Maremma

Maremma: a mix of wild countryside, thermal baths, beaches and relics of the Etruscan age, the Maremma area offers many interesting spots.

Product Description With stunning illustrations and color photographs, this expanded edition of In Maremma recounts the restoration of a dilapidated 1950s farmhouse in southern Tuscany. Beautifully written, witty, and concise, it recounts the process by which they became initiated into a part of Italian life foreigners rarely see. The pleasures of the olive harvest and picking wild asparagus are juxtaposed with the vagaries of political corruption and self-perpetuating bureaucracy. Landscape and weather provide the stuff of reverie, as do the benefits of boredom and the longing for peanut butter. A celebration and exploration of a little-known part of Italy, In Maremma is a fond if sometimes critical corrective to other more rapturous portrayals of Tuscany.

Maremma is a vast area of ​​Tuscany, a perfect microcosm that extends between the provinces of Livorno and Grosseto. Dante in the Divine Comedy identified the boundaries between "Cecina and Corneto" (Tarquinia). A unique feature of the Maremma is the variety of its territory: crystal clear sea, long beaches or impervious rocks, mountains covered with dense woods, lake and flat areas, green cultivated hills and natural thermal areas. A timeless area, which has its roots in ancient civilizations. Here the Etruscans and subsequently the Romans prospered for centuries, leaving important evidence, as shown by the Etruscan cities of Populonia and Roselle, and the finds throughout the territory. Then came the Aldobrandeschi who ruled in the dark ages of the Middle Ages, leaving high towers, castles and fortified villages such as Santa Fiora and Sovana. Even the Medici first, and the Lorraine later, lived in these lands, as the mighty Medici walls of Grosseto remind us. In fact, it was the Medici who began the reclamation of the Maremma, which ended after the Second World War. But it is not only culture and landscape, in fact the Maremma is also an area rich in typical products to taste and savor with a good glass of wine. Sea, hills and mountains blend perfectly in the typical dishes of this area such as acquacotta.
