The Villa of Celle in Santomato (in the Province of Pistoia), located on the nice hills between Pistoia and Prato,  originally exists already in the year 1000, but, its  present form was realized, in the late seventeenth century, by Cardinal Carlo Agostino Fabroni from Pistoia. The architect Giovanni Gambini enlarged the park, designing an English-style garden of  roughly sixty acres.

Bordering the garden, the Villa of Celle fam continues to produce Chianti Montalbano wine and extravirgin Tuscany olive oil.

In 1970, Giuliano Gori started creating the current unique amazing collection of modern artworks. His idea was to ask to many international artists to realize their own artworks made specifically for its space. 
This is the reason why  the collection of artworks is inseparable from the property, being became an integral part of the site and the wider landscape.

The Fattoria di Celle modern art collection is now one of the most important one in Italy and in Europe too.
