matrimonio al giardino garzoni

Can you imagine a more solemn, yet pleasant, elegant and evocative setting as the Garzoni Historical Garden for your most special moments? Gushing fountains, flowers, abundant and refined flowerbeds and decorations, and antique statues against the backdrop of the splendid Tuscan hills…

Weddings: say “I do” in the Garzoni Garden For decades, the Garzoni Garden has been one of the most desirable locations for couples who want an extraordinary photo album for their most special day. Now, by agreement with the municipality of Pescia, you can celebrate your civil ceremony in the parterre area of the Garzoni Garden. In addition to the ceremony, on request we can organise musical accompaniment, an aperitif or a lunch, either buffet or served at table. It can also be held indoors in the event of inclement weather.

Ceremonies The large parterre in the Garzoni Historical Garden is a worthy setting for official ceremonies, meetings and gatherings, even in large numbers. The area between the flower beds and the fountains can accommodate hundreds of people at one time, with a possible seating capacity of 200. A stage can be set up in the centre and amplification arranged for speakers or musicians, with areas for information or refreshments. The Villa Garzoni restaurant offers outdoor or indoor services with great elegance and refinement, from the simplest buffets to lunches with waiter service. Official ceremonies held in the Garzoni Garden have included: the 160th anniversary of the establishment of the State Police (a territorial ceremony for the Province of Pistoia, attended by the Commissioner, together with civil and military authorities); national convention of the Touring Club of Italy; Passione Rossa Ferrari Owners’ Club convention.

Events and Shows

Giardino Garzoni SeraThe Garzoni Historical Garden is designed like a huge theatre of greenery and flowers, with the parterre providing the stage and the stalls, crowned by fountains, enclosed from behind by the natural ascent of the hill, and enhanced by the flights of steps and the Water Staircase. This magnificent setting also offers good natural acoustics, which can be amplified, the possibility of setting up a stage and seating, and evocative and effective lighting at night time. It is an ideal place to host theatrical or musical events, fashion shows and concerts (summer months). The calendar is arranged by the National Carlo Collodi Foundation and enhances the identity of the Garzoni Garden as a place of culture and entertainment.
