Editori dell'Acero

This great volume greatly expands the outline of Romanic churches in the Florentine countryside which begun with the publication on Mugello and Val di Sieve, by embracing the entire medieval diocese of Florence up to the south of the Arno river.

One-hundreds and twenty five Romanic buildings are presented, many of which unknown, that offer a capillary outline of most densely crowded medieval Tuscany. This area embraces a territory that, leaving from the Valdelsa fiorentina, crosses the Val di Pesa, the Val di Greve and reaches the course of the Arno river in Florence.

It's a great triangular area that has its corners in Empoli, Firenze-Bagno a Ripoli and Poggibonsi.

In the middle of such trangle there are the towns of the so-called Florentine Chianti, like Saint Casciano Val di Pesa, Tavarnelle, Impruneta, while the sides are marked north-side by Montelupo, Lastra a Signa and Scandicci; south-west side by Montespertoli, Certaldo and Castelfiorentino; south-east side by Barberino Val d' Elsa and by the extreme parts of the commons of the Chianti area.

Editori dell'Acero

In this volume we have gathered the most beautiful and significant examples among the hundreds of "pievi" (parishes) that existed in the region since the first centuries of Christianity.

It is a fascinating trip in search of buildings and places often far from the noise and haste of everyday life; places which induces to contemplation and meditation.

This book is also intended as an invitation to go along the same itineraries of the photographers who caught the light on ancient wall hangings, facades, apses, stone pillars or columns in the interiors, paying the right tribute to so many humble and unknown builders.

This is a book which has to be read open-heartedly in order of not to miss the thrills and beauty it intends to offer you.
