The Tuscany region

Located in the heart of Italy, Tuscany is surely one of the most famous Italian landscapes. The essence of this beautiful region are its natural, artistic, and cultural heritage.

Bounded by the Ligurian and the Tyrrhenian Sea (two arms of Mediterranean), this region is divided into ten provinces, whose capitals are Arezzo, Florence, Grosseto, Livorno, Lucca, Massa-Carrara, Pisa, Pistoia, Prato and Siena. Florence is the capital city of the region itself.

The region was populated first by the Etruscans on the 7th century BC, and about 500 years later by the Romans.

The words Humanism and Renaissance evoke Tuscany, as immediately as Pope evokes Rome: just think that between the fourteenth and the sixteenth century, both these ages were born here. The entire region attained a very important artistic role.

If you are keen on art and nature… well you’re definitely in the right place! ;-)

Indeed the fathers of Italian painting, architecture and sculpture lived in this beautiful towns: such as Cimabue, Giotto, Brunelleschi, Donatello, Botticelli, Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo. This is the reason why the entire region is rich in museums where thousands of amazing works are kept. You’ll be impressed by the majesty of the many ancient palaces (for examples “Palazzo Vecchio”, “Palazzo Pitti”, “Palazzo Medici”), monasteries and villas that are springing up all over the Tuscany.

Spring and fall are the best times to visit Tuscany, because the climate is mild. Bus-lines and trains connect the larger towns, but having a car would be a great advantage, and you would be easily able to enjoy the small towns and vineyards, which represent some of Tuscany’s strong points.

The “Chiantigiana road” is a must to see: it produces some of Italy’s finest wines. This is the colourful and legendary road of the “Chianti" region. The grape cultivation dates back to the Etruscan times. One of the biggest pleasures will be sipping different wines, at the wineries or at the wine bars scattered in the towns.

What about a drop in on “Mugello”? It is a countryside surrounded by oaks, chestnut trees and by the Apennines, This land of artists and painters have been source of inspiration in its farmhouses and colours. with kind people, authentic cooking, good wine, plus a great tradition in handicrafts.

The Apuan Alps are a monumental work of the nature. They consist in some of the highest peaks in the region: This regional park sets up the chance for those who want to practice trekking, cycling, horse riding or simply walking to enjoy this beautiful landscape.

Versilia is an area of 20 km sandy beaches located in the north of the region. The seaside with the colourful bathing areas is rich in bars and meeting places. Camaiore, Forte dei Marmi, Massarosa, Pietrasanta, Seravezza, Stazzema and Viareggio are the towns of this beautiful coast.

Bucine

Bucine is a lively village lying among Florence, Arezzo and Siena. Because of its particular position, it has been strategically momentous since the Roman Age. This lovely place became even more important during the Middle Ages, when contended among local seigniories and big cities.

Bucine is located in the Valdambra, at 207 metres above the sea level, and counts nearly 9000 inhabitants.

In the XIII century, the main local authorities were the Counts Guidi of Modigliana, that in 1225 put themselves under the municipality and protection of Arezzo. Afterwards Bucine has been contended between the noble families Ubertini di Chitignano and Tarlati... squabbles among nobles swept away from the Republic of Florence, that made Bucine residence of the podestà in 1335.

Here you will be able to admire the Romanesque parish church of Galatrona, as well as the church of St. Apollinare and the Castle of Galatrona.

Set up into a league known as “Lega di Valdambra”, Bucine supported Florence during its campaign in order to annex the properties of the Counts Ubertini, which were conquered between the fourteenth and fifteenth century.

Under the the Medicean Grand Duchy, Bucine became a marquisate, given to the family of Vitelli by Ferdinand II, in 1654.

The village underwent another change during the Napoleonic Empire becoming, in 1811, one of the “mairies” (town hall) of the Prefecture of Arno. When the Empire collapsed in 1815, Bucine was reintegrated into the Grand Duchy, getting the status of “Podesteria del Bucine Valdambra”: a huge territory including 24 towns under the municipality of Arezzo. That is why the area of Bucine still has such a wide extension.
