A photographic celebration of the Hotel Il Pellicano, the secluded, exclusive hotel at Porto Ercole, Italy. Three photographers - John Swope, Slim Aarons and Juergen Teller - have captured the glamour and dolce vita of this small area of seaside paradise at different times over the last century. John Swope's photos show the hotel's early beginnings between 1964 and 1971. In Slim Aarons images (1967-1991) the place comes alive with the beautiful faces of the International jet set - the Borgheses, Corsinis, Puccis and Pignatellis. Juergen Teller captures the next generation at play at the Globetrotter's party in the Summer of 2009.
