Bringing the Talent to you

A Taste of Tuscan Arts offers a holiday with a difference!

SUMMER ARTS SESSIONS (June to September)

The summer Taste of Tuscan Arts course will be based around a visit to the Puccini Festival at Torre del Lago on Friday 25 July, when we will see Puccini’s opera, Madame Butterfly.

Music Workshop:
Guests will be given a detailed insight into the writing of this opera, with analysis, and there will be the opportunity for practical exercises – both music and drama.

Art Workshop:
Open - air classes will look at drawing skills and working with colour.
Here is an example of work produced by a beginner group. Classes will be adapted to fit with the skills/experience of guests.
Italian Workshop:
We have mother-tongue teachers who have much experience teaching Italian as a foreign language.
For those who have some knowledge of the language and want to work on conversation skills, there will be various role-play activities and of course the opportunity to speak Italian on the various trips, during meal times etc.
Beginners are also catered for.

Villa Rosalena, Bagni di Lucca is one of the villas we use. Details can be found on their website – click on Villa Rosalena on the main page of the course details.
