Trying to find the name and contact info of an art gallery store
I was just in Pienza a few weeks ago and I brought a breautiful painted box from a small art gallery owned by a man. This gallery was entirely filled with just this man's paintings of the Tuscany region. He gave me his card with the contact info, but I lost it. I am wondering if anybody who frequently visits Pienza or lives there can maybe help me locate this place and find the contact info. I remember that it was located next to a souvenir shop and before the large square area with a cathedral.
Re: Trying to find the name and contact info of an art gallery store
This is just a guess, but there is an art and precious things store near the Duomo - "Caratelli Beatrice Arte E Preziosi". The address is
"10, CORSO IL ROSSELLINO
53026 Pienza (SI)
t. 0578 748005 "
Corso Rossellino is the main drag that bisects the old town, running through (or by) Piazza Pio II (the piazza that the Duomo and 2 famous palazzi are on).
Note that next door (at number 7, Corso Il Rossellino) is "CARATELLI BEATRICE ANTICHITA'" (an antique store). Their phone number is 0578 748775.
Allegedly, if you go to http://www.pagine-mail.it/hitemail.php?rag=ANTICHITA'%20CARATELLI%20BEATRICE%20ANTICHITA' you will be able to send an email to the antiques store - I have no idea if this will work...
Travel Tips for Pienza
Love is all around you in Pienza
Pienza is a romantic place to visit. Not only is it a pretty little town to explore, but the lovely views from the town walls are the perfect place for a smooch. And to find your way to the walls, why not walk along Via dell'Amore or Via del Bacio, which both run off Corso Il Rossellino - these street names roughly translate as Street of Love and Street of Kissing.

Wonderful Abbey Nearby.
About 20 km northwest from Pienza you may have a rest in Abbazia d. Monte Oliveto Maggiore. It is an very old (beginning 1319) abbey accepting the rules of St. Benedict. Its incredibly located on a long ridge high above a valley of the "crete senesi" mountains. You can see the complete location from some spots of the street. Driving towards it, you first arrive at a tower with a drawbridge. Its the abbey entrance. There is a good, payable restaurant with tuscan food. Walking through a cypress alley, you reach the abbey itself. It has an impressing cloister with 36 frescoes (about 1500) and a very nice church. An impressing, quiet place, which also offers a guest house for a ruminant stay. Phonenumber on the website.
The Cathedral (1)
Of the left of the cathedral there is the octagonal bell tower built in travertino. On the bell there are three couplets of the pope Pio II. Immediately after the construction of the church this was subject to yielding in the part of the apse. Following restaurations have allowed to protect the cathedral from possible yielding.
The Corso Rossellino is the thorn of the Medieval suburb that connect the two principal gateway of the town. Along its sides you can see the beautiful Palazzo Ammannati built in the fourteenth century for the cardinal Giacomo Ammannati. Another interesting building is the one belonged to Salomone Piccolomini with to the first floor has got gothic bifore and graffiti.
