#connectcollaboratecreate in the Tuscan countryside

An exciting day in Modena touring the city, followed by lunch at an artisanal balsamic purveyor. The business is located in a stunning villa in Reggio Emilia. The owners are two sisters. They will tour you through the ancient barrels of balsamico, and then guide you through a tasting of the most exquisite selections of balsamic vinegars in the world. These inspired entrepreneurs will tell you about their journey creating a business that started as a family hobby. It’s a wonderful success story.

Sought after wordsmith, calligrapher, and designer Betty Soldi (@bettysoldistudio ) will be leading a morning INKSPERIENCE in the La Fortezza classroom and joining us for lunch. Materials will be provided. From the heart of Florence, Italy Betty Soldi’s uniquely original calligraphic style merges a heritage of design references with modern intellect for emotionally compelling branding, graphic design communication, lifestyle objects, stationery and creative collaborations, drawing in like-minded skilled associates for custom projects and sensorial ‘inksperiences’.

In signature TSC style, our group will relax and recharge our entrepreneurial spirit and #connectcollaboratecreate on the expansive terrace and pool overlooking the Tuscan countryside with coffee, cocktails and plenty of camaraderie.
