Giaridno Pescigola - Massa

Springtime in Lunigiana in 2012

Events at Villa La Pescigola

In the extreme north-east of Tuscany, in the Lunigiana area, is a villa of austere beauty, at once mysterious and romantic. It's called Villa La Pescigola and this year, as in years past, the villa will host a celebration of the arrival of spring and Easter with the most abundant flowering of daffodils in a private Italian park.

Located in Fivizzano, Villa La Pescigola will welcome visitors to the Daffodil Festival from March 25 to May 1 with more than 150,000 Narcissus of 400 varieties, as well as tulips, some of which are very scented and others which are antiques, together with new species in pink, salmon and coral colors.

There is also a maze, unique in Italy, with more than 50,000 Narcissus in full bloom. The labyrinth is located at the foot of the formal Italian garden and its geometric forms are composed of hedges of daffodils with boxwood borders.

Villa La Pescigola enjoys a sunny and panoramic position; it is built in the imposing horseshoe shape typical of a Tuscan villa, and has a large courtyard, one side of which is the Oratorio dell'Angelo Custode. The sober elegance of the tiled courtyard of Pognana is embellished with a portico that contains a spring water fountain complete with nymphs.
