Franco Cardini's journey through Tuscany takes the reader on an exploration, following in the traces of memory, of the "most touching landscape in the world," and reconstructs the events of the past that have forged the proud identity of its people. Between mountains cloaked in forests and traversed by ancient roads, variegated coasts of sand and rock, hills cultivated with wines and olives and unspoiled oases of nature, the fascinating journey is studded with visits to its superb cities and precious towns, testimonies to the immense artistic heritage that has made this land unique.

Franco Cardini, professor of Medieval History at Florence University, has taught at numerous universities in Europe, the Middle East and America. He has published numerous books and written many articles for newspapers and magazines.
