In Sitzo's room.

This is Sitzo's part of the castle, formerly where Boris was. We had a memorable night after dinner here when we all shared a grappa and some bittersweet chocolate while listening to Pepe Romero's recording of the Vivaldi concertos with the Italian chamber group, I Musici. (I had brought along this recording as a small gift to the deRachewiltz's. Mary's mother was the noted violinist Olga Rudge of Chigi Conservatory, largely credited with discovering and popularizing Vivaldi for modern times.) This room was kept very dark, which just added to the ambiance of the moment.
