The Alberghi Diffusi movement
New life in Lazio’s ghost villages, Italy
The “alberghi diffusi” movement, which originated in the 80s, is a way of transforming some of Italy’s depopulated “ghost” villages into guest villages. Rooms are scattered around the streets to bring in much needed funds and protect their architectural, cultural and social heritage. With stunning views of the Sabine mountains and Lake Piediluco, Albergo Diffuso Crispolti’s stylishly pared-back suites and apartments – which are dotted around the medieval centre of Labro on the Lazio-Umbria border – are helping to revitalise this tiny village.
