Grand Hotel Et Des Palmes – The story of Baron Giuseppe Di Stefano

0
Baron Giuseppe di Stefano's life was so crazy it was like the plot of a film. His existence was quite ordinary until the spring of 1946, when the baron killed a young boy for having entered his lands. But the boy was linked to a powerful Mafia family and the Baron was faced with a choice: disappear or die. So he chose to retire to the Grand Hotel et des Palmes in Palermo, in suite 204, where he gave himself up to the good life, organising parties, musical evenings and inviting artists, singers and nobles to the hotel, to whom he served magnificent dinners. His was an unconventional 'hermitage', which ended in 1988, when he died. It was only then that he was able to leave, greeted by the entire hotel staff, who were exceptionally lined up for him.
