Villa I Tatti

The 17th-century Tuscan farmhouse was purchased by art connoisseur Bernard Berenson in 1907 and transformed into an Italian-style villa complete with a formal garden. Berenson left the property and its collection to his beloved Harvard University in 1959. Today the Villa I Tatti is the “The Harvard Center for Italian Renaissance Studies.” It houses a research library of some140,000 volumes and a collection of 250,000 photographs, as well as a collection of early Italian, Chinese and Islamic art. Buona visita!
