About the Event

It’s the stuff dreams are made of... you’re sitting on your stone terrazza overlooking the valley, the sun is starting to set, you’re sipping on a 2016 Brunello you bought in the local enoteca...

It's the dream Canadian couple, Silvana Saccomani & Graham Wetter, made come true!

Today, they own a lovely apartment in the hilltop Renaissance town of Montepulciano, Tuscany.

Join the webinar to find out how they did it!

They will share the lessons learned in their experience of buying & renovating a place in the bel paese, the ups & downs, feeling like a local &, most importantly, would they do it all over again?

Online event in English (via Zoom)
