A beautiful visual adventure is budding from the Land of Robin Hood to the Land of Ghino di Tacco in Tuscany. From the much lauded March 27th GHOST BUS SHOW and UK short films premiere at Nottingham and its collaboration between celebrated visual artist Roberto Alborghetti, ACT Group (Art-Culture-Tourism) and Bartons plc, an exciting international abstract art gallery is travelling along the road bridging England to Italy, via an old rusty bus.  An exciting multi art, culture and tourism show that will be starting on Wednesday 21 October with the ACT Tuscany GRAND TOUR and finishing on Wednesday 28 October.

The huge publicity derived from this great collaboration of Italian visual artist, Beeston based art-culture-tourism group and an old rusty 1950s bus once operated by Bartons, has led to Art-Culture-Tourism “twinning talks” between Nottingham and Tuscany.  In fact Beeston with Piancastagnio, Nottingham with Siena, East Midlands region with Mount Amiata region.  And these “talks” will be progressed and ACTivated during the Tuscany GRAND TOUR.

A visual treat is in store for those booking and participating in this road and landscape adventure bringing together England and Italy. The writing is on the wall… follow the RENAISSANCE to the heart of Tuscany!
