"It was the first time I'd encountered the Etruscan landscape and it had a profound effect on me"
Nic Fiddian-Green,

estate » about » estate » art ART Reschio sits in one of the world's most important artistic regions and the rich heritage of Umbria and Tuscany is found throughout the estate from the ancient carvings and medieval frescoes that have been discovered here during restoration-work, to the beautiful Etruscan bronze figurine unearthed in one of Reschio's olive groves.

The estate has also recently served as inspiration for artist Nic Fiddian-Green, one of the most important sculptors working in Britain today, whose Horse at Water stands 35ft tall at London's Marble Arch. After a chance meeting with Count Antonio in London, he came to Reschio and made a life-size bust of one of the stud's Andalusian stallions, Punto. The design has since been enlarged to stand at Wellington College.
