Sala Malatesta

This room in the restaurant is named after the Malatesta of Rimini, formerly lords of Pennabilli and Verrucchio. A set of vaults and arches harmoniously enliven the small salon. Sighs of light seep through the ‘bocche di lupo’ (window wells) that adorn the top of the ceiling. Lower down rest the “Vecchio Autunno” stove (Old Autumn) and “Ricordi Perduti” stove (Lost Memories). The imprint left by the Malatesta family is profound. Started by Malatesta II, the ‘Mastin Vecchio’ as called by Dante, in the second half of the thirteenth century, the hegemony of the dynasty was perpetuated uninterruptedly until the beginning of the sixteenth century.
