We Love Our Reschio Rizzoli Book

We love our Rizzoli book in all its glorious colour, complete with witty words. We love how the author, Steve King found the best historical anecdotes. Wherever the pages fall open there is something to surprise, amuse and always a stunning image.

Rizzoli telephoned Reschio two years ago and suggested an opulent illustrated book focusing on the estate’s thousand year history. The timing was right, as Benedikt Bolza recalls, “When the Hotel Castello di Reschio opened in May 2021, it captured all the limelight, overshadowing the significant achievements of the Estate’s past 3 decades. I decided that a book would help restore the balance and illustrate how the hotel, despite being much-loved, is just a small part of the entire Estate.”

With fabulous photographs and a well-documented archive that graphically shows how the landscape has evolved into an ecosystem including biodynamic farming, and how, from 50 ruins, 31 houses have metamorphosised into stunning architecturally designed houses still leaving some gems for the future. There was much material and many layers to peel back.

“I did not want just another coffee table book filled with beautiful pictures,” said Benedikt, “the writing was equally important to me. We selected Steve King who really understood Reschio and how the family is at one with the land – with him we decided to use the alphabet to cherry pick 26 important aspects of Reschio.”

We co-art-directed the book and when it came to the cover, it was a unanimous decision - an impromptu shot that Benedikt had taken of his wife, Nencia as they selected paintings to hang in the castle. We love how the doyenne from a former age, gazes out to the castle’s current matriarch.
