About the Host, Diana
Sono nata a Varese e dopo il Liceo Classico ho vissuto per alcuni anni a Londra, dove mi sono specializzata in Fotografia Fine Art. Al mio rientro in Toscana ho acquistato e ristrutturato Villa Podernovo appena fuori Siena dove, con mio fratello Tito, offriamo soggiorni indipendenti e anche in B&B. Villa Podernovo è anche il luogo ideale per celebrare il vostro romantico matrimonio in Toscana! I nostri matrimoni, sia religiosi che civili, sono molto apprezzati per la loro raffinata e semplice eleganza. Come fotografa, collaboro con National Geografic per l' organizzazione di workshop internazionali di fotografia e scrivo per la rivista Zoom.
