Join us for a week of creativity. 

In October we will be in San Gemini and participants will have the whole week to work on a project they bring with them.

We will gather to share our stories, projects, inspiration around the dinner table and after by the fireplace.


Our residence is a magnificent 500-year-old palazzo in Umbria, Italy.

This ancient home is located right in the village of San Gemini.

Each participant can either have a private room or a shared room with two twin beds. 

We have full use of the house which includes a beautiful

garden around a pool, two living rooms, and a bell tower with a view of the village.

San Gemini is a small community with a town square where the locals gather.

There are wonderful restaurants, hidden churches, winding cobblestone streets

and even a museum or two to explore.

The local coffee shop is the center of the community and the

gelateria is a perfect spot for a quick treat during a break.

Daniella, our personal chef, will prepare amazing five-course dinners. 

There is an option to take a cooking class in the home of

Lorena Autori, a world-known chef located right in San Gemini.

An excursion to Orvieto is included in the agenda for some shopping and
