About Christian Frass

I studied at the University of Vienna School Economics and Business Administration. After completing my studies, I worked for an international auditing company. Subsequently, I was able to gain experience in private equity business. This path led me to being the chief financial officer at a software company, which I managed after a successful reorganization, until its sale to a financial investor. In search of a new challenge, my path led me to Tuscany. My interest aside business and politics has always been cooking. My previous professional experience strengthened me in my confidence to follow my passion.

During her studies in architecture at the University of Vienna School Technology, my wife Barbara studied abroad in Florence. She wrote her diploma thesis on the implementation of the „PINICAL“ shipbuilding system, developed by her father, for three-dimensionally curved roof structures in architecture. This has resulted in very interesting projects, such as the roof structure of the Ferrari Museum in the Italian city of Modena.

Inspired by her two sons, she dealt with the teaching and learning methods of Maria Montessori. From the establishment and operation of her own Montessori school, she gained a lot of experience. She organized mathematics, astronomy and construction courses for children and teachers with specially developed learning materials.

Fate led us to this charming house in Tuscany, in which we fell in love with it from the start.

Christian Frass purchased this chateau / country house in 2015

Why Christian Frass chose Aramo

La Gioiella is something special. We discovered the country house by chance in 2015 on the Internet. At this time it belonged to an English gentleman, who had acquired this house just under a hundred years after its construction in 1881, and transformed it into an English country house without losing the typical character of this tuscany-style house. He has created a beautiful garden with many different roses and flowers. After the acquisition we furnished and renovated the house lovingly.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

On La Gioiella one comes to rest at once. It is surrounded by a 2-hectare property immersed in greenery but close enough to visit the beautiful cities such as Lucca, Florence and Pisa within one day. The time on La Gioiella passes very slowly. One immerses in this beautiful landscape, engrossed in a book from the library, while one reads secluded under an olive tree. Nevertheless one is connected via WLAN with the outside world. A place to visit, dream and enjoy.
