2019/16/05 - Considered as one of the world’s most important artists, the British singer Sting -10 Grammys, 2 Brit Awards, 1 Golden Globe Award, 1 Emmy, 3 Oscar nominations...- requires little introducing. However, few are aware that he swapped the ruckus of the stage, two decades ago, for the quietude of the Tuscan Mediterranean. Here he acquired the beautiful Il Palagio villa, and moved there with his wife Trudie Styler and their six children, to be able to combine his two passions, music and gastronomy. At present they produce wine, honey and olive oil. Who would have imagined almost four decades ago, when as lead singer of Police he first sang his famous Message in a Bottle, that he would be living surrounded by bottles... of EVOO! We are welcomed by our hosts, Sting and Trudie, to their Tuscan paradise.
