Roberto Jr. and Veruschka Wirth, respectively Executive President and CEO of the Hassler Roma, represent the sixth generation of a famous dynasty of Swiss hoteliers.
The dynasty began with Franz-Josef Bucher, now considered one of the pioneers of the hotel industry in Europe. In the 1870s, Bucher bought and developed the Trittalp area of Switzerland, previously remote and inaccessible.
Within a couple of years, he built several hotels in addition to the Hammetschwand, still the highest chair-lift in Europe, and the Burgenstock railway. In 1890, he sent his son-in-law, Heinrich Wirth, to Rome to become manager of the Hotel Minerva.
There began the Wirth family’s historical ties with Rome. Heinrich Wirth’s son, Oscar, joined the Hotel Hassler in 1921 and became the partner of another Swiss Hotelier, Mr. Hassler, and later the owner of the prestigious hotel.
In 1939, Oscar demolished the building almost entirely in order to rebuild it. After the hotel was requisitioned by the US Air Force to serve as their Rome headquarters during World War II, the new Hassler was finally opened to the public in 1947.
In 1950, Roberto, the first son of Oscar and his wife Carmen, was born in Rome. Roberto E. Wirth was devoted and attentive and considered the Hotel his home and family heritage.
He transmitted his commitment, his passion and dedication and personal touch to his sons Roberto Jr. and Veruschka Wirth who have inherited the property and management of the Hassler in 2022.
During the last century, the hotel has achieved its position as one of Europe’s top hotels and the preferred destination for the elite society’s sojourns in Rome.
Roberto Jr. and Veruschka Wirth have also acquired Il Palazzetto, a charming 16th-century building overlooking Spanish Steps and a few minutes from the Hassler, which is a hotel with four rooms, a wine bar and private event space.
Since Roberto Wirth was born profoundly deaf, he was very active in various associations for the deaf in addition to founding CABSS (Assistance Center for Deaf and Deafblind Children) , a non-profit organization that is dedicated to supporting deaf and deafblind children, and their families.
The association focuses in particular on children from birth to six years and works with projects that promote an adequate cognitive, emotional, social, linguistic and communicative development, that allows children to fully express their personality.

SIGHTSEEING TOURS AND SUGGESTED ITINERARIES
Some suggested itineraries in Rome, accompanied by Hassler-accredited guides:
Vatican Museums, St. Peter’s Basilica
The Vatican Museums offer one of the largest and richest art collections in the world, including absolute masterpieces such as the Sistine Chapel with Michelangelo’s frescoes, or the incredible Rooms of Raffaello, Caravaggio’s canvases, and an equally vast exposition of ancient statues due to the patronage of the Popes of the past, lovers of art and determined to give resonance to their lineage.
After visiting the Museums, you will be conducted to St. Peter’s Basilica, where a guide will illustrate the historic stratification where the foundations were initiated by Pope Julius II and continued in different eras by the successive Popes.
The ruins of Imperial, of Pagan Rome, and of its gladiator spectacles will be unveiled step by step by a professional archaeologist and expert guide. The visit includes the exploration of places rich in history and allure such as the Roman Forum.
Particular attention will be paid to pagan basilicas and temples, passing under the Arc of Titus, and continuing up onto the Palatine Hill from which gains a spectacular view of the Circus Maximus.
The itinerary proceeds with an accurate visit of the Coliseum, climbing up every level until one dominates the entire arena from above. The tour finishes with a visit to Rome’s most famous pagan temple, the Pantheon. Enjoy a visit to this historic Rome location with the Hassler, one of the top 5 star Rome hotels near Coliseum.
The city’s surface, with its beautiful monuments that narrate an ancient story, hides just as much history in the silence and shadows of its subterranean levels.
Under the trafficked and frenzied streets you will find ancient pagan temples, paleochristian churches (Basilica of St. Clement), the homes of wealthy patricians (Roman Houses at the Celio), the christian catacombs (the Catacombs of Priscilla and Domitilla) and Jewish ones, hypogeas and Mithrian temples.
The visit offers an example of each type of subterranean ruins in Rome, including the Basilica of the four Crowned Saints, the Church of St. Stefano Rotondo, the Curch of St. Nicola and of St. Silvestro.
