Tamara de Lempicka - Junior Suite n.405
Born in a prosperous family, the beautiful and uninhibited Polish painter met Gabriele D'Annunzio in 1925. The poet indeed, considered among the major representatives of the literature of the 20th century, was a incurable ladies’ man and many letters, written on the hotel letterhead, testify a close and intimate relationship between Tamara and Gabriele. During her Italian stays, Tamara was divided between the Vittoriale (D'Annunzio's residence in Desenzano) and the Grand Hotel et de Milan, his Milanese house, where she was hosted by D'Annunzio himself. Several items related to the Grand Hotel have been found at the Vittoriale, among which various copies of D'Annunzio's guests bills at the Grand Hotel, reporting also the name of Eleonora Duse.
