It is a particular type of accommodation company born from the brilliant intuition of the university professor Giancarlo Dall'Ara, today president of the National Association of Diffused Hotels (ADI). Specifically, this idea consists in the creation of a horizontal hotel made up of several buildings close to each other offering tourist services.
