“Casa Madre” is the historic and oldest building of the resort dating back to the early 1900's, when Milano Marittima was being built by the will of illustrious aristocrats from Milan who chose this stretch of Adriatic coast to turn it into an exclusive seaside village.
The Mother House (“Casa Madre”) is the symbol of those years, the successful expression of a desire for well-being, growth and worldliness. Inspired by the ideals of the "garden city" of the painter Palanti, it was built according to the principles that guided the construction of the time, described in an interview of 1911 by Palanti himself: “Each villa has to be surrounded by the natural pine forest, provided with fresh drinking water and with a direct route to the sea". For this reason, Casa Madre is a building deliberately not enormous, but "alive and perfect, both in terms of comfort and aesthetics. The architecture is gracious, surrounded by the dark green of the pine trees, with the sea in the background."
Even today, the Casa Madre exudes the irresistible charm of those years, between classic style and timeless elegance.
