In Puglia, we are achieving both of these goals, and this is the perfect project to expand our presence in Italy with our partners at Omnam Investment Group, led by David Zisser. We look forward to setting the standard for luxury hospitality in this beautiful region, creating opportunities to discover more of this incredible country with Four Seasons.

The Puglia resort will join existing Four Seasons Italian properties in Florence and Milan, while the historic San Domenico Palace in Taormina on the eastern coast of Sicily is set to reopen as a Four Seasons property following renovation.
