Dream Work & Teamwork


The choice became:
Dream of Italy or in Italy.

We stayed for a week and couldn’t leave. It was too good.
— Lexi Scott, IVW Co-Founder

“Friends of 40 years, senior citizens, and first time entrepreneurs. Feels weird to say! Ultimately we know that what Tuscia has is special. We want to share it, but we also want to respect it; as well as the people who live and thrive here.

This business is a way to try and do that. To share the love we have for Italy, for people, and for how the love of Italy heals people.”

—The IVW Team

The Founders

I melted into the pace of village life immediately.

Italian culture is so rich, it’s nearly infinite.
— Mario Marmorstein

Italian historical non-fiction novelist, screenwriter, and professor of Italian history; Mario ensures Tuscia is represented accurately and authentically.
