Città della Pieve - Perugia
From 13th c. the Medival hill town, Città della Pieve has been cultivating saffron primarily for dyeing fabrics. At that time the town was an important center for the production of cloth known then as crimson cloth derived from the deep red of the saffron flower. In our orchard we use the crimson cloth to keep birds away... The client asked for a transformation of their entire family estate. Still in production this has included reconfiguring roads, designing and constructing orchards, gardens, the pool, exterior dining and living, and builidng a multiple-terraced site.
