What you'll do

The old great-grandfather Sigismondo, after years of trying, managed to elaborate his sublime version of one of the most ancient Tuscan recipes. However, before giving it to his descendants as his legacy, he thought he had to test them. The recipe is hidden, in fact, in the garden of his country residence, enclosed in a labyrinth of puzzles and riddles. I will need your help to deal with this quest. After showing you an overview of the garden through the lens of my smartphone, we will join our efforts and, while you'll watch exactly what I'll see, live, we will cohoperate juggling between one clue and another. We procede together, just as if you were next to me, while actually being comfortably seated on your sofa with the PC connected to the internet in front of you. You will have to do your best to complete Sigismondo's trials, through codes and encrypted messages. Once you have succeeded in this venture, to thank you for your help, I will share, in addition to the perpetual glory, the tasty recipe that for too many years remained hidden to my palate.

Meet your host, Pietro

Graduated in law and passionate about art and puzzles, I love to travel to discover new people and worlds! For more than 2 years I have been organizing a treasure hunt in the center of Florence ("Treasure hunt in the hidden florence") which entertained over 3000 participants. But a treasure hunt can be played anywhere, as long as enthusiasm and imagination are present. Follow me, then, and you will discover that you're never too grown up to venture out and explore the Mystery.

Our family of two adults and a 17 year old had a great time on this adventure! Pietro was a fantastic host and gave us time to work through the clues ourselves. We have done several in person escape rooms and weren’t sure whether this would feel “too easy” and it felt fun and a bit challenging and like a nice taste of Italy. It was a nice way to have a socially distant adventure together. If we can visit in person one day we will definitely look up Pietro’s treasure hunt, and we hope he will create a new winter adventure we can go on this winter! Great value!

I visited an Italian garden today, looking for clues that would lead me to a fabulous recipe at the end of my adventure. Pietro, our host was warm and welcoming and very patient and helpful if the clues were a bit tricky. What a fun way to take a virtual trip with my family!

since our italy trip couldn't happen this year as planned, it was fun to at least spend an hour interacting with an italian host in his garden and catching a glimpse of the tuscan view. pietro's clues were well thought out; between my mom and i, we were able to solve the various puzzles. we very much enjoyed this experience and look forward to hopefully visiting in person sometime soon!

It was a really great brain work out, and I needed it! I would recommend gathering together a group of people to tackle this adventure! Pietro was great and very helpful and patient with my single brain. but puzzles often require looking at things in a different way and, well, that’s best with multiple minds to help with multiple perspectives. This would be a great team building activity. If you like escape rooms, this is for you, but more kid friendly because it’s searching for something instead of trying to get out of a dire situation! Overall it was a delightful break from the every day against beautiful scenery.
