Meet our delightful Italian village characters,

each with their own unique story to tell.



Luca, the gondola man lives here with his dear friends Marcella, Isabella, and Antonio. Every day, as he glides through the serene canals, he feels a deep connection to the soul of this village and its people. The laughter and joy that fill the air are like music to his ears.

“Being a gondola man is not just a job for me; it is a passion that runs through my veins. The gentle sway of the gondola, and the gentle whispers of the water, it all fills me with a sense of peace and purpose.

Marcella, Isabella, and Antonio, they are not just my friends; they are my family. We share stories, laughter, and the simple pleasures of life that make each day special.”



Isabella, is a passionate tarantella dancer from the Montecasino Village.

“My days are filled with laughter and joy, shared with dear friends who are like family to me. But in my heart, there is a special place reserved for Antonio, the handsome young man who has captured my affection. With each step I take in the dance, I express the love and longing that fills my soul for him.”



Meet Marcella, the unofficial Montecasino painter. She meets her friends on the cobblestone streets, painting the beauty of our beloved Italia, as they embrace the simple joys of life.

“But I have a secret, a passion that ignites my soul and drives my artistry to new heights. When the moon rises over the vineyards and olive groves, I retreat to my studio, where my true masterpiece awaits.Experience the magic of our Village through my eyes, where every brushstroke tells a story of love, loss, and the eternal beauty of our homeland.”



Antonio, a passionate musician and a hopeless romantic…

“I live along the cobblestone streets with my dear friends, surrounded by the sweet melodies of our music echoing through the narrow alleys. But ah, amore! I can’t seem to resist the allure of falling in love, my heart dancing to a new tune with each passing day.

I serenade the Bella signoras under the moonlit sky, hoping to capture their hearts with my melodies.”



Meet Julietta, a passionate opera singer, with a voice as powerful as the rolling hills of Tuscany.

“I dream of gracing stages around the world. While I adore my quaint village, my heart yearns to explore distant lands and captivate audiences far and wide. Every note I sing carries the essence of Italia, but my spirit is restless, eager for new adventures and experiences.”



“I am known far and wide for mouth-watering pasta dishes and delectable desserts that will make your taste buds dance with joy.

But there’s one thing you should know about me – I am as clumsy as a cat on a tightrope! You’ll often find me tripping over my own feet or dropping plates with a crash. Despite my clumsiness, my passion for cooking knows no bounds.”



A man of great importance in our quaint little village – Don Pedro.

He is not just any villager, no, he owns this land.

“I have resided here in Montecasino Village for my entire life, watching over the cobblestone streets and olive groves with a keen eye and a firm hand. With a commanding presence and a heart as big as the Tuscan sun, I am a man you don’t want to cross. But fear not, for I also have has a warm smile and a friendly greeting for all who pass through our beloved village.”



Rosa, is the Nonna of Montecasino Village. 

“I’ve lived here my whole life, but oh, how things have changed! The young ones rush by with their fancy gadgets, too busy for a friendly chat on my porch swing. Now, it’s all rush, rush, rush.

But fear not, I still keep the spirit of our village alive with my stories and secrets. Gossip? Maybe a little, but always with love in my heart. Come sit with me, share a biscotti, and let me tell you about the days when time moved slower, and our bonds were stronger.”
