My name is Francesca and I was born in Poppi, Tuscany. I studied communication and mass media in Urbino, London and Copenhagen. I worked as a journalist in Venice for 4 years. Then I decided to came back to Poppi to rent the villa, to work in our family farm and, at the same time, to write for art magazine. Gigi, my dad, and Novella, my mum, are the bosses of the farm. We decided to start with Agriturismo (to rent a villa in a farm) 5 years ago. I live with Andrea, my husband, since 8 years.
Francesca Panci purchased this farmhouse in 1985
