Aeroviaggi S.p.A. was founded in Palermo in 1973 by Antonio Mangia. The company operates in the tourism sector as one the first Hotel Owners and Operators, directly managing 13 properties between Sicily and Sardinia, the two largest islands in the Mediterranean.

In 2019, Marcello Mangia became CEO and President of Aeroviaggi S.p.A. and in July 2021, the company underwent a complete rebranding to become Mangia’s. This marked a move into a different market segment and a new era for the company, armed with a fresh perspective but still firmly rooted in traditional values and the Made in Italy experience.

Mangia’s is an Italian hotel brand operating in the upper-upscale segment. The brand manages 13 properties in Sicily and Sardinia, 4- and 5-star Resorts and Club accommodation. With the acquisition of two historic buildings in the city of Palermo – the Grand Hotel et Des Palmes and Palazzo Favaloro Gallo – Mangia’s is about to launch a line of city hotels. The brand’s pillars are Italian Taste, Biophilic Design, Sustainability and People, and these elements give the structures their unmistakable Mangia’s signature.

Mangia’s offers both Resort and Club accommodation, ideal destinations for guests looking for an authentic Italian vacanza. 9 of Mangia’s Resorts and Clubs are located in Sicily: Mangia’s Brucoli, Sicily, Autograph Collection near Syracuse, Mangia’s Torre del Barone Resort & SPA in Agrigento province, Mangia’s Selinunte Resort in Trapani province, Mangia’s Pollina Resort and Mangia’s Himera Resort close to Cefalù and Palermo, Mangia’s Favignana Resort on the island of Favignana, and MClub Cala Regina, MClub Alicudi and MClub Lipari also in Agrigento province. The rest of Mangia’s properties are situated in Sardinia, to the north of the island: Mangia’s Santa Teresa Sardinia, Curio Collection by Hilton near Santa Reparata, TUI Blue Budoni in Budoni, MClub Marmorata in Santa Teresa Gallura and MClub Del Golfo in Marina di Sorso.

In 2024, the Hotels & Chains Report published by Horwath HTL places Mangia’s in 1st place in the ranking of Italian chains and 4th place among international chains, in terms of number of keys in the 5-star and 5-star luxury segment.
