The story behind the name
Villa Rosebud took her name from the American film “Citizen Kane”. The word “Rosebud” was the last word that Foster Kane, a wealthy newspaper publisher, utters before he dies. After his death, in his mansion Xanadu, all his personal belongings are being destroyed and as the film ends, the camera shows a burning sled and one minute before the sled is being destroyed forever, Jerry Tompson, a reporter who was in charge of discovering the meaning of Kane’s last word, Rosebud, suddenly sees that on the backside of the sled a word was engraved, the word Rosebud.
Rosebud is related to Kane’s last moments of childhood happiness when his bank-trustee appointed guardian comes to take him away while he was playing with his favorite sled.
The word Rosebud symbolizes Kane’s lost innocent, his childhood happiness and the importance of tinny tiny moments.
