I am Lucia
I am lucky to have inherited this fantastic estate which has been in my family for generations. It was my great grandmother who made her money from being a successful scientist who originally bought La Dogana and developed her entrepreneurial vision of creating an agricultural business.
Her daughter, my grandmother, was also an entrepreneur and was the first woman to learn to be a pilot in Italy!
La Dogana was originally the Customs house between Tuscany and Umbria and many famous people passed through it’s doors including Michelangelo, Hans Christian Andersen and Lord Byron.
I continue the line of female entrepreneurs of my family and after university I decided to return to the family Estate and develop it further into family holiday apartments and a wedding venue.
I love the countryside and my animals and each year I adopt more furry friends who need a home! I love welcoming guests and making them feel that la Dogana is their Italian home and become part of its history.discover my behind-the-scenes life!
