Mota, hospitality in Livigno is an idea, inspiration and project fuelled not only by the hard work of Alessandro and Raffaele Rodigari and their staff but also by the story and passion of a whole family.
The Rodigari brothers have continued their parents’ work by updating and relaunching a unique location, the historic Hotel Mota, founded in 1973 with a mission of providing a warm welcome and high levels of comfort. A temple to hospitality in the heart of the Alps, in one of the world’s most famous and popular tourist destinations: Livigno. Alessandro and Raffaele love a job well done, the Valtellina and the minor and major joys of life. And they can’t wait to share all this with you. To create the unforgettable moments that ensure a splendid holiday.
On December 23, 1973, the Mota hotel opened in Livigno.
Sisters Claudia and Tullia Rodigari embarked on a great adventure fueled by a passion for guest care, a distinctive trait of Mota for 50 years.
The fabulous 1980s were truly fantastic for Mota. Claudia started a family with Flavio, and at the same time, the hotel's restaurant, with iconic dishes like the Chateaubriand Filet, became an increasingly important part. These were the years when Italians began to discover the beauty of Livigno.
The 1990s brought a new momentum to Livigno, involving Mota as well. It was a time of more refined and conscious tourism. For Mota, the '90s were the decade when, thanks to Flavio's intuition and passion, the value of wine was rediscovered as a product of excellence, after years of neglect, and as a tool for understanding and promoting the territory.
In the new millennium, everything changed. Livigno began to establish itself not only as a winter tourist destination but also as a year-round sports hub. It was the era of mountain bike championships, elite athletes in altitude training, and a significant number of visitors. Mota rode the wave.
For Mota, 2008 marked a new beginning. The historic structure underwent renovation, making way for the Hotel Mota, upgrading from 2 to 4 stars.
Led by Claudia and Flavio's sons, Raffaele and Alessandro, Mota can proudly celebrate its first 50 years as one of Livigno's best accommodations, combining top-notch comfort, high-level cuisine, numerous activities related to the territory, and a relaxation area with exclusive treatments.
The Rodigari family’s project grows and is achieved day by day thanks to the energy and input of a large number of professionals. Who are they? The receptionists, the hotel and restaurant managers, the chef and his team, the maître d’, the waiters and wine waiter, the room service staff, the barmen, the wellness treatment staff and masseuses and many other people who have helped to make this dream come true. Come and meet them; they’ll give you a warm welcome to the Mota.
