Welcome to the Alberghi Diffusi Official Website

Alberghi Diffusi National Association welcomes you on our new official website, where you can find all the information you need about the Albergo Diffuso concept, from its definition as a “made in Italy” innovative hospitality model to the news about the ADI association, browsing among the different hotels that took part in the initiative.

Starting today the webpages about the Alberghi Diffusi feature new sections, including “Location Storytellers” where the soul of that particular Albergo Diffuso is represented by its hotelier, guiding you through the territory like no one else can.

This hospitality model was developed by tourism marketing professor Giancarlo Dall’Ara. It was then formally acknowledged in Sardinia with a specific regulation in 1998.

The continuous diffusion of “albergo diffuso” is due to the growing concern about sustainability and respect for the environment in the travel industry.

In reference to the wider concept of “Scattered Hospitality”, the natural location of an “albergo diffuso” can be found in little historical towns or countryside and mountain villages. In the case of peculiar locations, different types of hotels are also associated.
