It seems almost impossible to be able to tell the Tuscany through unusual photographs and little known subjects. The book has precisely this objective, crossing the great traces of history - Etruscans, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance - from the 'world capital of art', Florence, to all the other large and small villages that make up an unrivaled mosaic of wonders: Lucca, Pisa, Arezzo, Siena, Pienza and San Gimignano.
From the Tuscan archipelago to the mountains covered with forests, from the beaches to the countryside, to the patient human work in the marble quarries and in the most refined handcrafted creations. Passing through celebrations and rituals, a cuisine renowned all over the world and a legendary friendliness.
