The Tuscany region
Forte di Tregognano is in the heart of Tuscany, just 15 km from the city of Arezzo.
The city of Arezzo is situated at the confluence of three of the four valleys that make up the province. Directly north of the city begins the Casentino, which is the valley in which the first part of the Arno; in the north-west is the upper Valdarno (Arno always run in the stretch that flows between Arezzo and Florence); to the south is Val di Chiana, a plain derived from the reclamation of existing wetlands, whose most important river is the Canale Maestro della Chiana. Through the easy pass of Torrino and the valley of Cerfone, you have access to the North-East to the fourth valley, the Tiber valley, crossed by the first part of the Tiber.
The territory is very wide and varied: it goes from the plain which opens the Val di Chiana and the Arno, the hills, south of the city, in mountainous areas, especially in the East, as a result of the great extension of the municipalities that border, are numerous: the side of the Val di Chiana are Civitella in Val di Chiana, Cortona, Cortona, Monte San Savino and Marciano della Chiana.
On the side of the upper Valdarno, still Civitella in Val di Chiana and Laterina Castiglion Fibocchi .
On the side of Casentino, Capolona and Subbiano (where the villa is located).
On the side of the Tiber, Anghiari, Monterchi and the two towns in Umbria of Città di Castello and Monte Santa Maria Tiberina (Tuscany until 1927).
It's easy to get Siena (60km, by car), Florence (60km, by car or by train from the trainstation in Arezzo) and Perugia (60km, by car or by train from the trainstation in Arezzo).
The climate of the city of Arezzo and the surrounding area has the characteristics of more pronounced continentality of Tuscany, given the position straddling the Arno Valley and the Val di Chiana and the Apennines in its vicinity.
The rainfall have an irregular character, because the area can be affected both by the currents Atlantic wet than those from dry continental north and east.
The temperature is high in both the daily and annual values. The winter snow is not uncommon, and the historical average is about 20 cm per year in the mountains, 5 cm in the town, but it doesn't stay more than few days in a year.
Extreme temperatures recorded in the municipal area are the absolute maximum of +41.5 ° C in the summer (july, august); while in the winter (december, january) the minimum could be at -5.
The holidays specific to the city are those of the patron saint San Donato (August 7) and that of Lady of Consolation (February 15). On January 10, we celebrate the Blessed Gregory X, patron of the city.
Events and exhibitions:
Every first Sunday of the month and the preceding Saturday held in the historic center "Antique Fair".
On 9, 10 and 11 September of each year there is the "September Fair" (Fiera di Settembre).
In the context of historical re-enactments, of which the center of Italy is rich, we find the Saracen Joust (Giostra del Saracino).
Restored historical re-enactment in 1931, the Saracen Joust is run at Piazza Grande in Arezzo the second Saturday of June (at night) and on the first Sunday of September edition (daytime). In the carousel challenge the 4 districts of the city district of Porta del Foro, Crucifera Port, Port St. Andrew and Port Santo Spirito. Each rider runs the contention in the order determined from the extraction of careers, a ritual that takes place in the town square a week before the Tournament. The knight takes a lance with which to hit the backboard supported by the barrel, a wooden statue represented the Saracen. The rating is between one and five points, each district runs twice as long, occasionally resorting to the playoff, a district does not predominate over the others.
Tregognano certainly gives strong emotions for the first time to those who are about to discover the hidden part of Tuscany which is located only one hour from Florence and Siena, the certainly less known, but rich in treasures to be discovered and that the power to completely regenerate the body and mind of those who stay.
The panoramic view of Forte di Tregognano, overlooking the valley of Arezzo, is the ideal place to forget the stress of crowded cities intoxicated guests with colors, smells and atmosphere of a place that the ancients identified as ideal home for every day, plenty of sun, water and lush green vegetation.
In Tregognano first inhabited the Etruscans and then the Romans and in the Middle Ages there was built a strong military to control the road and the castle above, of which only the ruins remain today.
With the passage of time the ancient fortification, while retaining the original structure was transformed and expanded to become a village, to be inhabited by large families, the last of which is living up to the year 1950.
After a long and careful restoration, the owner Maria Grazia, who is descended from a family that owns Tregognano for over five hundred years, wanted that magical place to be lived every day, as has always been welcoming guests from all over with joy of the world.
