The Castle and the Labyrinth at Fontanellato village

A full-day art tour discovering the small village of Fontanellato, famous for its Castle surrounded by a moat and the nearby bamboo Labyrinth which houses a rich art collection

You will meet your local, private and licensed tour guide in Parma. Transfer to Fontanellato by private car/minivan. A guided visit to the cute historical centre, which preserves an imposing castle, among its monuments of interest, placed in the middle of the main square, which has been the residence of the noble Sanvitale family for six centuries. The building is rich in pieces of furniture and works of art, such as the “Room of Diana and Actaeon”, frescoed by the mannerist painter Francesco Mazzola, nicknamed Parmigianino.

Time at your leisure for lunch. In the afternoon transfer to the Labyrinth-Museum owned by Franco Maria Ricci, a well-known Italian editor and graphic designer, who exploited 200,000 bamboo plants in order to create a breathtaking route, where you will “get lost”. At the end of that unusual experience, fully immersed in nature, a guided tour over 5 centuries of art history, which reflects the above collector’s taste. Back to Parma by private car/minivan.
