Landscapes of Tuscany by Mauro Maione

Landscapes of Tuscany by Mauro Maione | Wine, Sustainability and Social Media | Scoop.it
Found in the heart of Italy, there is a land where time stands still. With its silvery olive groves, fields of sunflowers, vineyards and stone farms, ancient medieval castles, and its enchanting Renaissance cities such as Florence, it can be said that Tuscany encompasses all of the many unique qualities of Italy.
Alejandro Moreno S.'s insight:

"In a world where the destructive habits of greedy humans are becoming more and more evident and painfully effective, to discover that there is a land where time seems to stand still, is a caress for the soul. Found in the heart of Italy, things here have changed little since the 10th century BC, when the region was inhabited by the Etruscans, and whose descendants are found in almost all of the villages in this region.'
