Gran Tour, Viaggio nei luoghi del FAI

Guido was the host of the four episodes television series “Grand Tour: un viaggio nei luoghi del FAI” (aired Spring 2013), one of the first commissions of the new SKY ARTE HD channel. The documentary featured Guido visiting some of the most beautiful properties of FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano) and discovering their history as he talked with landlords and art historians. At the end of each episode Guido translate the essence and all key artistic and architectural elements of each property in a unique photograph.

Episode 1: Villa Necchi Campiglio (Milan), a true jewel right at the heart of Milan designed by the great architect Piero Portaluppi.

Episode 2: Villa e Collezione Panza (Varese), home to one of the most important contemporary art collections in the world.

Episode 3: Villa Fogazzaro Roi (Valsolda), where Antonio Fogazzaro wrote (and based) his renowned book “Piccolo mondo antico” (or “The Little World of the Past”).

Episode 4: Villa dei Vescovi (Torreglia), an enchanting pre-Palladian villa located on the Colli Euganei, very much loved throughout the centuries by artists and writers.
