History[edit]

The Palazzo Margherita is currently the property of Francis Ford Coppola.[1] In 1904 the film director's grandfather left Bernalda for a new life in America.[2] The Palazzo was the location for Sofia Coppola's wedding to Thomas Mars in August 2011.[3][4] The Coppola family purchased the Palazzo in 2004 and converted it into a small luxury hotel.[5][6][7][8]
