About this listing
Who we are:
La Casetta dell’Artista is so much more than a Bed & Breakfast.
It’s an art studio and a creative shelter in the heart of Bologna, designed and created by the artist Giulia Sollai and the woodworker Francesco Usenato for everyone who loves to be surrounded by the beauty of a place in constant evolution, just like the ideas of its creators!
La Casetta and their artists believe in an approach to hospitality modeled after a deep respect of people and nature.
All the pieces of furniture inside of the house are either unique pieces made of recyclable materials or reemployed furniture personally renovated by Giulia and Francesco.
From design objects to the artwork displayed throughout the house, every detail has a story of its own and it’s eager to tell it.
Every element is an invitation to take a break and mindfully observe, explore and enjoy a new chapter of your travel while staying at La Casetta.
Our hosts will find that we pay specific attention to nature and simplicity when they’ll enjoy our breakfast, since it is prepared every morning using selected ingredients (also organic ones) for all tastes and dietary needs.
What we do:
La Casetta dell’Artista takes place in via Cesare Battisti, in the old city center of Bologna, to host travellers and be their point of departure towards exciting and stimulating experencies.
Since 2014 it has been making Bologna’s cultural life even more vibrant by hosting house concerts and storytelling shows, personal and collective art exhibitions of painting and illustration; showcasing brand new editorial projects; supporting and collaborating with many of the city’s festivals and creative events and much more.
