Pari is located in one of the richest areas of Italy. Siena, with museums, galleries and frescos by Duccio and the Sienese school, is a short drive away. Florence can be reached in just over an hour. Pisa, Rome, Volterra, Assisi, and Lucca are all accessible for a day visit. In addition to the larger Italian cities there are nearby gems such as Pienza - a "rational city" of the Renaissance. Roselle, just south of Pari, was once an important Etruscan city. In addition there historical sites at San Galgano and San Antimo.
We are also privileged to have the cellist, Maestro Hans-Eberhard Dentler, living nearby. Over the next few years Maestro Dentler and his group occasionally give concerts in the area. . Maestro Dentler's researches on Bach's Art of Fugue have recently been published in German and Italian. A brief overview of his research is available on this site.
