The music festival is curated by Nicola Graziani , born in 1992, familiar with the electric bass since adolescence and then graduated from the Lizard Music Academy in Fiesole and began a specialization course at Siena Jazz University. Graduated from the GB Martini Conservatory of Bologna, as a jazz enthusiast, Graziani has selected some of the most promising young musicians for the Podere Castellare Music Festival. To take care of the accompaniment in terms of food & beverage instead it will be the Podere Castellare team: every evening from the aperitif time to the after dinner will be offered a short list of signature cocktails based on the house gin, Peter in Florence, in addition to the great classics of mixology. It will also be possible to book dinner with the dinner roulette formula: a series of gourmet tastings served at the table, from the resort's kitchen.
