More Description

"Please note: there are two different book jackets with the exact same interior content."In the serene Northern California town of Calistoga, a splendid villa is fronted by stately wrought-iron gates and a small sign reading "Carlo Marchiori, Maestro d'¬?Arte." Ca'¬?toga, as the Palladian-style villa is named, is the home and workshop of Carlo Marchiori, a world-renowned Venice-born artist. In FESTA VENEZIANA A CA'¬?TOGA, Marchiori serves as tour guide, leading us room by room through this live portfolio, providing deeply personal and mysterious explanations for the wonders that abound in his gallery-like residence. Sixteenth century-style frescoes hang in the main salon, hand-painted stone floors accent the library, and antler and bone sculptures embellish the Native American room. Roman ruins, Thai temples, a seashell-encrusted grotto, and an open-air theater sit in archaic splendor on this dreamscape-turned-landscape. A spontaneous and creative expression of his life and work, Ca'¬?toga is Marchiori'¬'s artistic utopia-a work in progress that is a brilliant spectacle to behold. Featuring a fantastic repertoire of ceiling murals, wall decorations, folding screens, painted furniture, ceramics, cast stone garden ornaments, and myriad objets d'art inspired by Greco-Pompeiian mythology, Baroque theater, Venetian carnival, and commedia dell'¬?arte themes. Marchiori offers tours of Ca'¬?toga on Saturday mornings from May to October. Tour tickets and art can be purchased at the Ca'¬?toga Galleria D'¬?Arte, located in Calistoga, California.
