The Andina and Cattaneo spouses decide to quit their jobs to take over a small inn in Cadegliano Viconago, a small town in the province of Varese.
Slowly the inn comes alive. Tourists from Switzerland and Milan choose the Hotel Stampa to spend their free time, especially on spring and summer weekends, to rest in the shade of the lime trees that cover the terrace and to taste one of the delicious dishes cooked by the Mrs. Mimi.
The children of the couple grow along with the activity and, after completing their studies, they decide to help their parents to carry on in the business in which they believed.
Mr. Felice, thanks to the support of his son-in-law Giovanni, husband of his daughter Annalisa, is convinced to invest again in the family business.
The renovation starts, the aim is to give a touch of modernity: a new structure to accommodate the rooms, the expansion of the terrace for lunches and dinners, the building of the panoramic swimming pool.
To try to bust the activity the family decides to offer something new, pizza. It immediately becomes a hit with customers.
The family takes a new opportunity: the web. Therefore, the hotel continues to grow, attracting customers from all over the world.
After the summer season, the renovation begins with the aim of modernizing the entire structure and increasing the number of rooms.
The commitment of the new generations will give more and more professionalism to Stampa 1968. The older grandchildren study and work abroad in the best schools and famous environments in the hotel and catering field, to collaborate in the family business in the future.
Today the children of Mimi and Felice, with their families, run the hotel to carry on the activity undertaken by their parents 50 years ago.
On May 26, 2018, the Hotel Ristorante Stampa celebrated its 50th birthday with an event to celebrate the renovation.
