Maximo Viola

125 years ago, our family led by Dr Maximo Viola realized that in order to preserve our country’s future, that we must fight for our freedom despite overwhelming odds. His sister, Bienvenida, along with the rest of their siblings would muster all of the family’s land holdings and resources to help fuel The Philippines’ struggle for independence and economic prosperity.

Bienvenida & Laura Viola

Our grandmother Laura, Bienvenida’s daughter, would follow in her Uncle Maximo’s footsteps when he studied in Europe with national hero Dr Jose Rizal and begin a family in Hong Kong after WWII. She and her own children would become the 1st to settle overseas that would bring our Filipino Family to the US, Canada, the Middle East, Europe, and Asia. 

The Viola Initiative

The Viola Initiative is our endeavor to be true to Maximo, Bienvenida, and Laura’s legacy that embodies their love for travel, hospitality, and how property can lead to initiatives worth doing — and sometimes worth fighting for despite challenging odds.
