An ancient town with Lombardic roots, Lajatico was once the “castle” of the Pannocchieschi Counts and then the Bishop of Volterra, before being conquered by Pisa and later Florence. In recent years, the town has become an international tourism destination thanks to the tenor Andrea Bocelli, who was born here and where he created his famous Theatre of Silence.
