Details
Visit one of 72 ancient towers that made San Gimignano famous and only 14 of which have survived to the present day. Begin your visitor experience by watching an evocative video, projected onto the walls of the attic, that covers the history, identity and legends of San Gimignano. Then, on the main floor, furnished with original pieces that have been restored with great care, discover the daily life of the owners of the house. Experience a world suspended in the past by looking at photographs, private memories, objets d'art and collections. Marvel at the Montelupo pottery collection and paintings by Guido Peyron – a renowned Florentine artist who was also Lidya’s uncle.  Visit the Campatelli Tower-House and take a journey back in time, set against more than 1000 years of history. Don't miss a visit to our shop. You will find a wide choice of handmade and local handcrafts. What's more your shopping and visit will help our non-profit foundation to preserve the Italian heritage.
