If you have not already visited this unrivaled collection and gorgeous grounds, you are in for a very special experience, and a fun, art-filled day with fellow Guild Hall patrons, and our tour will have the added perk of being led by the Magazzino founders, Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Olnick Spanu.

Magazzino Italian Art was noted in the New York Times (6/30/2022) as well as in Galerie Magazine’s “The 10 Best Art Exhibitions to see Around the World this Summer” (8/1/22).

Our intimate group of 20 will see Gilardi: Tappeto-Natura, Italian artist Piero Gilardi’s first institutional solo exhibition in the US. We will also be treated to a new installation of their noted permanent collection. It’s an exquisite space and setting, and sure to be memorable.

A catered box lunch will be provided, and if you are coming from the East End, no travel plans are needed. We will provide round-trip luxury transportation. Guests can also meet us there by car or train. Shuttles are provided too from the train station. 

Due to the intimate size of our private tour, reservations will be taken on a first come, first-serve basis. Reservations including the bus ride are $200 per person, and $150 if you are traveling on your own.

Please contact Eliza Rand at with any questions and to sign up or join and sign up!

Guild Hall extends special thanks to Magazzino Co-Founders, Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Olnick Spanu, and Director, Vittorio Calabrese, for their generous hospitality.
