One week ago I began writing about my travel in Tuscany starting by the end: Florence. I started from the end because of my will to let you know my goal; In those days I was travelling for work and, at the end of my Tuscany travel, I had a love story to tell, an amazing wedding on the Tuscany hills near Florence.
Today I’m going to tell you about the beginning of my Tuscany travel, the path that I followed to get to the goal and to find the new ispiration that I told you.
Thanks of this Tuscan scenery my travel started in the best way. There’s alway a road to go and in this case I felt so lucky to start from here
In the days before the wedding in Florence I traveled towards Siena and Pienza to see the well renowned Tuscan scenery provided by the iconic pictures of Val D’Orcia and other places.
I felt this travel so necessary after my busy months in London; I felt inside of me the need of places where to rest and leave my eyes and imagination free.
Obviously I feel lucky to live in a city where my imagination is more than stimulated, London knows how to let your mind free in certain ways, but in front of a Tuscan scenery i found my thoughts different and I found myself relaxed, in peace. Is good to come back for the season, is good to see places that, with my work, I can find always ispiration and a visual satisfaction.
The best of the Italian countryside
I was there, in front of the best of the Italian countryside and I thought at the road made to be there, at the road that I made until now in my life.
Photography keeps me in touch with the idea of time almost everyday but there are places and moments where this feeling is stronger. The Italian countryside is a good place to stop and think and so in those places I made up my mind to take time for myself and just enjoy the beauty that surrounded me.
I spent a couple of minutes in front of that road, I took the necessary time to portrait it and I was impressed about how the nature modeled by human could be so beautiful. Tuscany is a perfect place to notice this, that’s why i consider it one of the best Italian countryside. Here from the Renaissance the man keeps on working to bend and mold the nature in a special way. Tuscan scenery are like paintings because of their perfection and their sense of naturalness; It may seems everything so natural but behind those sceneries there’s the patience and the will of the man.
Somehow this concept must be applied at the work that everyone of us do to preserve and aim for the beauty.
Tuscany now is well renowned everywhere in the world as an excellence and pride of all Italians; it came from years an eager and profound search for beauty, it came from a meaning that born in the renaissance.
The will of doing beautiful things, the will at the poetry and the uniqueness of the choices in respect of what surround us are concepts at the base of a contemporary revolution.
