We’re off to California in a week. Our pro-bono client Spannocchia is having a series of fun raisers on the west coast. Spannocchia is the fine big non profit estate outside Siena you may have noticed here on these blog pages.
If you are going to be in LA on Sunday, March 13th or San Francisco on Tuesday, March 15th and would like to go to a party all about Italy, check out the details in the full invitation here.
Spannocchia was written up in two full-color pages of the LA Times in the last year and their phone has been ringing off the hook ever since. So that begins to explain their attraction a bit. But what is the big hook that draws so many Californians to Italy? Weather’s the same isn’t it? And the food very Mediterranean, olive oil based, right? For us New Englanders a trip to Italy has obvious benefits, we want in out of the darn cold. And it is just a short-ish plane ride from one side of the pond to the other. California is twice as far away and yet so many nice Californians wash up on Tuscany and Umbria’s shores we have to be hyper curious.
We’ll let you know what we find out and report back.
