The Milan bourgeoisie had chosen this place to vacation in the summer, creating Milano Marittima, (“Milano By The Sea”). An uninhabited place turned into an exclusive destination that during the twentieth century was to become one of the most popular seaside resort areas on the Adriatic Coast. Inspired by the idea of a "garden city", Milano Marittima was built within a lush natural garden: the pine forest, a few steps from the sea. In the '20s and' 30s it became a regular destination of prominent personalities from the world of culture and art, such as Grazia Deledda, who in '27 became an honorary citizen, or such as poets Ungaretti and Luzi.
