Meet the Team

The Invitation to Italian Lakes (and Tuscany and Provence)

Dan Wrightson

Dan Wrightson

Dan Wrightson is the managing director of the company. He grew up in Tuscany and has been running Invitation to Tuscany since 2004. He is also a keen climber and has spent a lot of time in the North of Italy – finding beautiful houses around the Italian lakes seemed a natural step. Dan illustrates the brochure and website with his watercolours – you can see more of them here:

Laura Pigazzini


Laura Pigazzini, who has been with the company since 2007, runs our London office. Laura keeps a close eye on everything to make sure all our clients are happy and all our owners know what’s going on. She coordinates all of our foreign agents and makes sure everything is running like clockwork.


Lyn Young


Lyn is the main London agent – if you ring us or write to us, Lyn will be the friendly voice at the end of the phone and your first port of call. Lyn and Laura regularly visit our properties and inspect new properties, meeting with the owners and testing roads and restaurants so they offer the best advice possible to the clients.

Joann Warren

joannJoann is our local agent in Italy. Joann has lived in Italy for years and has been working for the company for over 10 years. Joann visits all of our properties regularly but she will also be the first contact on the ground if there is ever any problem with any of the properties. Thankfully this is not very often!
