EVERYDAY AT DELBRENNA IN CORTONA

La storia di Cortona inizia oltre 2000 anni fa. Adagiata su una ridente collina, Cortona si affaccia sulla vallata regalando una vista mozzafiato della Valdichiana. Le origini della città si perdono nel tempo: una volta importante centro Etrusco, oggi Cortona gode di grande fama internazionale grazie al romanzo, e poi anche film, Under The Tuscan Sun di Frances Mayes.

DelBrenna has two charming locations in Cortona. The delightful boutique under the Tuscan stairs! But also, the magical historic 'DelBrenna Showroom' (an ancient olive oil mill & wine cellar) located just across the square. Don't miss these lovely local DelBrenna shops committed to reinventing jewelry in a form that spreads joy & happiness. "I think I went to Italy initially for the art, architecture, food, and history, but I stayed there because of the people in Cortona." ~Frances Mayes

SHOP AT DELBRENNA'S TINY AND MOST HISTORIC LOCATION

The Italian proverb 'botte piccola fa buon vino' literally translates as 'the small barrel preserves the best wine. ' It pretty much means the same as 'the best things come in small packages'. Our "bottega" location is where the people of the piazza meet DelBrenna. It’s not unusual to see people coming to DelBrenna to share, connect and rejoice. We’re a memory-maker, and a neighborhood gathering place, both essential parts of a rich life.
