Self Leadership Backbone Tuscany

From September 30th to October 3rd, 2022

After two years of successful remote programmes, we are excited to hold the first SLB in presence in a location for us very special, the countryside of Florence, Italy.
Vittoria one of our founders comes from Tuscany and owns a quiet little house in a small borgo named “Poggiosecco”. This is why we keep coming back for our b+p Design Retreats or gatherings with Colleagues, Clients, and Partners.

In and around “Poggiosecco” we have recharged our batteries, gathered inspiration, had good conversations while walking through vineyards and olive groves. Many of our most successful interventions and programs have been developed here in this special atmosphere. We are delighted to share our well-being spot with you and welcome you to our program in the heart of the Chianti.
Holding our program of deep personal contemplation whilst strolling through this beautiful Tuscan scenery with its wine yards, olive woods, pine trees, and lovely hills is a dream coming true.
Come and join us on this SLB Tuscany Venture at the Podere Casacce in Chianti 20 minutes outside Florence.

The scenery

The accommodation and departure point of our venture is Podere Casacce, a prestigious Tuscan “Colonica” farmhouse of the XIII century, placed in the heart of “Chianti Classico”. The house, situated 21 km from Florence, is magnificently placed on a beautiful hillside called Tignanello. From the property, you have splendid panoramic views of the surrounding vineyards, olive groves, and forests, which invite you to take discovery walks.

The outside

Podere Casacce is a splendid, completely restored, and refurbished Tuscan “Colonica” house, with its typical architecture, including stone walls, ceilings made of terracotta tiles, wooden beams, and characteristic cotto floors.


All the rooms have great views and retain interesting original features of a Tuscan “Colonica” house.
The antique accommodations in a family atmosphere are nested and winding with homey bedrooms, loving bathrooms, cozy lounges, and invite contemplative lingering.
Sit and relax in the living rooms or outside in the pretty terraces’ and gardens or at the pool site with its stunning views. You are free to use the kitchen any time you might want to prepare a tea or coffee. Please note that this is self-catering accommodation (similar to a holiday rental) so there is no daily maid service for your rooms, although there will always be people on hand should you need something.

What is the Self Leadership Backbone (SLB)?

A Journey of Inquiry into the Self

The Self Leadership Backbone is a journey of discovery into the self. The program brings together people that consciously step out of their everyday lives to realign themselves. Together we develop scenarios for your next chapter in life. How can you make good and meaningful use of your resources, your talent, and your time? How do you act effectively and achieve your purpose in life? What is it that you want to bring back to life?
