The Tuscany region
The region is located in the central, western part of the country, north of Rome and south of Genoa. It is bounded by the Apennine Mountains to the North and East, the Apuan Alps on the northwest and by the Tyrrhenian Sea on the West.
From the Etruscans to the Romans to the Renaissance, Tuscany is possibly the best repository of art in the world, from extraordinary paintings and sculpture to frescoes and architectural masterpieces.
Tuscany: a row of cypress trees breaking the blue sky on a rolling hilltop. Olive groves and grapevines marching tidily down the side of a slope. Little medieval hill towns gazing down upon a country that has been carefully cultivated.
Florence is the capital of Tuscany. Other cities are Siena, Pisa, Arezzo, Pistoia, Prato, Lucca, Livorno, Grosseto, Massa Carrara.
Siena is one of the most popular destinations for travelers to Tuscany. Siena is home to the famous horse race, the Palio, held in Siena's unusual central square.
Radicondoli rises on a prominence of the Metallifere Hills dominating the high valley of the Cecina river.
The local economy is mainly based on woods, sheep-farming and on the activity of geothermal and electrical industries for the exploitation of the boric acid fumarole.
Among the most important monuments to see in Radicondoli we point out here the Collegiata (Collegiate Church), the Pieve di San Simone (Saint Simon Parish), the Convento di San Francesco (Saint Francis Convent) and the Castello di Elci (Elci's Castle).
Among the numerous celebrations periodically taking place in Radicondoli we remind here the ancient 'May First Fest' held on May first. The celebrations consists of outdoor walks and a parade of a music band playing and singing all day long.
