This renovation project was started from my anger, despair and disappointment of years of financial insecurity, but the ideas of making it tangible stem from the friendship, solidarity and love. Most importantly it was driven by the desire to not give up and the respect to the planet and the rules of the society in which we live.
A set of conditions have freed my mind simultaneously, and then, as if by magic, all threads of ideas I was talking about for quite some time, began to crystalize. Little by little until it became a reality that surpasses all my initial imagination.
I want to start giving life to this space. I want to make it not only a place that people stop by but an inspiration. I hope it is like a root that struggles its way to the earth, and becomes stronger and stronger. I hope the realization of this hotel can encourage all the others who decided to undertake this path.
UpTown B’n’B didn’t become a reality through any public funding, but a network of friends, relatives and acquaintances that we have here in Bergamo. So I’d like to give huge thanks to all the people who, in one way or another, contributed to the realization of this hotel. I know I might have made some mistakes in the list of names below, I apologize in advance to anyone who is not mentioned:
