A national monument, the Villa Garzoni complex is recognized around the world as a symbol of Pescia and of Tuscany. It contains one of Italy`s most important historical villas, which is on a par with Villa d`Este and the Caserta royal palace.

In 1652, the garden was enlarged and equipped with terraces due to its steep hilly location. In addition, stairs, fountains, and statues were added.

The Giorgio Tesi Group celebrates its 40th anniversary. In 1973, Giorgio and Tullio Tesi founded the company on the small family farm. With time, year after year, the baton was passed to their offspring Fabrizio, Claudio, Romeo, and Tiziano, who currently direct the Giorgio Tesi Group. From a few hectares in the 1970s, the company’s production today extends over more than 500 hectares. From the small orders for Pistoia and Tuscany of those years, the company now exports to over 50 countries worldwide.
After Tullio’s untimely death, Giorgio, at great sacrifice, paved the way for growth, looking into the future and investing in his family and its young xpeople.  today he deserves all of our thanks. Special thanks must also go to our mothers Giovanna and Donetta, still exceptional sources of inspiration.

The marvellous colours of the trees in autumn - Photos Nicolò Begliomini
