Lady Chatterley's lover and the Miramare Hotel
In 1925, during one of his many trips around the world, D.H Lawrence receives the bad news of being suffering from tuberculosis, a disease for which living in a place with a mild and healthy climate was recommended as a cure. He therefore went first to Baden Baden, in Germany, renowned for its thermal waters but soon took into consideration the advice of a friend of his, the publisher Marc Secker, who thus introduced him to Liguria and in particular Spotorno. Our hotel was his first Ligurian residence, which made him fall in love with our sea so much that he decided to rent a villa and spend an entire year in Spotorno. It was in Spotorno that his wife Frida met, and several years later she married, an Italian, Angelo Ravagli. Perhaps it was also thanks to this meeting that Lawrence began to write what would become his best known work: “Lady Chatterley’s lover”.
