Welcome to our second “edition” of Discover Ciociaria! This time, we’ll be visiting this beautiful land which has been called “the real Italy,” in autumn. The weather will be fine with warm, mellow days and cool nights. The light will be just right for painting, with fields turning gold and grapes ready for harvest. In fact, during our visit, the village of Piglio will celebrate the grape harvest in their annual Sagra dell’Uva Cesanese, a festival all about the rich, red, ancient wine produced in Ciociaria, called Cesanese. We’ll stay at a hotel high in the hill town of Serrone and visit several other small villages where we’ll paint, and, of course, sample the fresh, delicious cucina tipica Ciociara. We’ll have a day to try our hand at preparing a traditional dish or two at a cooking class! We invite you to preview what’s in store…escape for a few moments to Italy, enjoy a little viaggio and watch a slide show from our 2012 Discover Ciociaria adventure in Italy.
Abbracci a tutti,
Nancy and Giulio
