Castello Montecchio

Brian Dougan, che in una festa medievale interpreto' l' Acuto - Sir John Hawkwood signore di Montecchio alla fine del trecento - e' amico del castello da più di venticinque anni, cioè da quando era nostro vicino al "Santa Chiara Studi Center" ... E da li, ogni anno, conduce i suoi studenti di terre lontane alla conquista di questo pezzetto indimenticabile di Val di Chiana ... For the past several years, the summer finds Brian Dougan and a small collection of design students from the American University of Sharjah (found in the United Arab Emirates) perambulating through Tuscany seeing and drawing the unique spirit of the place. The adventure lasts a few weeks and never fails to be a productive mix of pasta, fountain pens and sketchbooks. As the professor and surrogate parent for the group, Brian also provides instruction and demonstration throughout the tour by maintaining his own collection of drawings. Over the years, Brian has managed to accumulate a few A4 sheets of Tuscan memories. Many of these indelible memories are grounded between Castiglion Fiorentino and Cortona at Castello Montecchio Vesponi, rendered passionately meaningful by its own Orietta Floridi Viterbini. The castle is a predictable source of inspiration, a majestic icon waiting patiently to share its story and many surprises and mystery with all who approach its territory. Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of the never ending story.
