 Theatre I Tuscany

The delightful Arrischianti Municipal Theatre, situated in the heart of the old town centre, was built in 1680, but owes its current appearance to renovation work carried out in 1740, and the 19th century addition of stucco. It is a perfect example of a traditional small 18th century Tuscan theatre, with its time-honoured ties to the local Theatre Academy. The Arrischianti (Daredevils) Theatre Academy is still going strong today with the "Nuova Accademia", bringing the theatre to life with an array of performances.

Cetona Town I Tuscany

​Cetona is rated one of the most beautiful villages in Italy and is a well-preserved mediaeval town, It surrounds a hill where the rocca (fortress), containing a square tower (ca 900 AD) and an inner fortress wall, is located. This rocca became known as the Scitonia castle. Cetona became a favorite of the trendy set in the Italy of the 1960s. This happened thanks partly to its geographical location halfway between Florence and Rome on the Autostrada del Sole but also because of the attractiveness of the town itself and the beauty of the surrounding countryside. Cetona remains popular - the clothing designer Valentino owns a palazzo here - and although it is off the tourist circuit the shops are good and it's a pleasant place to visit.

Il Campo I Tuscany

The 9 paneled scallop shell shaped piazza is one of the finest medieval city squares in Europe, really worth a visit. Along with its magnificent cathedral and marble inlaid floor, Siena’s Il Campo is a stirring, vibrant central square enticingly shaped like a scallop shell. The summer heat pushes groups to the shaded edges, the shadows of the dominant Palazzo Publico and 100 metre bell tower (Torre del Mangia) offering welcome relief. Il Campo is the location of the famed and wild Il Palio horse race (conducted twice a year since medieval times) in honour of the Virgin Mary.I love the way the piazza is used like a park’s lawn, people sitting in small groups on the pastel pink paving to enjoy a chat, a bite to eat or to soak up the rich history of Siena.

It’s amazing to think that as large and striking as the 13th Century Duomo is now, it was once only the transept of a much larger Cathedral they had planned before Florence and the plague cut their ambitions down. The unfinished walls outside the right side are still visible, for sure worth a visit.

After moving to the area in 1924, the Origos dedicated their lives to the development and progress of the Val d'Orcia and its people. Based at Villa La Foce and the nearby medieval castle, Castelluccio, Incontri's aim is to spread the appreciation of music and art through concerts, meetings, and artistic events held in the many beautiful neighbouring towns that include Pienza, Radicofani, Cetona, Città della Pieve and San Quirico d'Orcia. Art and music is a meeting ground for the awareness of many issues, from the understanding and collaboration between peoples to increased cultural interaction between America and Europe and the challenge of musical and literary education for the young.

La Foce I Tuscany

When Antonio and Iris Origo bought the estate of La Foce, they engaged the English architect Cecil Pinsent. The garden grew gradually, between 1925 and 1939. The house is surrounded by a formal Italian garden, which is divided into geometrical ‘rooms’ by box hedges with lemon trees in terracotta pots. Travertine stairs lead to the rose garden and a winding wisteria-covered pergola bordered by lavender hedge. Gentle informal terraces climb up the hill, where cherry trees, pines and cypresses grow among wild broom, thyme and rosemary, and a long cypress avenue leads to a 17th-century stone statue, Really worth a visit.

Necropolis of Pianacce I Tuscany

The necropolis of Pianacce at Sarteano is one of the best examples of Etruscan wall painting of the 4th century BCE. The necropolis, situated 1 km south-east of Sarteano, was first investigated in 1954 by G. Maetzke who discovered two tombs on the site. One of these was a monumental tomb with a 27 m long dromos and four chambers. They were only part of a vast cemetery area which occupies the entire rocky ridge at the end of the Sartiano plateau facing towards Cetona. The tomb was called of the "Quadriga Infernale" (Infernal Quadriga) because of the disturbing painting representing the god Charun, with his wild fangs and reddish mane, driving a flying chariot. Visits to the tomb take place every Saturday and have to be booked in advance at the museum desk.
