Look, taste, wear: 3 things to do from Sovicille to Monteroni

A tailor-made route for food, craft and fashion lovers

What makes a trip perfect? The fact that all your senses are fulfilled in every way.


Here is the perfect day out for even the most demanding traveller, a trip around a magical corner of the Crete Senesi, where the stars of the show are the golden hilly landscapes, typical food products and two handcrafted items that deserve a mention: “Vetus” porcelain and Claudio Maccari's design accessories.


In this landscape of clay, the best place to start is with the vast range of jars, vases, containers and dishes, made using techniques that transform terracotta into items resembling wood, in warm colours and devoid of ornamentation, like the old peasant tradition.


Along the Via Francigena, your gaze will be enchanted at the sight of age-old castles, mills and tiny chapels: symbols of a land that is still, in many ways, old-fashioned and steeped in tradition.
