A journey full of emotions is the one that leads to the Mausoleum of Curzio Malaparte on Mount Spazzavento. A place out of time, from where you can admire Prato and Val Bisenzio, erected in memory of the journalist and writer who had expressed the desire to rest in that very spot.
Following in the footsteps of Aldo Palazzeschi we approach Florence. The writer set "Le Sorelle Materassi" on the hills of Coverciano, an ironic and cutting novel that masterfully describes the peasant and petty bourgeois world of the time.
Another great storyteller of his time was Vasco Pratolini, who revisited Florence’s ancient streets with new eyes and whose writing touches the heart by giving voice and dignity to the poor during the Fascist regime.
Those who love police dramas can discover the dark side of Florence in the mysteries of Marco Vichi, a young Tuscan author whose detective, Franco Bordelli, investigates the crimes of the 1960s.
Siena is depicted differently in the stories of Federigo Tozzi, who shows a proud, inaccessible city where the characters navigate the solitude and difficulty of everyday life.
