It feels like I have culture coming out of my ears at the moment, not that that’s a bad thing and the news today of the kick off of an event called ‘Culture in Villa’ is ensuring that never again will I have a boring Saturday.

Starting tonight, the program of events will continue until March 1st. The events seem varied but all are on a literary theme, from the presentation of ‘Ties in Time’ the short stories of Manola Pieruccioni and Carla Querci, to a discussion about ‘The Villages of Massa: A Mountain of Routes’ by Angela M. Fruzzetti and Mark Marando.

All events are taking place at the nineteenth century Villa Schiff. As well as boasting classically beautiful architecture, the white marble villa also has beautiful grounds that are open to the public for post event strolls.
