Friday, 14 - Sunday, 16 October 2022.
Our Autumn Study tour takes us to the Lucca area of Tuscany. We will be staying in the privately owned Villa Nottolini near Lucca. The villa, with its frescoes and Neoclassical chapel, dates back to the fifteenth century and has been enlarged over the succeeding centuries. Plans for the weekend include a visit to Lucca to see the Palazzo Manzi, a baroque villa with an enfilade containing a unique parade of original tapestries. Other places on the itinerary include the Villa Reale di Marlia, Villa Bernadini and the Villa Torrigiani, with its seventeenth century frescoes by Scorzini and eighteenth century furniture original to the house. We will also be visiting private collections, one with an important collection of Lucchese furniture.
