Francis Ford Coppola: Pater Familias - Oct 26, 2012
"Coppola history comes to life in this candid portrait of Francis Ford by Alison Chernick, filmed at the Hollywood don's newest hotel, Palazzo Margherita, while he was vacationing with his aunt Almerinda and his 95-year-old uncle Anton."
Sneak Peek: Palazzo Margherita, Bernalda, Italy - Mar 19, 2012
"A remodeled 120-year-old palazzo is now an intimate nine-room resort, the Palazzo Margherita, which opened March 1 in the Southern Italian town of Bernalda. The hotel is decorated with hand-painted fresco ceilings and marble floors dating to the 1800s and restored to their original luster, while furniture pieces by French designer Jacques Grange offer bits of Moroccan and Baroque flair."
"Located in the lively working town of Bernalda, in Southern Italy, the palazzo is the fifth and most luxurious in a collection of hotels owned by Francis Ford Coppola. It represents a homecoming, of sorts, for the multifaceted filmmaker, whose grandfather immigrated to America from there in 1904."
