Bettoja Hotels Announces New Director General Ciro Verrocchi
Experienced executive, formerly of IGH and Starwood, to oversee upcoming renovation

Rome, Italy, November 30, 2017 � Bettoja Hotels (Hotel Mediterraneo, Atl�ntico and Massimo D�Azeglio), one of Italy�s most venerable family-owned hotel groups, announces the appointment of Mr. Ciro Verrocchi as Director General.

Mr. Verrocchi has been part of the hospitality industry for the last three decades. He has held numerous hotel leadership positions at renowned international companies, including Managing Director for IHI Italia, part of the Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG); General Manager of the Westin Europa & Regina, in Venice; and General Manager of the St. Regis Grand in Rome.

At IHG, Mr. Verrocchi helped launch Italy�s first IHG Academy program. The Academy provides hospitality training to members of the local community to help foster economic growth, and has helped thousands of people to date.

Mr. Verrocchi said he was excited to join the five-century–old Bettoja group  

Mr. Verrocchi said he was excited to join the five-century�old Bettoja group, whose three hotels are set in the bohemian Monti neighborhood, which is known for its intriguing mix of boutiques, wine bars and trattorias.

�I look forward to working for a smaller, family-run company and carrying on the Bettoja tradition of fine, personal service,� Mr. Verrocchi says.

The Bettoja group dates to 1875, when Maurizio Bettoja, a wine merchant from Piedmont, acquired the Massimo d�Azeglio restaurant, originally a tavern that opened in nearby St. Mary Major�s Square (Piazza di Santa Maria Maggiore). The three Bettoja hotels are set on the top of Esquilino Hill, and are within walking distance to most major Roman sites. Bettoja has long been known for its excellent cuisine and warm, personalized service. The hotels were built between the end of 1800 and the beginning of 1900, and great care has been taken to maintain their original style. Hotel Mediterraneo and Hotel Atlantico represent an exceptionally authentic example of Art Deco design, while the interiors at the Hotel Massimo D�Azeglio are known for their well-preserved fin de si�cle interiors.

The restaurant Massimo d�Azeglio is decorated with paintings and prints from the Risorgimento period, and one of the few restaurants recognized by the prestigious Association of Historical Places of Excellence in Rome.
