Pasticcio is Italian for the delizioso mix of Ancient Roman, Baroque and Commedia dell’Arte designs at Ca’toga, a fantasy villa on 5 acres at the headwaters of the Napa River. Italian-born artist Carlo Marchiorre realized his Palladian dream here just outside of Calistoga with a home/museum filled wall-to-wall with trompe l’oeil murals, ceramics, paintings, sculptures and a garden with faux ruins, a grotto, a pool and artfully landscape riverside. Thursday to Monday tours from May to October only. $30.
