A shrine to the spirit of Italy, this was the birthplace of the Trentino section of the Lega Nazionale, the irredentist association that, while ostensibly safeguarding Italian language and culture, fought against the Austrians. After the First World War, Mussolini, then director of Avanti, engaged in fierce political debates with delegates of the Lega. De Gasperi, the first prime minister of the Italian Republic, lived in the area and was a habitué all his life. Already open as the Caffè Grande Simeoni in 1850, it is in the Viennese Art Nouveau style, with marbles, wooden decorations, lamps and furnishings all perfectly restored.
