      Casole d’Elsa

      Casole d’Elsa

      Casole d’Elsa

      Amongst medium and low hills cultivated with vines, olive trees and cereals

      Casole d’Elsa was an ancient Etruscan settlement and is still located on the back of a hill that offers a suggestive panoramic view of the Sienese countryside.

      In the 11th and 12th centuries, Casole was a place of strategic interest and so, in order to defend its territory from possible external attacks, new fortifications were erected, including two round towers in addition to the city walls. The walls of Casole d’Elsa are ovoid in shape and consist of both the two late 15th-century towers mentioned above and the Rocca, a 14th-century fortress now housing the town hall. However, a contemporary soul is hidden in this building: the Arte Viva art gallery, a magnificent collection of drawings and paintings by children from all over the province.

      One of the main buildings in the historic centre of Casole is the Collegiate Church of Santa Maria Assunta, built in Romanesque-Gothic style in the 12th century. Inside are numerous art works such as those by Beltramo Aringhieri. Near the Collegiate Church is the Rectory, which today houses the Archaeological Museum of the Collegiate Church. Here it is possible to learn about the history of the town and its surroundings thanks to archaeological finds from the Etruscan period and paintings and sculptures of the Sienese school from the 14th to the 16th century. Also not to be missed is the Church of San Niccolò, which contains frescoes by Vincenzo and Francesco Rustici.

      In addition to the buildings and the arta, we must recognise the considerable environmental importance of the Casole d’Elsa woods: the Berignone forest and the woods of the Montagnola Senese.

      Volterra

      Between an Etruscan past and the secrets of alabaster

      Volterra is one of the most important centres in Tuscany, both for the presence of monuments testifying to the civilisations that have succeeded one another over thirty centuries, and for the working of Tuscan alabaster, whose artefacts are now one of the most typical and traditional products of Italian craftsmanship.

      With its predominantly medieval appearance, it preserves abundant remains from the Etruscan period, such as the Porta all’Arco, the Acropolis and the city walls still visible in some parts of the city. The Roman presence in Volterra is documented by the important ruins of the Teatro di Vallebona, thermal buildings and a large water cistern. The medieval appearance of the town is not only evident in the urban layout, but is most visible in the palaces, tower-houses and churches. These include the Palazzo dei Priori, the Palazzo Pretorio, the two groups of towers of the Buomparenti and Bonaguidi and the Church of San Francesco. Finally, Volterra has three museums of considerable historical and artistic interest: the Museo Guarnacci, the Pinacoteca and the Museo Civico, and the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo.

      Its 7300-metre-long double wall was designed to protect not only the town and the urban centre, but also the springs, cultivated fields and pastures, which were often subject to raids by foreigners.

      In addition to its monuments and numerous testimonies of art and history, Volterra offers a view of the gentle hilly landscape that surrounds it, interrupted from the west by the wild and impressive spectacle of the Balze.

      San Gimignano

      San Gimignano

      A forest of towers on the horizon

      For the characteristic medieval architecture of its historic centre, San Gimignano was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990. The site of San Gimignano, also known as the Manhattan of the Middle Ages, is largely intact in its 13th and 14th century appearance and is one of the best examples in Europe of urban organisation from the communal era. In the most prosperous period, the rich families of San Gimignano came to build as many as 72 towers as a symbol of their wealth and power. Of these, 14 remain today, adding to the charm of the town’s atmosphere.

      Cathedral of San Gimignano: the simplicity of its Romanesque façade encloses the wonders and masterpieces inside. These include works by Benozzo Gozzoli, Taddeo di Bartolo and the pupils of Simone Martini.

      Piazza del Duomo: if the Duomo is the religious symbol of San Gimignano, the Palazzo del Popolo is its civic counterpart. Together, just a few metres from each other, they form the extraordinary architectural ensemble of Piazza del Duomo. The Palazzo Comunale is located on the left-hand side of the square, between the Torre Grossa and the Loggia del Comune. The palace today hosts the Civic Museum of San Gimignano, which already announces its beauty from the entrance courtyard.

      Piazza della Cisterna: this square, with its extraordinary setting, is an almost obligatory point of passage for any visit to San Gimignano. It is located at the top of the hill on which the Tuscan town is built, so it is a good place to relax. Harmonious and collected, it is certainly the most beautiful piazza in San Gimignano and one of the most beautiful all over Tuscany. This is where the small shops and market and jousting took place.

      The Torture Museum: In reality, there are two small museums: the first, as soon as you enter the village, displays on three floors a complete itinerary on torture methods from all over the world, with original instruments and tools, photos and detailed explanations. The other museum is located a little higher up and has the death penalty as its theme.

      Church of Sant’Agostino: a small treasure trove of works of art that is well worth a visit to discover the many jewels it contains.

      Rocca di Montestaffoli: built to defend San Gimignano from attacks by Siena after its submission to Florence. Not much remains of the ancient fortress, but it is worth climbing into this green space to admire an extraordinary view of San Gimignano and the Val d’Elsa. The only remaining tower of a complex defence system is a privileged vantage point from which to enjoy the view. Today, the fortress of Montestaffoli is the site of cultural events and festivals, in particular the Giostra dei Bastoni, held in June.

      Colle di Val d’Elsa

      Colle di Val d’Elsa

      Colle di Val d’Elsa

      The crystal capital

      Colle, also known as the Bohemia of Italy, accounts for 95% of Italian crystal production and 14% of world production. It therefore represents excellence in this sector for our territory and for the world.

      Globets, plates and glasses are shaped through a mix of craftsmanship and technique that can still be observed today and that allows the city to be the producer of almost all of this special glass in Italy. To learn the tricks of the trade and contemplate the art of glassblowing, you can visit the Crystal Museum or take the opportunity to attend demonstrations held in the workshops.

      In the past, the medieval village of Colle was divided into three parts: Borgo di Santa Caterina, Castello di Piticciano and the Piano, now simplified into Colle Alta and Colle Bassa. Official documents begin to mention Colle val d’Elsa as early as the 10th century. The town consists of the historic centre on the hill above and the newer part below.

      Colle Bassa: a visit to Colle can start from the large Piazza Arnolfo di Cambio located here. Then there is the Crystal Museum and the Church of St. Augustine. From Piazza Arnolfo di Cambio, take Via dei Fossi until you reach the Crystal Museum. The museum reconstructs the history of Colle’s glass industry. The museum also has an experimental area where visitors can come into direct contact with materials and tools for glassmaking. Continuing along Via dei Fossi, we come to Piazza Sant’Agostino, which is overlooked by the Renaissance-style Church of Sant’Agostino.

      Colle Alta: the Castle and the Borgo make up the most interesting part of the village. Here we find the Cathedral, the Archaeological Museum and the Museum Complex of San Pietro. Continue on to the majestic Porta Nova. The gate is part of the imposing system of fortifications that served to defend Colle Castle.

      Everyone knows the novel The Adventures of Pinocchio written by Carlo Collodi, but not everyone knows that for a certain period of his life the writer lived in Colle di Val d’Elsa. There was a medieval fountain in the town called Fonte di Pinocchio, which must have inspired Collodi to choose this name for his puppet.
