Amazing Val Trebbia and Val Tidone – a haven for the landscape artist!!!

We have 5 castles, 3 valleys, 2 rivers, Roman bridges, rolling hills, villas, farm houses, hamlets raw landscapes, mountain views all 15 minutes drive from our place in Italy.  Piacenza is just amazing because the landscape is truly rural and not overly coutured like for example Tuscany.

A round trip of 20 minutes covers enough vistas to paint for 50 years – hundreds and hundreds… at every turn.
