Under the Stars

Not far from Florence, in the enchanting backdrop of the Tuscan hills, you find the Tenuta Poggio Casciano agriturismo. This is home to Locanda Le Tre Rane-Ruffino and to the Agriresort Poggio Casciano. Here, among the Renaissance architecture and the stunning wooded park, Ruffino presents Sotto le Stelle (under the stars): tasting sessions, poetry performances, cinema and live music – all designed so we can rediscover the magic of being together.
The venue for all this is the Park of Poggio Casciano, which has been prepared for the purpose by the architecture studio QART. Wooden stages, wrought-iron tables, trees hung with light installations: everything is designed to evoke a spellbinding atmosphere.

Sotto le Stelle
presents a rich programme of entertainments, starting on the first of June and running all the way until the end of September. Snacks, aperitivos and light dinners will be laid on by the proven chefs who work in the kitchens of the agriturismo’s restaurant, Le Tre Rane – Ruffino.
