With the support of Regione Toscana and Monte dei Paschi Foundation, it’s the result of an important study on the tuscan landscape.
“Our landscape, the marvellous tuscan territory famous and appreciated all over the world, it’s the heritage of the story and culture of this county. The territory changes constantly and with it the landscape, thought as the image which everyone of us has of it. Thus, in the title the word renaissance means a different, new way to look at the landscape, as an interlacement of development and beauty.”

“Tuscany pictorial qualities”
I wanted to interpret the Tuscan landscape personally, because you cannot reduce Tuscany to a commonplace. It is, on the contrary, a legendary, unique and always different place, if you see it through the eyes of a person who knows it and loves it.
I was born and grew up on the coast and I lived the last twenty years in the Apennine woods of this region. A personal research and numberless occasions led me to know a lot of faces of its territory, thanks to my profession.
At the same time, this land has given me its identity, in the passionateness of its character and in the indissoluble link with art, as in the need of equilibrium and harmony.
I hope I could express these feelings through my images.

The forest of Sasso Fratino is the first one we want to tell you about. It is the place par excellence for us, who have planned and wanted this publication greatly, who can live close to it and breath the magic atmospheres of great inspiration of this marvelous place and a lot of others in the National Park of the Casentino Forests.
But Sasso Fratino is mainly a symbol, an emblem of purity, balance, commitment and love for Nature.
Nature stirs up the fancy of our own nature.
