Though Forte has had a hotel in Sardinia since 1969, its newest bauble, a monument to luxury in the heart of the Italian capital, marks an exuberant homecoming for the Fortes - especially Sir Rocco's father, Lord Charles Forte, who immigrated from Italy to England and started a business with a Milk Bar in 1935, acquiring his first hotel in 1958.
In a party worthy of the ancients, at the grand opening of Forte plc's Hotel Eden in Rome, Margaret Thatcher mingled with mortals, including those painted gold and hired to pose virtually naked as living statues.
Last November, London-based Forte acquired Paris-based Societes Des Hotels Meridien, a French hotel group, for 280 million pounds ($445.
But Meridien gives Forte a presence in Asian markets where supply will very soon outstrip demand.
