A story of beauty and entrepreneurial daring

The legendary Manfredi hospitality

The Manfredi Fine Hotels Collection was the brainchild of Count Goffredo Manfredi, relentless entrepreneur, passionate art collector and, with his wife always by his side, a prominent member of the Dolce Vita jet-set. He has taken his place in a long line of Italian noblemen renowned for their hospitality, beginning with the Roman patricians who welcomed artists and intellectuals into their splendid villas, and has evolved the concept to meet the present-day needs of a high-end international clientele.

Count Goffredo and Countess Enrica

Born in Rome in 1918, Count Goffredo Ceglia Manfredi embarked on his entrepreneurial journey at the tender age of just 18 when he founded his first company – building and road construction, as per family tradition – in 1936. He took up arms in the Resistance during World War II and received a Silver Medal for Military Valor, before becoming one of the leading men in Italy’s booming 1950s economy with an impressive series of successful start-ups in sectors ranging from chemical to mechanical engineering, from shipbuilding to civil and military airports and from freeways to railways. Countess Enrica, her husband’s constant companion, played her role as a prominent Roman socialite with ease, thanks in part to an extraordinary family lineage that links her to both the Imperial Family of Russia and that great man of letters Percy Bysshe Shelley. Together, the couple epitomized the spirit of Dolce Vita Italy and contributed to the vibrant culture of the country’s most vibrant decade.
