Go back 3000 years in time and plunge into the world of a fascinating people. Follow the traces of a mysterious past, from the Acropolis to the Etruscan Museum, with its rich collection of cinerary urns and the disquieting “Ombra della Sera” (Shadow of the evening).
Alabaster, art, and tradition in Volterra, unique handicraft. Visit an alabaster workshop: feel the emotion of discovering how alabaster objects are created.
Montecatini Val di Cecina: medieval evocations of this fascinating village linked with the thrill to walk down a tunnel, which leads to the bowel of the earth.
The history of Montecatini is tied to the Camporciano copper mine which was active until 1907 and gave its name to one to the biggest extraction companies in Europe: Montecatini S.p.a, which later became Montedison.
