The Tuscany region

Tuscany, the cradle of modern European culture, contains treasures of every age and style, from the Etruscan theatre and Roman baths at Fiesole, to the majestic Gothic buildings in the medieval town of Siena, to the exceptional art and architecture of Florence. The cities of Tuscany have produced writers, scientists, architects, musicians and artists whose works have literally changed the world.

The immense dome of Florence’s Duomo, designed by Brunelleschi, inspired Michelangelo’s design for the dome of St. Peter’s in Rome, and influenced architecture in towns throughout Italy. Modern science and technology have their roots in the experiments of Galileo and other researchers. Puccini was born in Lucca. Dante, Petrarch and Boccaccio broke with traditional Latin and wrote in the Italian language, establishing the Tuscan dialect as Italy’s literary language and things Tuscan as the measure of culture and refinement.

Under the patronage of the Medici dynasty, Florence became the centre of the artistic explosion of the Renaissance. One of the most important collections of paintings in the world is in the Uffizi Gallery, and in the austere Bargello you can view the exceptional collection of sculpture by Donatello and Luca della Robbia. Michelangelo’s David and Botticelli’s Birth of Venus should not be missed, nor should a stroll through the outdoor markets of San Lorenzo. Cross the ancient Ponte Vecchio to the Pitti Palace to enjoy the exquisite works of Raphael and Titian, and then visit the Boboli Gardens for a marvellous view of Florence.

The peaceful Tuscan landscape is primarily rolling hills, with vineyards, olive groves, cypress trees and hilltop villages all bathed in a soft, amber light. To many it seems familiar, and rightly so: during the Renaissance it was often used as the backdrop for the paintings of the masters.

The rustic Tuscan farmhouse, made of local stone and set atop a hill flanked by lines of cypress trees, is a sight unique to Tuscany. Silent medieval hill towns, with their fortified castle walls and church steeples visible in the distance, are a part of the landscape: San Gimignano, Volterra, Montepulciano, Cortona. Tuscany’s olive groves yield some of Italy’s finest extra virgin olive oil, but the heart of the region is in its vineyards, particularly the Chianti Classico, where you can visit fattorie (wine estates), to sample and purchase their wines.

Torcigliano

The area is divided in four main sub-areas: Versilia, the seaside on the Tirreno sea, Garfagnana, the highland in the north-east bordering with Emilia Romagna, Valle del Serchio in the middle of the area, and the lowland of Lucca in the south.

In the 6th century Lucca had been the capital city of the dukedom Tuscia, while from the 12th century it became a municipality first, and then a Republic. Between the 13th and the 14th centuries Lucca went through a strong commercial development period, becoming the key point in the textile trades between Europe and Asia, as well as a very popular location for the pilgrims coming from the Via Francigena.

In the historical city centre Lucca, the main monuments are 11th century dome, the elliptical Anfiteatro square (or Market square) and Palazzo Mansi, housing the national picture-gallery. Moreover, also the neighbourhoods are extremely attractive. On the hills in the Garfagnana area, for example, arise more than 300 liberty mansion-houses, all from luxuriy gardens. In few kilometres from the historical centre you can find: Bagni di Lucca, a popular thermal centre where in the last years a lot of popular people used to spend some relaxing periods; the amazing Karst cavities known as Grotta del Vento, in the Apuane Alps park; Castelnuovo di Garfagnana,with his strong memory of the Estense family past domain.

Finally, in the Versilia area is worth to mention Camaiore, Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio, which during the summer are full of tourists thanks to the beautiful beaches and the famous disco-clubs, but that offer also a lot of cultural events during the whole year.
