  • PIEMONTE (Nord of Italy)

The Castle of Guarene is an exclusive and unique place, a precious testimony of the Baroque in Piemonte, for seven centuries dominating the hills and the Langhe.

It is an imposing three-storey building, which reaches 25 meters in height, surrounded by vast and elegant Italian gardens built in the first half of the eighteenth century.

About two hours from Milan, this Relais & Chateaux is full of works of art, having been an archive of memories and a museum of architecture, painting and decorative arts. The “Stanza del Vescovo“, the “Camera Azzurra”, the nineteenth-century frescoed vaults of the “Sala della Musica“, will take you on a journey through history, overlooking an Italian garden: the Labyrinth Garden.

See you!

The virtuosity of the Piano:Bach

Creativity.
This, I think is the best way to describe Bach.

Baroque music, finds full expression in his works full of energy, full of virtuosity.
Actually this music, created for other instruments, will find its full realization, in the piano.
If you love the piano, then, do not miss the concert of tonight, Homage to Bach, of Alexander Tharaud, young French talent.

A bit of fairy tale in Rome!

As soon as time will grant a truce, I recommend a visit to this fabulous area of ​​Rome: the Quartiere Coppedè.

English: Quartiere Coppedè in Rome

Named after the architect who designed it in 1913, seems straight out of a storybook ….

Every street is filled with a strong Art Nouveau, with Gothic, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque variations…

A very special combination of patterns that make the facades of the houses very impressive, redundant with decorations.

Among all, the Villino of the Fairies, only the name suggeststhe incredible stylistic expression of the facade!

Believe me, this neighborhood is like a bit of  fairy tale in Rome!
