Tour of Enchanting Ca’Toga Offered by Napa Valley Museum

YOUNTVILLE, CA – Step back in time for an enchanting tour through Roman ruins, whimsical and

 classic Greek antiquities and visually delightful trompe d’oeil artwork at Ca’Toga, the villa of famed

Calistoga Artist Carlo Marchiori, January 11 from 11 am. to 12:30 p.m. 

Visitors will meet at the Napa Valley Museum to take a short van ride to Ca’Toga, where they will

have a guided tour through the villa and grounds.  Upon their return to the Museum, visitors will be able to

 view Marchiori’s current exhibition, “Gone With the Wine: Paintings, Sculptures and Ceramics Inspired by the Dionysian Culture of the Napa Valley”. The exhibition is a humorous exploration using the Pulcinella character from the Italian Commedia dell’Arte.   

Ca’Toga transports visitors to a European-style setting in Napa Valley.  Each room of the villa

is decorated in a theme of visual delight, from the Palladian-inspired entrance to the Bacchus, Venus and cupids romping across the walls in the interpretation of an ancient dream.

            Icarus, Minotaur, Prometheus, Oedipus and the Sphinx are at home in the Greek Room adjacent to the Southwest and cow-themed bedrooms.  On the grounds, water pours from thermal spouts depicting Venus and Hercules into the Roman pools and tub. An archway inspired by the Pulcinella character greets visitors entering the grounds near a bust of the playful Pan.

The tour is limited and visitors are encouraged to contact the museum office as soon as possible for reservations. Prices are $25 for members; $30 for non-members.

The Napa Valley Museum is located at 55 Presidents Circle in Yountville. Take the Yountville/Veterans Home exit off Highway 29 and follow the tree-lined street to Presidents Circle. Turn right and the museum is directly on the right.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Fee: $30.00
