De Gustibus is pleased to present a special event and the first in a new series of collaborations with Villa Caruso Bellosguardo, an amazing historic home not far from Lastra a Signa

DEGUSTANDO CARUSO

The name Villa Caruso Bellosguardo derives from the incredible view it has thanks to its location in the Florentine Hills (Bello= nice, sguardo = view, look). The building actually dates back to its acquisition by the Pucci family in 1540!! They hired the architect and antiquarian Giovanni Antonio Dosio to transform what was essentially a farm into a noble home and park with natural and artificial aspects. At the end of the 19th century the villa passed into the hands of the Campi family; then in 1906 was purchased by the singer Enrico Caruso. At his death the villa changed hands many times, finally purchased by the Gucci family in 1990 and then by the city of Lastra a Signa in 1995.Dinner is on a late-fall theme and all food will be of course related to its perfect wine, chosen from amongst De Gustibus producers. Dinner will be held in one of the villa’s rooms and accompanied by a guitar duo playing tango and ethnic music.
