Hello my friends I am so excited to share some updates on our Italian Palace- Palazzo Ricci!
About a year and half ago we bought a 250 year old Italian Palace in Casoli, Italy. It is gorgeous but needs a lot of work. You can read how it all began here. We were just about to start refurbishing the palace but then Covid hit. After lots of delays things are really starting to progress.

Palazzo Ricci palace surrounded by scaffolding
Our restoration team began to get all the scaffolding all around the Palazzo so that construction could begin! It seems like we have been waiting a very long time to see this kind of progress. I cannot wait to get back to Italy to see this with my own eyes! We are hoping to get back over there in May, fingers crossed!
