In these four volumes we find the history and memories of a region deeply rooted in tradition, but also rich in numerous and surprising innovations. The images assume an enormous value as witness to the profound changes that have taken place in time. The volumes create an imaginary voyage through Tuscany: from the mountainous areas to the Chianti hills and on to the shorelines. An itinerary rich in geographic, social and cultural peculiarities in search of crafts of the past and of new activities. A voyage to discover the changes in the landscape not only in geographical terms but also in historic, artistic, social and economic terms, and to capture the unusual aspects that escape a superficial view. The hard work of a 19th century farmer is mediated by the beauty of the landscape that surrounds him, the result of the harmony between man and the land. But these images go beyond nostalgic and melancholy views. In them we find a portrait of reality, not imagined but lived, in all its quotidian aspects.
