Cooking Class and Historic Glass Atelier Tour
The tour starts with a cooking class at Alla Madonna del Piatto near Assisi.
After the cooking class, travel to Perugia to visit a glass atelier which was founded in 1860 in a medieval palazzo in Perugia. Well-known as masters of stained glass, the owners had created windows for some of Umbria's most famous churches: the Cathedral of Orvieto, Santa Chiara and Santa Maria degli Angeli in Assisi, San Domenico and San Lorenzo in Perugia .
The studio is a treasure trove or antique furniture and art, as well as books, a whole collection of pigments, photographs, sketches and a magnificent life-size portrait of Queen Marguerite of Savoy which is of course, made in glass.
The visit, run by family members of the founders, will give you a fascinating glimpse into the history of their masterpieces and the technical process of glass staining and painting to the finest detail.
