Issimo is the digital extension of the Pellicano world – an immersive journey into our culture, philosophy and taste. Consider ISSIMO the destination for everything Italian where stories and products from all sectors, including fashion, design, culture, food, travel and exclusive partnerships, reside.
As the outpost for the 21st Grand Tour, Issimo is the crossroads of artisanal craftsmanship and contemporary design for a true discovery of Italian excellence. ISSIMO is for the curious, passionate, adventurous and hungry about everything Italian, with a twist. Ideated, curated and designed by Marie-Louise Sciò.
Iconic, timeless and unexpected, the Pellicano Hotels are the very actualization of mythical Italian beauty. Three spectacular properties in Italy’s secluded and least obvious seasides, Il Pellicano, Mezzatorre and La Posta Vecchia are distinctly unique with history, culture and style. While the last tycoon hides out in the shade of the resplendent La Posta Vecchia luxe retreat, Tuscan habituès vie for the view from Il Pellicano’s private cove on the coveted Argentario coast, and those in need of an off-the-books getaway sail from Naples to Ischia for an island escape at the exclusive Mezzatorre.
Marie-Louise Sciò, Creative Director and CEO of Pellicano Hotels, RISD architecture graduate and all-around tastemaker, is on mission to bring the Pellicano hotels experience into the digital realm. By carefully curating selected collections and collaborations, Marie-Louise launches ISSIMO, a super strada to the creators and artisans defining Italian culture.
