Toscana golosa - Cooking school
Cooking SchoolThe region’s natural beauty, architectural treasures and sublime selection of food and wine, combine with our warm welcome to invite you to stay and be our guest. We want to tell you about our passion for Tuscany, for the land and how to cook tasty and traditional meals. But words are not enough... “Toscana golosa” is one of the most renowned cooking schools in Tuscany. Cooking classes are taking place in the charming Hotel “I Pini” the old residence of the famous painter Galileo Chini.
Emiliana Lucchesi is the instructor: she is one of Italy;s most famous journalists and food and wine writer. She is the author of several books and articles dealing with this wonderful subject . She is also a columnist for “Corriere Vinicolo”, “Lusso”, “Le Vie”, “Azienda Edicola” and the on-line magazine “Focus wine”.

The school:
The classes are from Monday until Friday from 9,30 a.m. to 12,30.

At the end we’ll taste the dishes we prepared together during the lesson. The classes are small and only seasonally fresh ingredients are used. Emiliana will show you how to prepare delicious dishes following the old, traditional Tuscan recipes collected in her books “Lucchesia colta e golosa” (1998) and “La cucina della Lucchesia e della Versilia” (2004): bruschette, soups, pasta, fish, meat dishes and desserts..
Cooking SchoolDuring your stay we will organize different excursions to wine cellars and sausage factories to taste the characteristic food and wine expressions of the area. You may never have heard of a Florentine called Galileo Chini, nor seen any of his works, but you have witnessed the effects of his talent all over the country. In the early part of this century, Chini was largely responsible for introducing the art nouveau style into Italy (where it is usually referred to as "Liberty"). He founded a ceramics factory that created colorful objects which soon made their way into thousands of homes, he painted canvases that were hung in museums ranging from the Uffizi to Rome's Modern Art Gallery, and he designed sets for his close friend Puccini. Chini's stage designs for Turandot are the epitome of the Liberty style; perhaps because of them he was asked to fresco the Royal Palace of the King of Siam. Chini lived in the Orient for two years. When he returned to Italy he built a vacation retreat in Versilia and called it Villa Chini. Its large sunny rooms, delightful ornamentation and century-old park were the height of luxury. Today that villa is a family-run hotel called Historic House “I Pini”. We work and life in this corner of Paradise

Tuscany Painting Course"whater Color"- "Oil Colour" Whether painting is your life or you are very much a beginner you will be inspired.
In such a wonderful setting you may want to spend most of your painting and sketching 'al fresco'. With the help and encouragement of our tutors you'll be amazed at your progress.
Our workshop sessions are experimental.

Here you will be introduced to new ideas, different techniques and media from conventional watercolours to wax and ink. How about collage or papermaking?

There's plenty of feedback aimed at personal development too - our tutors know how to get the best out of their students - in the nicest possible way.
Naturally, it's all very informal. How much or how little you do is entirely up to you. Feel free to pick and choose, to relax and enjoy the Versilia Tuscany.
Lido di Camaiore (between Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi, 20 km far from Lucca and Pisa) - your home throughout your stay. Five minutes outside the walled town of Fivizzano, a side road snakes up the hillside to the medieval hamlet of Caugliano.
You will be staying in an 20th Century 'villa Chini', built for his holiday in the heart of Lido di Camaiore (Versilia Tuscany) by Galileo Chini (1873 - 1956), friend of Giacomo Puccini who also stayed here several time. Recently restaured and updated to full comfort with 20 rooms, maintens the original furniture and 20 original paintings.

Painting Course "oil colours"
This painting course is for everyone. Forget about all the complicated theories you’ve ever heard and learn how to produce paintings with knockout power.
Capture the essential qualities of the Tuscan landscape. The special light, tones and textures that are so famous.
Discover the magic of your own style and express your ideas, paint with passion!
I don’t want to see how well you can paint details, or how skilful your work is, I want you to show me what grips you. The painter who is afraid to make mistakes is not going to have much fun, remember we are not interested in your public image, but your ideas.
When you have transcended the principles of technique, when you reach within yourself, then you will be able to capture a mood and expression that is uniquely yours will you truly make art…“By their works shall you know them”…

Each picture you paint, no matter what, is a portrait of YOU!

We will paint outdoors, beginning each session with a discussion of the scene in front of us. I will talk about composition, light and colour possibilities, bringing attention to the following:

- space (negative and positive)
- how to crop, use dominance, and layer effects
- using lines, shapes and textures to add structure and interest
- awareness of size relationships and perspective.
- How to combine colours and tones

Let’s make paintings that are more than just copies, more than pretty pictures, beyond stories…

We want to release ourselves from slavish technique, from photographic idealism, from proving our perfection.

Painting & Drawing
For those who have always dreamed of making a drawing or to play with the colours on canvas, or to explore the magic of art and its secrets. An expert teacher will guide you in your first steps, introducing the various materials, the importance of observation, in order to arrive at a point were the research will become more intuitive and thus bring you to the creation of your own original works. The courses can be designed to meet your specific needs, and whereas there are no minimum numbers required, the classes will have not more than 6/8 students. The courses will take place in the morning. Coffe and tea are included as well as a lunch in a typical italian trattoria. Our Staff is at your complete disposal for quotations, availability and programs. You could be anywhere in Tuscany, and we dare you not to fantasize about living here.

Tour bike of the Cinqueterre
Today we leave Lido di Camaiore (Coast tuscany)and transfer by train to La Spezia (50 km.) and visit:
- Monterosso - 38km, 650m ?or- 56km, 1300m
Today we enter the Cinque Terre, the Five Lands, isolated from the outside world until about one hundred years ago, when the railway line was built. To our delight the villages and the characteristic Ligurian culture are conserved virtually unchanged. Monterosso has the best beaches of the Cinque Terre villages and the most wine shops, artisan shops, hotels and restaurants. The village is divided into two parts from San Cristoforo hill and the old part of the village, protected by a rock spur, still presents the maritime village. We suggest a visit to the church of Capuchin Father, from which one can admire a wonderful panorama of the village and the promontories which enclose the Cinque Terre. The church has a painting of the Cambiaso and a "Crucifixion" attributed to Van Dyck.

- Monterosso - Active rest-day--riding, hiking, swimming, diving, train rides or boat rides. Here are some highlights for today?s exploration?

Village of Vernazza
Vernazza has a natural pier with an amphitheatre shape making it perhaps the most picturesque village of the Cinque Terre. Vernazza was a Roman installation and had a significant strategical importance during the age of the Maritime Republics in Genoa. It was also famous for its carpenters. We suggest a walk in the village that is dominated by a watch tower and the "Castello" remains. In the small square, overlooking the seaside, there is the church of Santa Margherita di Antiochia.

Village of Corniglia
Placed on a steep promontory, with two exclusive small beaches at its sides, Corniglia can be reached from the railway through a long flight of steps leading to the village (an elevator is being built). One suggestion is a visit to the Church of San Pietro (1334), which is considered one of the most significant monuments in the gothic-ligurian style of the Cinque Terre and a view the Belvedere, an enchanting terrace on the seaside.

Village of Manarola
The village of Manarola is surrounded by vines and is situated along a stream. The wine of Manarola is very famous and the "Via dell? Amore" starts here: an easy to walk, paved path a distance of two kilometres, connecting Manarola to Riomaggiore. In the upper side of the village, don't miss the church of San Lorenzo (1338) with its beautiful rose window dating back to the 14th century.

Village of Riomaggiore
Riomaggiore, which is the most eastern and the nearest village to La Spezia (connected by a scenic road), is named after the stream crossing it. It?s interesting to see the seashore and the upper side of San Giovanni Battista, with its two wonderful twin doors made of marble, which are placed in its southern side and which date before the church itself. Above the village, the Sanctuary of "Madonna di Montenero" stands out, built on the homonymous promontory and which is the last of the gulf the Cinque Terre. The Tramonti area, which goes from Portovenere to Riomaggiore, has been made into National Park of Five Lands. After a stroll on the Via dell?Amore (Lovers? Way) between Manarola and Riomaggiore, dinner on your own is a must. Regular train connections between the villages make it possible to wine and dine at your personal favorite village. So, enjoy a beautiful sunset and a wonderful meal befitting the five lands of romance.

- Portovenere 70km, 500m
Today we traverse high above the five villages of the Cinque Terre as we cycle to the Roman era port town of Portovenere. Utilized in the 11th century by the maritime republic of Genoa as a defensive stronghold during the long Genoa/Pisa war (1119-1290), Portovenere developed the ?fortress-houses? on the seafront that we see today. The commune of Porto Venere includes the villages of Le Grazie and Fezzano. The place name Le Grazie derives from the Monestery of Nostra Signora dell Grazie (Our Lady of Graces), founded by Olivetan monks. In the 18th cenery on the Varignano promontory the Republic of Genoa built a lazaret which was later transformed into a military defence. The place name Fezzano was first recorded in 105 and the layout is typical of Ligurian maritime villages. With the Genoan occupation of Portovenere and resumption of safety at sea, the inhabitants of Fezzano established stable settlements on the seafront. By the early 18th century Fezzano boasted a fleet of forty sailboats. Tonight we?ll enjoy seafood specials on our own at any of the wonderful restaurants in town. Be sure to try the Portovenere mussels (grown just off shore) or the octopus that abounds because of the high concentration of plankton in the waters offshore.

- Bocca di Magra 40km, 390m
The Golfo della Spezia serves as the backdrop for our ride past the shipyards of la Spezia to the Poets Cove. We retrace our route toward la Spezia where a visit to the Museum of Naval Technology, the Public Gardens or the Piazza Sant?Agostino is recommended. The Via del Prione is one of La Spezia's busiest streets, a pedestrian thoroughfare lined with shops, where the young promenade on a Saturday afternoon. A short climb to Pitelli yields a wondrous view of the Poets Cove as we then descend to Lerici, where we can enjoy lunch in the shadows of the poets ? Percy Shelly, Lord Byron and DH Lawrence. The climb from Lerici to Serra is rewarded with superb views of the small villages that dot the coastline. The traverse to Montemarcello brings us to a fork in the road; the left fork takes us to Ameglia before descending to Fiumaretta, while the right fork descends through the forest to Bocca di Magra before cycling on to Fiumaretta. We?ll pack our bikes and relax by the pool before our farewell dinner tonight.
