Because of Its being sacred mountain of Etruscan; powerful centre, both aristocrat and religious, during the medieval period; midway between Florence and Rome; homeland of a long epic rural and mining traditions, house of the prophet David Lazzaretti, strong religious symbol of the 19th century; green lung and heart of Italy…
A land rich of history, art and legend, where the domineering nature is at your fingertips. Where there are a lot of places to see and discover: cultural heritage, folklore and culinary traditions.
A paradise that we want to enhance and show through this little guide, with the aim of informing and make people curious about, introducing cultural values and beauty: the reason of a visit.
