Tuscany is the top region for craftsmanship and it’s around its villages that “Le guide di Repubblica” have traced itineraries to discover historic artistic realities that still live today.
The artisans in the guide are divided into three macro-areas: artistic crafts, furnishing accessories and fashion. In the pages dedicated to each artisan, the guide also provides useful suggestions on local activities, accommodation and restaurants .
We all have, when thinking of Tuscany, a precise image in mind: a landscape, a shade of colors, a monument, a flavor, an object. Everything tells about history, tradition, uniqueness. Craftsmanship, when we think about it, crosses all of these.
