Meet G-Rough Owner Gabriele Salini

Owner of G-rough and Palazzo Daniele & Eighth Generation Roman

Gabriele’s family has resided in Rome for eight generations, paving the way for him to create two incredible boutique hotels in his hometown and Puglia. Each of these hotels has a feeling and design unlike any other.


Favorite restaurant and what to order?  

Trattoria Al Moro. I order “carciofi alla romana” as a starter and a “spaghetti alla Moro” which is a revisited version of the spaghetti alla carbonara. Soooo good!


Your favorite italian weekend getaway?

Ponza, a little magical island where romans go whenever the sun comes out. I love swimming in Palmarola until the sunset. Dinner at Acqua Pazza or Aragosta.


Who’s your inspiration / favorite Italian designer (or artist, architect, painter, photographer) ?

Adalberto libera for architecture, Gio Ponti for design, Luigi Ghirri for photography, Paolo Sorrentino for film making… Italy is a country rich with inspirational people.


How would you describe Italy in one sentence? 

The country of great beauty and contradictions.
