Like in a castle, the fairy tale of the most beautiful day.



We returned to Borgo di Celle after discovering, in the two paste editions, the structure guarded by the ancient medieval village and the well-kept gourmet restaurant. Ewe find ourselves again in the presence of chef Gianfranco Termine and with him we have to deepen the formula for weddings that, already we anticipate, has its own identity and strong and defined exclusivity.


In the mind of every bride or in the imagination of every couple who intends to announce and seal its (hopefully) eternal union, there is a unique marriage, unrepeatable and never equal to others.

As already anticipated by the American magazine “Brides” in the summer, the vast majority of respondents declare that the last year and the global pandemic has led them to prefer ceremonies and more studied locations, personalized, with the use of details ‘made to measure’ and with a growing budget dedicated to guests – who must feel perfectly included, pampered and integrated in the celebrations.

Also ‘thanks’ to the restrictions due to Covid 19, the betrothed couple has rediscovered the very intimacy of the most beautiful day as well as its formality, privileging more slender and reserved brigades, however dedicating them an impeccable celebratory circle, from the ‘seating’ to the ‘mise en place’, from ultra-elaborate menus to scenic presentations of dishes: “intricate theories in equipment, refined and incredible cuisine with high-profile wines”. All in the fast-paced, mundane and glamorous atmosphere of an ‘upscale dinner party’, an elegant event to live and remember.

Borgo di Celle with its fantastic facilities – the restaurant “La Confraternita” and the wellness area set in the structure, is the perfect epiphany of this fairy-tale desire.

“We studied ad personam solutions, with menus designed on the expectations of each couple, being able to use the village in its entirety. A dynamic and itinerant wedding, if desired: from the panoramic swimming pool to the ancient square, from the intimate rooms inside to the marvellous terrace of the restaurant. From the aperitif to the buffet appetizer, the body of the reception made of main dishes is held inside – and the wedding cake, weather permitting, is presented and cut in the garden by the newlyweds”, explains the chef manager Gianfranco Termine.

The bride and groom are granted exclusively, whatever an archaic concession to the festivities, the entire structure. A dream with no limits and no matter of time or logistics, to live all in one breath and until the last moment with your closest friends: since the village is isolated as a vessel suspended in the night, you can think of fireworks show even at three in the night!

“We thought of a small Cadeau for couples who come from outside the valley: an all-inclusive package including also a photographer, a representative car and free entrance (the next day) to the Spa for the bride and groom – who can immerse themselves in the warm waters of the pool with whirlpool, try swimming against the current and the jacuzzi, the sauna or Turkish bath and indulge in personalized treatments”, tells us again Termine.

An unpublished Sanzio

Among the novelties, the scientific color reconstruction of the first documented work of Raphael, the Coronation of Saint Nicholas of Tolentino, edited by Francesco Paolo Di Teodoro and Filippo Camerota, visible in the exhibition through a digital installation produced by the Museo Galileo in Florence, and the scientific account of the important restoration work, by the Central Restoration Institute (ICR), the banner of the Brotherhood of SS. Trinità, the only mobile work of the artist left in Umbria, now located at the Municipal Art Gallery of Città di Castello in the same room of the “Martirio di San Sebastiano’, by Luca Signorelli, one of the most studied artists by Raffaello in his youth. The restoration has allowed to fill some of the gaps present in the work and left ‘exposed’ in the previous intervention of 2006, always edited by the ICR.

My Saint Francis of Assisi

In a recent edition of Valley Life (n. 163, spring 2021) we had already told the passionate historical-documentary research of Umberto Pippolini on Francesco di Bernardone, better known as “Saint Francis of Assisi”. The exciting research of Umberto - esteemed professional and inexhaustible creative - ended with the release of the text, already available in the bookstore: “Il Mio San Francesco di Assisi - Alla ricerca della sua unica e vera immagine”.
