The colorful vintage / retro look is very appealing to collectors and are quite the conversation piece.

Instead of 1882 the first "Beach" to undertake Cervia as holiday accommodation.  In 1907 it was established a relationship agreement between the town of Cervia and Maffei, one of the most important families of Milan; report according to which the municipality made way society Lombard a wide area of marine wrecks with the obligation of the licensee to fabbricarne lodges, parks, gardens to create a new bathing area. Questa fu denominata Milano Marittima, nome che confermava il forte legame con l'ambiente milanese.

It was a modern city holiday for the average middle class Lombard, entirely built on a series of villas located within the lush pine forest. Among these we must remember the home of the same Palanti, one of the first houses built, which can still be admired. Then began a remarkable urban development that, despite the interruption to the outbreak of the First World War, then continued increasingly evident in the'20s.
