Villa Zaballina, Cinciano, Tuscany

Villa Zaballina is the main building of the romantic and vibrant Cinciano village. We visited the Villa accompanied by Claudio Antonelli, the general manager of the estate. The Villa faces a gorgeous Italian garden on three terraces with a secluded swimming pool and solarium, which is ideal for alfresco events and ceremonies.

In 1126, Zaballina of Bottaccio gave the Villa to Gotifredo, the Bishop of Florence. The picture shows the bedroom that accommodated the Bishop during his sojourns at Cinciano, with the old painted ceiling and frescoed walls that typically decorate all the Villa.

The Villa, which can accommodate up to a maximum of 16 guests, is available for rentals and events. While there, guests can enjoy other local Cinciano treats such as olive oil or wine tastings or have a meal at the Osteria 1126 restaurant. We really appreciated both the opportunities.

Every corner of Villa Zaballina, every detail you see walking in Cinciano show the history, care and passion that the Owners have been dedicated over the years to this jewel in the heart of Chianti.


Chiostro of Museo dell’Opera del Duomo of Pisa, Tuscany

Andrea Cinacchi , who is responsible for events of the Opera della Primaziale Pisana, opened the doors of the Cloister of the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo, the antechamber of the famous Piazza dei Miracoli of Pisa for us.

In an atmosphere of authentic magic, in the garden and under the loggia of the Cloister, he explained, that here we can organize gala dinners and concerts. Facing the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the cloister offers an unedited and exclusive view, which enhances even more the uniqueness of the event.

During this encounter, we met Silvia Piccini, the trustworthy guide of the Opera della Primaziale. Silvia has given us the chance of a unique visit both fascinating and moving, even for us that have always lived in Pisa.


Reggia Venaria Reale, Piedmont

Rising a few kilometres from Turin, the Reggia Venaria Reale is a masterpiece of international baroque architecture and landscaping, one of the favourite residences of the Dukes and Kings of the house of Savoy, and today a Unesco Heritage of Humanity site.

During our visit we saw the range of possibilities for use of the Reggia, its outbuildings and its exterior spaces, which overlook the royal gardens and the large La Mandria Park.

The Diana Hall and the Great Gallery, the so-called ‘Gallery of Diana’, and the Rondò Alfierano, the Chapel of Saint Hubert, are just some of the beautiful locations for corporate and private events, as well as for civil and religious weddings that can be held there. The artistic beauty of these locations is striking, and impressive restorations have brought the Reggia back to its antique splendour.

Equally impressive is the transparent and linear organizational setup, which give easy and efficient access for the creation of any kind of event in the context of an important museum.
