Us to the QueenBee 

Maria Renata has an uplifting energy that is so contagious. Her style is chic, elegant and full of beautiful rich surprises. She is truly interested and loves life and people...inspiring us all. And homes she decorates are luxurious, comfortable and make you feel so happy. I think it all comes from her kindness, humor and ability to be so thoughtful about others.
— Kelly Rutherford, actress of GOSSIP GIRL
She is passionate, quick-witted, gritty, humorous. Ready to share with you the wonders of the past.
— Marco Ghiotto, Publisher of my kind of woman
My sister Joyce and I were fortunate to be the guest of Maria Renata and Luigi for a summer. I still use the recipes we learned during this magical vacation and have so many wonderful memories of their friendship and hospitality. Truly deserves the title of Italy’s Martha Stewart. Love you sweet lady!

Maria Renata welcomed our family to her villa in Viterbo 12 years ago with her trademark style and graciousness. She was so generous with her time and taught us how to make true Italian risotto during our stay. Her deep appreciation for all things beautiful and living a life filled with luxury are to be admired but in the end, Maria Renata is simply someone who radiates warmth and joy to all she meets.
— Meghan Kirk Jordan, Guest
I was fortunate enough to be taken to Villa Rossi Danielli and touched to the core. The taste level in landscape, home furnishing and food was beyond A+. But more than the taste, everything was chic at the same time, it was comfortable. If you have the chance...go!
