This is a special festival, more similar to a travel, where people try together with writers, artists, musicians, thinkers to answer some question such as “what changes do we have to do in our lives?”; “what direction can I take?” and so on. These are just some of the questions that will be focused during the festival in the open air. Traveling slowly along an old route allows modern traveller to fell the soul of Tuscany and become part of one of the most famous landscapes of Italy. The slowness gives the traveller a closer look and enables him to understand the nuances of this land.
