Palazzo Di Piero
I wrote earlier about attending the Italy Masterclass organised by Jeff Medford and taught by Clay Blackmore and David Ziser. Well, this is where the class was held – at the Palazzo Di Piero in Sarteano, Italy. What a beautiful location for a photography workshop!
Parts of the Palazzo were built much earlier than others. From the dated stone I found in one of the walls, it seems the early parts of the castle date back to AD 1599. Quite old by any standards! According to one of the current owners, Berenice, the latter parts were built in the 1800’s. The buildings form part of a still working farm that produces beautiful wine and olive oil. I can say from personal experience, both were very pleasing on the palette.
Every morning it was a pleasure to wake up and look out through the open window. What a gorgeous view!
