On exploring the Tuscan countryside, a land where the past has left behind a rich number of traces, we should be looking for the origins of the relationship between our soul and history, the real, everyday culture, and the roots of the emotions that are triggered off by contact with what we see.

Therefore, the beauty is not a banal and superficial escape, but a starting point for a search that does not lies outside our feelings, but is rather aimed at understanding the history of the places in their wider sense: places as the expression of the spirit of those who came before us.

These places are kind a sort of archetype of certain ideas and images which have accompanied us since childhood. And so if we bring emotion into our search for knowledge, the emotion will have the chance to link to objective references, to facts, to material objects whose form, style and poetic language we will be able to better understand.

A "photografic journey" among the most beautiful places and landscapes of Tuscany required us to face the difficult task of choosing the most interesting and significant subjects to be immortalised.

Since we wanted to give our route an organic structure, we divided it into four large areas which cover almost the entire territory of Tuscany.

The obvious starting place is Florence, with its land that reflects the taste for measure and balance of its chief town.

The second itinerary features the area which goes from the Lunigiana, crossing Lucca, touching Pisa, Volterra and Livorno, and then reaching Pistoia, Prato, the Mugello, the Pratomagno, the Casentino, Arezzo and the Valdichiana.

The thirt part presents Sienna and its land, where the Valdelsa stands out along with the pearl of San Gimignano, the Val di Merse with San Galgano, the Chianti, the "Crete" and the Valdorcia with their landscapes and their beautiful centres.

The journey ends in the vast land of the Maremma, from the heights of the Colline Metallifere to the coast, on to inland tuff made centres, ending on the slopes of Mount Amiata.
