Don't hesitate to contact Cornelia directly and discuss all possibilities!













Cornelia has set up her studio close to Montefiascone near lake Bolsena and at the crossroad of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio. The calm environment of the countryside and surrounded by nothing but nature creates a perfect atmosphere for painting.




Montefiascone is located on top of the highest peak of the Volsini Mountains, from which we can enjoy an enchanting view of Lake Bolsena, and is situated on the Via Cassia in the heart of a farming area where grapevines are of particular importance. A road winding along the hillside links the town with the lake.








Lake Bolsena is one of the magnificent sights of Italy. It has been considered a lake of great spiritual importance…. and mystery, for thousands of years. It was the sacred lake of the Etruscans and it still has a powerful  effect on anybody who visits its shores. The painter William Turner passed by here in 1795 and he like us, would  have marvelled at the the magnificent light, the clearness of the air even in high summer, and the picturesqueness of its lakeside villages such as Capodimonte and Bolsena town.
