adults AUTHENTIC TUSCANY
Visit the small medieval village of Monticchiello overlooking the famous Val d’Orcia Unesco Heritage, in the triangle between Pienza and Montepulciano.
The guide of the small village, enriched with mythical stories and ancient legends, will bring the visitor back to a distant epoch in memory, for an authentic journey in a still uncontaminated land.
The village of rare beauty, with a wall almost completely intact, still has an imposing Cassero (not open to visitors), a monumental Church and wide-ranging streets and squares. In these squares, more than 50 years ago the uniqueness of the village was born, the poor Theatre of Monticchiello, which still affirms its peculiarity and projects it into every activity of the population, throughout the years.
We will visit the rooms of the Tepotratos, Museum of Traditional Tuscan Folk Theater, a place designed to stimulate emotion, a path full of suggestions, sounds, voices and visions, aimed at offering a tribute to the peasant and sharecropping civilization, to its entertainment, to his world of popular poetry as simple as it is pure.
After a typical lunch at the premises of the Cooperative, we will move in an environment or an ancient Molino a few kilometers from Monticchiello, where we will see the milling of flour and the production of bronze-drawn pasta. The family-run company has been producing organic methods since 1992 and generations have passed on ancient knowledge and respect for our land.
