Editori dell'Acero

This book aims to provide an intriguing journey through the most important monastic sites in Tuscany, looking beyond their immediate beauty.

The basis of the work comprises high quality photographs and a text whose purpose is to provide a brief summary of the history, geografy and spirituality of the phenomenon of monasticism.

The book's main purpose is to offer the reader a tool so that he can gradually grasp the dimension of silence, harmony and balance in the monasteries and hermitages together with their position in the landscape. In addition, we want to make the vibrations given off by the walls, sculptures and decorations come alive, even when they have become part of ruins or buildings in disrepair.

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.
