Beatrice Monti della Corte A Tower in Tuscany: Or a Home for My Writers and Other Animals

60.00 EUROS

“A glimpse inside a magical Tuscan villa–rustic yet urbane, old-world elegant yet bohemian, accessible yet personal–that nurtures the world’s finest literary talents.

In the hills above Florence, Santa Maddalena is like a secret garden where writers hone their craft and meet like-minded people. Paired with evocative images, these essays by 27 acclaimed authors invite readers to understand how the spirit of this restored villa, its owners and resident pets have inspired creative writing and creativity among so many.

Beatrice Monti della Corte and her late husband, Gregor von Rezzori, transformed a ruin into the ultimate retreat where they would write, garden, and entertain friends and fellow artists–Pedro Almodóvar, Bernardo Bertolucci, David Hockney, Isabella Rossellini. This gracious weaving together of hospitality and creativity became the Santa Maddalena Foundation and writers’ fellowship program in 2000.”
