Sarteano: my secret place in Tuscany
I am Sarteano, a town that mirrors the beauty, the legends, and the history, of this part of Tuscany. Yet, I am also tied to unique emotions: it is here that the Orcia is born, from here one can look out onto the Val di Chiana [Chiana Valley]. But it is my lifestyle that makes the difference: there are thirty associations and not even five thousand inhabitants.
I provide the setting for a lively theatrical, musical, and historical scene, and for so much inspiration and desire to create by young artists and craftsmen. Around me are the Abbazia di Spineto [Abbey of Spineto], Castiglioncello del Trinoro, Pietraporciana, Fontevetriana and an unspoiled nature that is all to be discovered.
