She’ll prepare your table with her exclusive tableware designs, entirely hand-crafted and hand-painted in Italy by highly skilled artisans.

Everything magically settled and presented on Palazzo Taverna’s roof top terrace with one of the most stunning views in the heart of Rome!

Violante Guerrieri Gonzaga lives in her family house Palazzo Taverna, in the center of Rome, with a unique and simply astonishing terrace looking on the dome of San Pietro….

Violante has attended the Accademia Belle Arti di Roma: she is an artist, painter and a photographer.

Violante’s menus are the result of a long research about ancient recipes of her house and of the cooks of her family.

Her recipes fly from the top north of Italy to the bottom south and touch all the different Italian regions.

A unique Italian experience, about lifestyle, Italian culture and passion for food.

This is an exclusive experience created by Violante selected groups of people coming in Rome that want to feel and taste “the eternal city” in a very private and different way, as “guests, not tourists”…
