EXCURSION PROGRAMS AND WORKSHOPS 2014





It's really nice arrive into a place you're not familiar with and having a friend there to guide you around.
I'm here  to give you some insight about my land and  a bit of experience into Italian life.
Let's visit together the unknown Italy in the heart of Maremma,  between Tuscany and Lazio.

My names is Marianna and I am 27 years old. I live in a small gorgeous village on the Amiata Mountain, called Santa Fiora. I am an architect and since short time I became also a tour guide.
Combining my passions for monuments, ancient traditions and taste, I propose three kinds of routes...


 
1) ART AND HISTORY GUIDED EXCURSIONS

For a first approach,  just a few examples (I am available throughout the territory of Viterbo and Grosseto):
- discover the Etruscan civilization of Vulci, a walk through the ancient ruins of the city up to a beautiful pond (it lasts about 3 hours)
- in a day, discover the tufa towns Pitigliano and Sorano, two cities carved in the rock. moreover the historic center of Sovana has a wealth of religious and civil architecture of the early Middle Ages
-visit the historic centre of Montefiascone, with his unmistakable silhouette and the impressive dome of the church of Santa Margherita. Rocca di Papi is the remains of the old Papal summer residence. It provides a great view of Bolsena Lake from its position at the top of the town.


    2) INSIDE THE TRADITION
For groups from 3-10 guests we offer a variety of options
-Visit the old cellar: we walk in the vineyard  with guided tour and wine tasting
-Visit the oil mill: we observe the processing of olive oil and we taste the famous "bruschetta", a slice of bread cooked in the fireplace and topped with olive oil
- Guided tours to local manufacturers and artisans, including: cheese makers, ceramic studios or stone carving, wrought iron workshop…
  
    3) WORKSHOPS
- LANDSCAPE PAINTING AND LIFE-DRAWING
We draw together landscape of Maremma: wagons, oxen, few pastors and wilderness. It is not the the Wild West but the Italy of the early '900! In case of bad weather, this course can take place inside the Museum of Brigandage in Cellere, near Viterbo.
- ARCHITECTURAL DRAWING
We draw together one of the first works of the Italian Renaissance: the church of Sant'Egidio in Cellere (built in 1515) . Floor plan, site plan, elevation front and... and axonometric projections if we can! However, we can only make things easy, and proceed only with the first sketches like a beginner  architect.
