The studio is at Casa Fanchi (strada per Sestino 38), 47864, Pennabilli (province of Rimini).

Pennabilli, fifty kilometers from Rimini, is a village in the hills of the Mareccchia river valley, surrounded by woods near Monte Carpegna
The environment is uncontaminated, it's a great place for birdwatching, birdlistening and macrophotography.

In Pennabilli there's a very important museum on the history of numbers (museo di storia del calcolo).
Many historical buildings, dating back to roman and medieval times, are to be met during walks.
Nel punto più alto della Penna, è posizionata la copia della campana di Lhasa (Tibet), unico reperto rimasto dalla missione in Tibet dei Frati Cappuccini, tra cui Padre Orazio Olivieri da Pennabilli nel XVIII sec. Oltre alla campana sono esposte le tradizionali preghiere tibetane, ricordo delle due visite a Pennabilli di Sua Santità il Dalai Lama.


In nearby San Leo (in whose fortress the famous sorcerer Cagliostro was imprisoned and died) there is a very interesting museum with archaeological findings (many fibulas) from prehistoric through etruscan and celtic times.
