Guided tour of the medieval village overlooking Valdichiana Aretina and visit to the laboratory of Andrea Roggi
Contact with the earth and with one's own roots is essential. Castiglion Fiorentino is the place where all this is real and tangible. We will travel the history of a borderland disputed between Perugia and Arezzo, and finally conquered by Florence.
Recent archaeological discoveries enrich the information about the history and art of Castiglion Fiorentino, but it is evident even to the most inexperienced eyes how the Castiglionesi have perfectly preserved and maintained their beautiful village.
Even today they continue to enrich it with artistic works.
You will visit the town, the Cassero, Piazza del Municipio and the Church of San Francesco, with their artistic and historical heritage.
In Castiglion Fiorentino you will notice the masterpieces of Andrea Roggi, a famous sculptor known all over the world who wanted to celebrate the attachment to his land in each of his sculptures. Visiting his atelier is a unique experience.
