This is a view of the front of Borgo San Fedele, the Tuscan Renaissance Center, where we stayed and painted. Michael Ferris, the wonderful program manager for Il Chiostro, who assisted and led our workshop on all of our outings, ably translated many things for us, and explained that borgo means a small collection of houses, buildings, dwellings. Not exactly a village, nor a hamlet--a borgo could be any small collection of structures. To the left are some of the rooms particpants stayed in, distant left is the refectory, center is the church, where we conducted our classes, and to the right is the reception area, that leads to a back patio that looks out over vineyards.
To the right is Brooke Randell's sketch of that view.
To the left is Mary Heath's painting of the double-arched belfry of San Fedele.
