Maria Meneghini Callas was a regular guest at the Grand Hotel et de Milan between 1950 and 1952, on the occasion of plays such as the Aida, I vespri Siciliani, Il ratto del Seraglio, Norma, Macbeth and Gioconda held at the Teatro Alla Scala. She and Meneghini, her first husband, could argue for hours at the reception in front of their open security box over the choice of the jewels to wear. On February 1953 she moved to her new villa in Milan, but she returned to the Grand Hotel et de Milan to meet Luchino Visconti, another frequent customer of the hotel for the plays of the Traviata in 1955.
