Grandmother, benefactor, wife, Paola Thaon di Revel love flowers and nature. Heritage is her background. She grew up in a family where military discipline was natural as well as the desire to have fun. Six sisters and one brother in a large villa "Cimena" and everyone came to visit and to parties: from Umberto I, to educated Americans, to the Bruni Tedeschi neighbors on the same hill. A life dedicated to her husband, Franco Reviglio and the 3 children with many removals and travelling all over the world. Today the 7 grandchildren and her country house mark her intense days. Nonna, benefattrice, moglie, Paola Thaon di Revel ama i fiori e la natura. L'eredità è il suo background. È cresciuta in una famiglia in cui la disciplina militare era naturale così come il desiderio di divertirsi. Sei sorelle e un fratello in una grande villa "Cimena" e tutti venivano a visitare e alle feste: da Umberto I, agli americani istruiti, ai vicini Bruni Tedeschi sulla stessa collina di Torino. Una vita dedicata a suo marito, Franco Reviglio e ai 3 figli con molti traslochi e viaggi in tutto il mondo. Oggi i 7 nipoti e la sua casa di campagna segnano i suoi giorni intensi.

Taking our past into the future with Carolina Reviglio! Carolina enjoyed a carefree childhood in the Piedmont countryside. With many cousins and friends, the passion for culture was instilled from an early age. Surrounded by beauty and art in the family mansion Cimena, expertly curated by her grandmother namesake, Carolina. On the paternal side of the family, her Venetian grandmother was equally influential. The unique character and rich culture of Venice, epitomizes Carolina. While travelling often, she feels most at home, in the isles of Venice. Schooled in Italy and the United States, lived in provinces throughout the length of Italy, Carolina considers herself truly Italian, with an international vision. “My country is rich in heritage, but poor in the pocket to keep it so. It saddens me to see so many buildings in a state of disrepair.” She has honed the skills of renovation and interiors of historic buildings, since 1987. Learning by trial and error, spurned on by failure and ultimate success, Carolina has grown and prospered. Now is the time to give back. Helping artisans of all disciplines to find work and ply their trade with pride. Matching projects to professionals and vice versa. As Heritage Doyenne, Carolina’s primary contribution to this unique initiative, is to encourage the participation of Heritage Ambassadors. This cause is yet another open avenue, to take our past into the future. By intertwining culture and heritage, to create more synergy. “Only once we fully understand where we come from… and truly appreciate our heritage… can we imagine a fabulous future filled with the richness of our past. Life is ours to design!” ~ Carolina Reviglio
