What to expect

We will welcome you on Friday afternoon at our organic farm for a full immersion in the hand rolled pasta. You will have the opportunity to take part in engaging cooking classes on typical Tuscan fresh pasta by hand. You will stay overnight directly at our farmhouse in Maremma!

Maria Livia, an authentic and genuine cook, will be waiting for you in her kitchen to share an ancient knowledge: the art of making pasta by hand.

After a brief introduction to the raw materials, our 6-hour practical course on typical Tuscan pasta will teach you how to make:

  • The dough and the pastry (Saturday morning, 10-12 a.m.)
  • Potato gnocchi (Sunday morning, 10-12 a.m.)
  • Grandmother’s Tuscan pici (Sunday afternoon, 3-5 p.m.)

We will end the practical course to learn how to make pasta by hand with a tasting lunch. We will all taste the pici and other dishes we have cooked together.

The food experience includes a two-night stay at the farm (B&B in double or single room) and a dinner based on typical Maremma dishes.


The Food Expert: my family has been taking care of these lands in the Maremma and their fruits for over half a century. Our organic farm is a 240-hectare estate on the Tuscan gentle hills near Saturnia hot springs, Roccalbegna, between Mount Amiata and the Argentario Coast.

In the farm we have been breeding in the wild the Maremmana Cattle (Slow Food Presidium), Cinta Senese pigs and Apennine sheep. At the agriturismo you can take part in engaging cookery courses on typical Tuscan hand rolled pasta. You will learn how to make Tuscan pici and you can stay overnight on the farm to fully enjoy the relaxation of the Maremma!

My family has been taking care of these lands in the Maremma and their fruits for over half a century.

Our organic farm is a 240-hectare estate on the Tuscan gentle hills near Saturnia hot springs, Roccalbegna, between Mount Amiata and the Argentario Coast.

In the farm we have been breeding in the wild the Maremmana Cattle (Slow Food Presidium), Cinta Senese pigs and Apennine sheep. In order to ensure the genuineness and quality of our products, we bring our beef, pork and sheep meat in the workshop inside the farm. We use cellars that are particularly suitable for the ripening of meats, allowing the production of cured meats with artisanal techniques and without preservatives.

Maremmana Cattle

This native breed has large lyre-shaped horns, a greyish coat and it is extraordinarily robust. The Maremmana adapts well to difficult environments and cannot be kept indoors, but must roam freely: the fact that the cattle range in the wild contributes to their well-being and makes their meat especially flavourful and wholesome.

In our “agriturismo”, you will enjoy a familiar and rustic farm stay to rediscover the art of living in harmony with nature, savouring genuine Tuscan hospitality and delicious dishes from the Maremma.
