At Monteverdi Tuscany, we believe that engagement with the arts makes our lives richer, deeper and more meaningful. With this firm belief in mind, we are proud to present our 2017 Arts and Humanities program – all free of charge to our guests. The Monteverdi Art Gallery is a place for international artists to exhibit new works and spend time in the historical and inspiring village of Castiglioncello del Trinoro. Curated by Sarah McCrory, the gallery hosts both group exhibitions / thematic shows and solo exhibitions, talks and events.
All exhibitions are free and open to guests and the public.
