Editorial Reviews

Review

“Fortunately, the magic of this place has been captured in a new book, Hotel Il Pellicano… The book is not only a family album but also a historical document of seaside leisure during three decades of the late 20th century.” ~Vanity Fair
 
“Now a new book from Rizzoli offers a rich photographic chronicle of the property’s almost five decade history. Hotel Il Pellicano divides the hotel s history into three periods John Swope s images document the hotel’s early days from 1964 to 1971 and include an amazing picture of Patsy lazing in the grass with a perfect vintage Fiat behind her and an excavator in the background. Slim Aarons who returned to the hotel every year for 25 years captures Il Pellicano’s heyday from 1967 to the early 1990s. Finally Juergen Teller presents the hotel in its current incarnation with a series of portraits of perfectly turned out guests. (Frida Giannini the designer of Gucci is the kind of regular the place attracts now). Collectively the images capture how the glamour of travel has changed but also remains very much the same which could be said of Il Pellicano itself.” ~Town & Country
 
“If April showers have you feeling under the weather, book an escape to the Tuscan coastal village Porto Ercole through the pages of Hotel Il Pellicano.” ~Metrosource LA
 
“Effortlessly Chic...” ~Thedaily.com

There is no disputing that this beautiful little jewel of a hotel , Il Pellicano ,is the very definition of "la dolce vita" but unfortunately the Rizzoli book is just a tease, and an expensive one at that.
Most of the photographs are of poor quality, there are a few interesting photos that bring you back to the 1960's and 70's but the last 1/3 of the book is just awful, boring
photos of the owners daughter and her friends unrelated to the beautiful hotel, gardens and lifestyle that one would purchase this book to get a glimpse of. The poor quality is not worthy of the Rizzoli brand.

Amazing book - really a snap shot of a tremendous "little" hotel and the amazing people who frequented it in the 60's and 70's. A collector's item and a nice slice of (the privileged) life
