Every September I organize a week-long painting holiday for artists in my art league, here in the Berkshires in MA. My friend, Alma Ortolan, who gives fresco workshops in her Palazzo, in Vittorio Veneto, organizes all the land arrangements for me. Vittorio is the next town north of Conegliano, and that whole area is so lovely and untouristy. Conegliano and Treviso are especially interesting towns. Try to get to the Villa Maser (Villa Barbero), in nearby Maser. It is a beautiful Palladian villa, still in private hands, but open to the public. Veronese painted all the frescos inside, which made Palladio furious, as the Barbero brothers could not stop talking about the beautiful frescos and said little about the building or architecture.
