The history
Gabriele d'Annunzio purchased the Washington property ninety years ago, in 1924, three years after becoming owner of Cargnacco. The acquisition took place in the context of the enlargement of the estate that would become the Vittoriale and that grow from the two hectares when it was bought - in 1921 - to the actual about nine hectares.

In 2003, the Vittoriale Foundation decided to renovate "Washington Hotel", turning it into a guest quarters and creating three apartments and two studios to accommodate students, who visit the archives of D'Annunzio as well as the President of the Foundation. Ten years later, in 2013, the idea emerged to create three apartments and two rooms that have their names inspired by the culture of D'Annunzio. Now, even the furniture is made in the style of D'Annunzio.
It was inaugurated on August 22, 2014 and it has taken over the old name'Washington'.

The concept

The purpose of the revision of the five apartments at the Hotel Washington in the beautiful surroundings of the Vittoriale, was to make anonymous and inappropriate spaces accessible to visitors from all over the world and to bring the public closer to the immense cultural heritage and personality of Gabriele D'Annunzio.

The study of five units, each one associated with an element, Water, Earth, Fire, Air and Time, should aim to stimulate intense feelings among visitors, first of all astonishment. Here are then the five apartments, with a totally different furniture styles, characterized, however, by the common desire to deeply impress and to stimulate the five senses: sight, touch, hearing, smell, taste. All the senses that D’Annunzio loved to exalt and exaggerate in his life experiences.
