Online PR News – 25-July-2011 – – The Tuscan Renaissance Center in the Chianti hills outside of Siena in Italy is available as a facility for workshops, retreats and seminars. It is a restored 12th century monastery now with all modern conveniences. The TRC is easily adaptable for all kinds of programs.
The facility has studios equipped for arts workshops (painting, photography, writing, music or sculpture), large gathering spaces for seminars and small classroom spaces for breakout sessions. There is a modern industrial kitchen where our Tuscan chef prepares all meals and a large “refectory” or dining room. When the weather is nice the large terrace overlooking the olive groves and Tuscan hills is ideal for dining al fresco or outdoor meetings.
The Tuscan Renaissance Center is a unique meeting of a historic landmark and exquisite modern day comfort. The monastery, dating back to the 12th century, was meticulously restored using traditional building methods and all original materials. Today, the monastery remains true to its original spirit, rich architectural detail.
The 17 rooms and suites where participants are housed have lovely modern bathrooms, screened windows, air conditioning, period furniture, wi-fi internet service, satellite television and minibar, all designed to perfectly compliment the medieval surroundings. Accommodations are spacious shared double rooms or junior suites. Each room, because it was converted from the original structure of the monastery without altering the building, is unique in shape. Furnishings and decor were selected to coordinate with the historic, subdued feeling of the monastery, but in a comfortable, modern style. All rooms have two beds that can be separated into twins or combined into one large matrimonial.
The Tuscan Renaissance Center is the combined skills of Linda and Michael of Il Chiostro joining together with Nicolo and Renata of San Fedele to produce a unique and inspiring environment rooted in the traditional Tuscan values of beauty, great food, an appreciation for nature and the value of community.
The original soaring chapel is now used as a large art studio or workshop space. The monks` refectory, where a lost 16th century fresco was uncovered during renovation, is now the dining room connected to a state-of-the-art kitchen and the old stone cantinas where they stored their wine have been transformed into studio and classroom space.
