Andrà tutto bene

Everything will be ok!

Dear Guests,

I am writing to you from home, where I have been staying for a few weeks, to respect the restrictions due to the application of the legislation relating to Covid-19, Coronavirus.

The situation in Italy is improving day by day, we are recording fewer infections despite the fact that Italy is one of the countries that has suffered and that is suffering the most from this dramatic situation, which has involved, or better, unsettled our souls and our lives.

Many questions now are filling my mind, from when we can restart, to what regulations we will have to comply, to whether this emergency will have changed our way of thinking and therefore of traveling.

The hypotheses that I imagine are the most varied but I am sure that when we can travel, we will know we can do it safely and I hope from the bottom of my heart that we will want to do it in a sustainable way, perhaps using public transport and trains, perhaps preferring structures that apply procedures to support the environment, perhaps discovering obsolete places, going deeper into knowledge through longer stays, going to live the cities and then staying in castles or tower houses like our beloved Antica Torre Tornabuoni; so that the travel experience can pass through the places that have made history and that provide uniqueness by enhancing the content of travel.

I hope that in the future of travelling there will be room for “human capital”, that is, for all those who work behind the scenes to make the stay of each one of you an “unforgettable moment of your lives”, which is why we have collected a message of hope from each one of them, because when we can finally open our doors, our smiles will be full of joy and we will be enthusiastic.

We will be waiting for you with open arms,

See you soon,

Maria Rita Bellini.

    CIAO, Maria Rita and the entire team at our beloved Antica Torre!
    I think of you every day and was quite emotional to see this video. We are safe and have taken our agency home, after 23 years in the office. We are all in this together and can not wait until we can send you our clients again. And, of course, we are way overdue to come to see you ourselves!!
    Baci tutti,

    Cara Signora Bellini e Personale dell’Antica Torre,

    Grazie mille per il video bellissimo! Pensiamo spesso delle visite passate al albergo. Ogni due anni andiamo all’Antica Torre e quest’anno dovrebbe essere l’anno del nostro soggiorno ma siamo molto triste che non è possibile. Fino al momento in cui possiamo ritornare l’anno prossimo, mandiamo a tutti i nostri migliori auguri per la vostra buona salute!
    A presto!

    How wonderful to see your smiling faces ~ we have been so concerned about you! We can’t wait to come back to Firenze and stay in “our room” at Antica Torre. In the meantime, we are enjoying your wonderful newsletters and the “Zoom” lectures from the British Institute.

    Special regards to Maria Rita, Martina, and Mika (also to Denise and Dandy) . . . looking forward to seeing you again and to meeting everyone else on our return!


    Best wishes from Charleston, South Carolina,
    Connie and Gil Baldwin

    It’s so great to see you in the video! We were worried about you.
    Tokyo is also under the state of emergency and we need to stay home.
    We really hope everything will be fine soon and we can go back to you, nice people in our favorite beautiful country.
    Please stay safe and see you soon!

    Andra tutto bene!
