History

The Hotel Meridiana in Venice was built by Giuseppe Tramontin in the early 30’s.  It is named after the large sun dial on its façade, not just artistically captivating but also practical for all the passers on and from their way to the beach, as own watches have been very rare.
Although initially classified as an "inn", it immediately became an above average tourist structure. At that time it had 35 rooms.
For its characteristics and being not far from the beach, it became very popular.
Guests flocked the Hotel from various locations but they mainly consisted of families from Padua and Milan which would stay on the Lido of Venice for up to two months.

Giuseppe Tramontin immediately let his oldest daughter Linda manage the Hotel.  Construction was carried out by her husband, Italo Regazzo’s company.

Linda Tramontin managed the hotel until 1974, until reaching a ripe old age.
After closing for renovations for a year, Linda’s son Giuliano Regazzo’s wife, Linda, Maria Luisa Loffredo, took over, assisted, upon reaching adulthood, by their son Gianluca, who now runs the Hotel.
