A century of pictures of agriculture in Tuscany Italian/English edition
This book is meant as a picture guide to the various agricultural aspects of Tuscany, providing a visual idea of the history and the cultural and social identity of one of the most eloquent, the most Italian, of Italian regions. In the manifold variety of its landscapes Tuscany sums up the complexity of the man-nature relationship. The economy of Tuscany has achieved a maturity and an equilibrium in quality agriculture that represents one of the richest and most progressive aspects of the Italian and European economic panorama. Even the most recent economic development is no more than another step in the evolution of that ever-changing relationship of man and his environment, where the landscape, basically "natural" in its varied aspects, is integrally, or almost so, a human creation, a historical, cultural and social product.
