Ca' Toga written by Janey Saavedra for Liquid Language
I particularly enjoy seeing trompe l'oeil, which is a painting style that "fools the eye" into believing a two-dimensional (flat) surface is three-dimensional by using optical illusion techniques. This type of realistic looking artwork...

Jordan Young's Exploring the Wine Country in AAA website.

Villa Ca' Toga Calistoga Ca, Carlo  Marchiori"The high point of our trip, Harris and I later agreed, came Saturday evening in Calistoga, where we visited the Ca' Toga Galleria D'Arte — a shop filled with the imaginative creations of Venetian-born artist Carlo Marchiori — and then toured his home, Villa Ca' Toga."
Carlo Marchiori and Ca' Toga got mentioned prominently in Jordan Young's Exploring the Wine Country in AAA website.


HOUSE & HOME/STYLE DESK | The New York Times September 06, 2001

Temple: Villa Ca' Toga Calistoga Ca, Carlo MarchioriUNDER silvery moonlight, the Doric temple in Carlo Marchiori's garden looks as if it were hewn from Carrara marble. Fluted columns pose heroically on a romantically crumbling foundation. Soaring above are elaborate friezes and fragments of traditional entablature. Theres even a broken pediment. All that's missing is the oracle. Mr. Marchiori, 61, a decorative artist in California, offers up an instant classical education in his villa and garden. His five-acre domain, which he calls Ca' Toga, sits on the banks of the Napa River in the rocky northern reaches of the Napa Valley. Passers-by can glimpse the richly colored villa across a vineyard. The fake architectural ruins surrounding it -- columns, statues and temples built out of construction-site castoffs, broken concrete sidewalks from town, scraps of wood and flea market find -- were fashioned primarily for the pleasure of creation.

"Caffe Trinity in San Francisco recreates the venerable European, but with a significantly American slant. Marchiori's murals, depicting Native Americans, wildlife and pioneers, present an amusing counterpart to the ornate vestiges of Venice."     Click here to view the pages

"I love the Fog" says Bashford. So he asked artist Carlo Marchiori to paint a mural that wraps over the fireplace. A Venetian garden with slow-moving clouds and fogs recalls the lushness of foggy Mendocino.
