Paola Turci and Francesca Pascale are about to say yes: at 5pm, to the “Palazzo dei Priori” of Montalcino, in the province of Siena, will celebrate their civil union in front of the mayor Silvio Franceschelli. The singer should arrive aboard his Audi A3while the ex-girlfriend of Silvio Berlusconi on a white Jaguar: one of the few known details of this very armored day. In their style given that, since that day when they were photographed as a couple for the first time during a holiday in Cilento (four months after the end of the story with the former premier), the two have always kept their relationship very private. .
The castle of Velona
It is also for this reason that to celebrate they have chosen a place away from prying eyes: the banquet will be held in the exclusive Velona Castle, resort 15 kilometers from Montalcino overlooking the Unesco heritage hills of the Val d’Orcia, housed in a 10th century castle. It has been under surveillance for days and, apart from those who have booked, does not allow anyone to enter.
The name of the resort had appeared in a press indiscretion and to confirm it – involuntarily – it was Francesca Pascale with some published photos in his stories of Instagram the night between 1 and 2 July: they are photos in which you can clearly see the details of the pool.
On the other hand, just to Dolce Vita Pool Restaurant, one of the three restaurants of the Castello di Velona – as he says Republic – the just 30 guests were greeted on their arrival by tables decorated with ears of wheat, sunflowers, hydrangeas and roses for a welcome dinner. It is not yet known, however, in which space of the resort the wedding dinner will be held: what is certain is that preparing food will be the executive chef Riccardo Bacciottiniarrived at the Velona Castle after working at the three Michelin star Noma in Copenhagen, and that there will be many vegan proposals on the menu, in line with the diet of the two brides.
The kitchen is one of the flagships of Castello di Velona, which also produces Brunello, Montalcino and organic oil, as well as being a gold buen retiro that offers maximum privacy and services, in a unique context between naturalistic beauties and history. It is known, among other things, for one of the largest and most beautiful thermal spas in the area, the OLISPA: a wellness center of 1500 square meters where the Tuscan travertine dominates in a linear and refined environment with a Jacuzzi, two Turkish baths, sauna, emotional showers and ice falls and avant-garde treatment cabins that exploit the benefits of the precious thermal waters of the area. Waters that also flow into the bathtubs of the princely rooms (the cost starts from 600 euros per night) in a refined rural style, with balconies and windows overlooking the greenery and embraced by silence. Some are particularly special, like the Suite in the ancient south tower of the castle which has a private terrace of 150 square meters overlooking the vineyards of the Val d’Orcia and one volcanic water pool where to relax while enjoying one of the most evocative views of Tuscany. Will she be the one chosen by the couple for their wedding night? Indeed, of a civil union since in Italy it is not yet technically possible to speak of marriage between persons of the same sex.
Silvio Berlusconi’s gift
We do not know this detail, what is certain is that whatever room they choose, it will be the same in which they will find themselves unwrap the many gifts from friends who gathered around them on this special day. Among them, according to rumors of the Messengerit seems there is also that of the president of Forza Italia Silvio Berlusconi, fresh from the celebrations for his union with Marta Fascina: he is thinking of something “more substantial than good wishes”. “In his infinite generosity – internal party sources told the Roman newspaper – the President is ready to make a gift to Francesca and Paola for their union”.
The preparations on the sly
Meanwhile, the emotion in Montalcino, as told by those who are there on holiday for the weekend, seems to be stronger for the upcoming Palio di Siena, which returns after two years of Covid, than for the wedding protagonist of the weekend gossip. However the two brides are not creating many expectations: their social profiles, after posts for the Pride, do not give updates on the party and the big day. We will wait.
