Be Different

Different as the ideas that allow you to make your wedding an even more special event, an unforgettable party for all your guests.



From the vintage style around the lively village of Colle Val d'Elsa to the hippie-chic vibe of Casole d'Elsa's real country atmosphere.

For the most demanding, a journey between past and contemporary times with original suggestions from the Rocca di Staggia: getting married inside a soap bubble or flying over the splendid 9th century castle in a hot air balloon.

And also in Colle di Val d'Elsa weddings can be celebrated in special venues with links to many unique features of the area: the ancient Teatro dei Varii, the water of the river with the ancient gore system of canals, and the fire of the ovens for the traditional crystal  production. Raise your wine glass for a toast!

A contemporary historical wedding at the Rocca di Staggia

"Inspired by historical memory to create contemporary itineraries, the magical medieval setting of the Rocca di Staggia enhances inspiration and poetry through contemporary art installations that provide a spectacular welcome to ceremonies and events".

Here is a suggestion for your wedding from the staff at the Rocca di Staggia: as a venue where civil wedding ceremonies can be held, it lets people unleash their creativity and desire to experiment in the choice of a space for the ceremony or a setting for the wedding banquet, amidst the walls, the tower, the internal garden, and the spaces where works of contemporary art complement the medieval context.

Together with your partner, you can experience a romantic walk in the clouds or get married inside a soap bubble. You can choose to start your journey together in a hot air balloon, which comes to life at the foot of the Rondella del Brunelleschi, the striking round tower of the Fortress.

In Colle di Val d'Elsa we toast with crystal!

If you have achieved fifteen years of marriage, you can celebrate le nozze di Cristallo (your crystal wedding anniversary). Due to its unique and distinctive characteristics, the material chosen for this anniversary manages to perfectly reflect the years spent together.

Did you know that Colle di Val d'Elsa is called "the City of Crystal"? Thanks to a tradition begun in 1820, the city has come to be responsible for 95% of Italy’s crystal production and 15% of the world’s. The fascinating process of manufacturing crystal, both hand blown and machine-made, can still be seen today at the city's glassworks and mills. In factories and craft workshops, you can choose exclusive, personalized gifts for newlyweds and guests.

The Crystal Museum, which tells the story of crystal from its origins to recent works by famous designers, including Sottsass, Joe Colombo, and Magistretti, is a very evocative location for wedding toasts.
