely to return, bringing more people with him.
Other than the hospitality, what has struck you about the Palace Hotel?
First of all, the attention to detail, although this hotel il relatively new and not an old building, you immediately recognize the Batani Family touch.
Second … there are a lot of Italians, and that makes a difference. The Hotel is made of the people who work there.
You are very attentive to beauty, but not only the exterior kind. How do you see our beauty?
The most beautiful thing in Romagna, other than the food, is the people, still genuine and real. The human resources are the biggest asset a territory can have, a land with a smile, where providing service goes beyond being a must.
I work all year round and when I come here I’m greeted with a smile – I’m in an awesome place! This is why tourists keep coming back every year.
What kind of emotion have the Romagna region left with you?
A true urge to return soon.
