Carol Faenzi and her team curate luxurious, authentic, and personalized travel within Tuscany for very small groups of ardent, discerning, and curious Seekers of Beauty.
Carol’s ancestors emigrated to America at the turn of the 20th century from two iconic cities of Tuscany: Carrara, famous for its pure white marble quarries and Pitigliano, located in southern Tuscany in the Land of the Etruscans.
Carol Faenzi’s popular novel, The Stonecutter’s Aria, led her to design excursions based on ancestral places and the stories of her stone-carving ancestors. She wrote the book during a career sabbatical while staying on a property once owned by Michelangelo, in the hills above Florence. Her business partner and the owner, Alessandra Marchetti, is an art historian, tour guide and expert on the Artist.
Together, they have created very special cultural experiences throughout Tuscany, many of them private and exclusive. One example: A private concert in Puccini’s home, the music played on his piano and a soprano performing his most famous arias, all at the invitation of Signora Simonetta Puccini and her Foundation.
