The history of the hotel between chalk and alabaster.

The bond between alabaster and this community is rooted at the very origin of the city. The Etruscans preferred lands and materials suitable for their Necropolis, therefore they chose Volterra for its alabaster fields.

Volterra's alabaster is known throughout worldwide as the most precious and pure in Europe, and its formation dates back to some 7 million years ago.

The Bessi family, owner of the hotel, owes a piece of its history to the alabaster. Cav. Giuseppe Bessi is an illustrious ancestor: an important student of the Florentine School of Art. Known as "The Master", he devoted his talent to alabaster sculptures, leaving behind a production of beautiful female busts.
