An Open air Museum

juxtaposition of past and present


Ghizzano is a perfect example of traditional Tuscan architecture, warm colours, construction with large wooden beams and stone. What makes Ghizzano stand out is the juxtaposition of past and present, side by side in the village creating a perfect whole.

Recently Ghizzano has become an artistic pearl, there are various installations around the village making it into an ‘Open air museum’ with a fascinating array of vivid colours and marble, iron and stone. David Tremlett’s installation in Via di Mezzo (also known as the Green Way) attracts numerous visitors and we named our 2017 100% Sangiovese after it.
