Like an autograph album made of stone and pottery pieces, this wall exists as both a charming public artwork and an impressive historical record. Walking down Corso Dante Alighieri, passersby come face-to-face with the markers of well-known figures from the worlds of art, culture, fashion, and sport.
From the late 19th century well into the 20th, Alassio, Italy, had developed from a seaside resort popular with the English upper classes to a cosmopolitan spot for the literati and high society tourists. Caffè Roma, a historic venue owned by the Berrino family, came to be a meeting point and a social hub for the jetsetters and artists staying in the town. Ernest Hemingway was one such patron in the early 1950s.
