CHECK OUT OUR LIBRARY
Why we chose to be a Fred Point:
1. We love the idea of sharing a library because the books are an important part of our lives;
2. Because our hotel becomes more and more a place of words , stories , exchange;
3. Because we want every visitor not just to take a book to borrow, but gifts the hotel with a book as well.
In this way the library of La Ceramica will become a living testimony of all the people who have lived here , even if for just one day .
4. As James, the founder of FRED , we are convinced that meeting people is better than being behind a computer or a smartphone .
5. We are dreamers .
