Hotel Barberino del Mugello - Tuscany holidays - Mugello what to see

Great news at Monsignor della Casa

Our country resort in Tuscany boasts a prominent past and it deserves it: here is the birthplace of Giovanni della Casa, author of the best-known treatise of polite behavior and courtesy in Europe and in the world, the Galateo.

The "Monsignore" had prestigious origins, because he was the son of Lisabetta Tornabuoni, cousin of the Magnificent, Lorenzo de 'Medici. The belonging to the most powerful Florentine family accustomed him to culture, beauty and noble arts.

Similar attitudes found the richest soil in the Medici's favorite land and cradle of great painters such as Giotto and Beato Angelico, born 2 km from here. The Mugello with its green hills and fresh water sources (like that of Acqua Panna) was the place of inspiration for the universally known treatise on courtesy and bon ton. Among the Palazzo dei Vicari in Scarperia, the Fortress of San Martino and the majestic Medici castles, the birthplace of Giovanni della Casa in Borgo San Lorenzo revives: it was just restored respecting the authenticity and the sober elegance of the origins.

From 20 May 2019 the villa will be available for weekly rentals, ideal for family reunions, private events and exclusive weddings in Tuscany.
