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.
