Palazzo Vecchio

Pitcher & Flaccomio can connect you with the appropriate location and accommodation for your special event. Our services cover venue finding for all occasions, and we have a formidable database of locations for the perfect wedding, meeting, seminar, conference, training course, award ceremony, party, reunion or charity ball.

The historical venues we offer here in Florence, Tuscany and elsewhere, have some distinct advantages over traditional hotels. They are filled with ambiance and atmosphere, not to mention great beauty. An event held in Tuscany will no doubt create indelible memories that last a lifetime. Our services are also appropriate for film, television, fashion and photographic industries seeking historic backdrops, with properties variously available for rent daily, weekly or monthly. Numerous films set in Florence to name a few, “Room with a View” “Tea with Mussolini” “Under the Tuscan Sun” and “Hannibal” which was predominantly filmed in Palazzo Capone on Lungarno Torrigiani right in the centre of Florence.

We would like to make it very clear that Pitcher & Flaccomio does not profess to work as wedding or event planner. We are venue locators. For certain events we would advise using an experienced, local event coordinator. We know many, and will be pleased to introduce you.


In concentrating on your venue needs, Pitcher & Flaccomio will match your requirements to our database. Simply give us your desired wish list. We will undertake a comprehensive search into venue suitability and availability. With the field narrowed, we suggest a thorough site inspection visit on your part.

It will be our pleasure to make appointments and accompany you to the various locations. While many agencies will be happy to take your booking based on photos (which can be inaccurate), we will not. From our long experience, your reunion, wedding, business cocktail party or conference will be more of a success if you have chosen the setting in person.


Pitcher & Flaccomio can find the appropriate location for your business event. A concise outline of your needs will improve our chances of linking you to the appropriate location. Please give some thought to the following aspects: type of event (e.g. conference, seminar), the venue style and location (deluxe or budget), your exact dates and number of guests/delegates, catering, sleeping accommodation needs, and if you require an event management planner.


Steps to a successful event:
Aim for the location (city or countryside) that is most accessible and affordable to the majority of people you want to attend. Downtown Florence provides easy access to individual activities at all hours, of the day, accommodating guests of all ages. On the other hand, a country home could have a pool, tennis court, horse riding facilities close by to entertain the group. Your preferred price range will determine the scale of the accommodations and activities for your family reunion. Once you've chosen a general location (city or country), and set the dates, it's time to select a site for the reunion. The field of possible properties will be narrowed down, at which point, we strongly suggest sending a small search party to Florence. Although you may find it helpful to review the descriptions and photos, for very important events, we highly recommend a short visit to Florence to view the final list of choices. As we have said on numerous occasions, many agencies will be happy to take your booking based on photos, we will not. You and your family will be most comfortable, and you will enjoy your stay much more, if you are settling into a situation you have chosen in person.

Should you wish to hire an event planner, they will be able to assist you with logistics of transportation, cooking lessons, touring or even just feeding a large group of people with different tastes. Luckily Italian food is enjoyed by all from infants to “nonni”. Keep in mind, you don't need to occupy everyone all the time, but a few planned activities will provide an easy way to spend quality time together. So when contacting Pitcher & Flaccomio, give thought to the type of event, the accommodation style, the desired location, exact dates and number of guests. Let us know if an event planner is required so we may give you the appropriate names and addresses.



Why marry in Italy? To celebrate an incredible event in an incredible setting, be it one of Tuscany’s history-filled town halls or amongst vineyards, rolling hills and olive groves. Or perhaps to already find yourself at your honeymoon destination, not to mention that your friends and family will thank you for providing an excellent excuse for a trip to Europe.

“Italy is quite simply one of the most romantic destinations in the world, and the Italians are the most romantic people of the world”.

Pitcher & Flaccomio can offer the option of booking a castle, a Renaissance villa or a romantic love-nest apartment for two, overlooking the rooftops and monuments of Florence. Many country venues have splendid gardens and panoramic vistas of the surrounding countryside. You can rent a villa for an entire week to immerse you and your family in beautiful surroundings before the big day.

In Italy, diverse wedding ceremonies may be organized with different religious institutions including the Catholic Church, Greek and Russian Orthodox Churches, the Anglican and Episcopalian Churches, the Lutheran Church, Jewish Synagogues and others. We will work together with a good wedding planner to find the right religious setting.

With a suitable site chosen, your wedding/event planner will determine the specific services you require for your location including activities and entertainment. An excellent planner can offer professional guest services that will make the logistics easy, helping guests with maps, babysitters and more. They can arrange dinners, tours, excursions and entertainment for your family and friends.

Please note:
A Catholic marriage service is the only Italian religious ceremony allowed to fulfill both religious and civil requirements. All other marriage ceremonies must therefore, have a civil service performed beforehand at a town hall, for the marriage to be legally recognized. Documentation requirements will vary for each ceremony and nationality.

The Anglican Church and the Episcopalian Church are the two predominant Protestant Churches in Italy. The Protestant church allows marriage blessings between couples of mixed religions. Protestant priests will often travel to marry couples on private grounds or outdoors when requested.

A Symbolic Wedding is an exchange of vows between the bride and groom with their family and guests in attendance. You will not need to complete any paperwork, and may hire a non-religious celebrant, or choose a family member or friend to conduct the ceremony of your creation. It is important to note however that these ceremonies are not legally binding and the couple must have a civil ceremony in order to have their marriage recognized by the proper government authorities. The civil ceremony may take place either in Italy or your home country before or after a Symbolic Wedding,

Whatever your choice, the first decision, to marry in Tuscany, does much to assure that the day will be filled with romance, joy and a tradition of celebrating love in all its forms. We as reputable agents can guarantee you the finest of sites, and working together with an equally reputable planner will make your special event a great success.
