|4/6 You too can own a fresco
You may visit the workshop of Antonio De Vito, surrounded by a landscape straight out of a Renaissance painting, a stone’s throw from the atelier and home of Giambologna. On the ancient walls of a tower dating back to the year 1300, Antonio creates frescoes using techniques inherited from the artists of the Renaissance. These frescoes can be detached from the walls to become a beautiful and highly unusual addition to your home. “La Bottega” welcomes all those anxious to discover the well-kept secrets of Tuscany and who would like to participate in the creation of a fresco or fragment of a wall painting and acquire a unique work of art born in a workshop where time has stopped at the fourteenth century.

|6/6 The Truffles of San Miniato
The area surrounding this charming medieval town is famous for its plentiful truffles. It is possible to take part in a truffle hunt, following the dogs which are specially trained for just this task by their owners, who collect these priceless tubers and who are a source of inexhaustible information. In the squares and streets of the town, during the last weekend of November, there is a very colorful festival in their honor, with dozens of stalls selling truffles of every shape and size.
