Lucignano d’Asso is not to be confused with the town of the same name near Arezzo. The town consists of two streets and two churches, a few houses, an old shop, a noble home and garden and an old fountain. Crete Senesi, literally meaning Sienese clays, are very distinctive and almost resemble a lunar landscape. This is a clay landscape, crossed by winding roads, characterized by the presence of “biancane” bumps round in shape and white, giving the feeling of traveling on a sea of land and gullies, that resemble deep cuts andlacerations that open this land. Asciano is Etruscan in origin, and has a necropolis dating back to the 5th century BC. If you arrive here on the second Sunday of the month, you’ll find the “Market of Natural Clays” selling food specialities of the area, local artisan production and antique objects.
