Reschio: A Different World. A-Z

A book recounting the history and marvels of Reschio through an alphabet of stories and pictures of an ancient Italian estate beginning a new life.

Reschio Estate sprawls over the hills of Umbria, north of Perugia and not far from Cortona, in the very heart of Italy, with its circular Castello at its highest point. Dating back one thousand years, it was revived when it was bought by Austro-Hungarian expatriate Count Antonio Bolza in the 1980s, and it has now been transformed into a group of villas and a spectacular hotel by his son Count Benedikt, who lives there with his wife Donna Nencia Corsini and their five children.

Reschio Estate is every architect’s dream, and a total work of art. It spans nearly 1,330 hectares of land, and today half of the nearly fifty abandoned farmsteads have been transformed into beautiful villas. The 1940s tobacco warehouse has become the Tabaccaia, where the vibrant architectural and design studio brings Benedikt’s designs to life, with furniture and lighting made by local artisans. Ancient forests and meadows have been restored to their wild state, protecting the animals living in their natural habitat.
