What you'll do

The old great-grandfather Sigismondo, after years of trying, managed to elaborate his sublime version of one of the most ancient Tuscan recipes. However, before giving it to his descendants as his legacy, he thought he had to test them. The recipe is hidden, in fact, in the garden of his country residence, enclosed in a labyrinth of puzzles and riddles. I will need your help to deal with this quest. After showing you an overview of the garden through the lens of my smartphone, we will join our efforts and, while you'll watch exactly what I'll see, live, we will cohoperate juggling between one clue and another. We procede together, just as if you were next to me, while actually being comfortably seated on your sofa with the PC connected to the internet in front of you. You will have to do your best to complete Sigismondo's trials, through codes and encrypted messages. Once you have succeeded in this venture, to thank you for your help, I will share, in addition to the perpetual glory, the tasty recipe that for too many years remained hidden to my palate.

-- Cost is intended per person.

Other things to note
I recommend using the PC to participate in this activity. Since you have to spot small details, the bigger the screen the better the image.

Graduated in law and passionate about art and puzzles, I love to travel to discover new people and worlds! For more than 2 years I have been organizing a treasure hunt in the center of Florence ("Treasure hunt in the hidden florence") which entertained over 3000 participants. But a treasure hunt can be played anywhere, as long as enthusiasm and imagination are present. Follow me, then, and you will discover that you're never too grown up to venture out and explore the Mystery.

We had so much fun! We did this to kick off our stay-home thanksgiving and were joined by a young couple. This experience was family-friendly, creative and engaging. My sons are excited to try out the recipe!

My partner and I very much enjoyed our treasure hunt experience. We are grateful to Pietro for inviting us into his garden. He did a fantastic job of keeping a diverse group of players equally engaged and through his thoughtful guidance we finished right on time. We highly recommend this experience and look forward to making the secret recipe!

Thank you Pietro for a wonderful experience. My twin sons celebrated their birthday with their friends from all over the world, searching together for the secret recipe. They all enjoyed the challenging riddles and puzzles and cooking the recipe was an added bonus. Super delicious. We highly recommend!

This magical Treasure Hunt is the sweet escape that my husband and I needed during this long year of isolation. We had planned our first trip to Italy this year but due to the pandemic it was canceled, but getting immersed in Pietro’s garden gave us the taste we were craving. Gorgeous landscapes, awesome storytelling, brain teasers that will keep you guessing and laughing and lastly a special recipe that we cannot wait to try. Highly recommended experience for those want to be transported to Italy and have a great time!
