NCV was founded by three Americans, Roni Kennison, Michael Manchester and Eliza Nash, who have lived for many years in Siena and who have come to know the city as a second home.

Through their common appreciation of all things Italian, and particularly Sienese, they have formed a special relationship with the Sienese community and with Siena Italian Studies at the International Center for the Study of Italian Language and Culture. It is this relationship that allows the Italy enthusiast access to corners of Siena that tourists rarely experience.
