In the heart of Val di Cecina between Volterra and the Etruscan coast lies the dreamy village of Querceto, surrounded by fields and forests. The medieval castle of the Ginori Lisci family covers almost the entire Querceto. Querceto has been completely restored and has a lively social cultural life
The dreamy village of Mazzolla, close to Volterra, lies between the fields and forests and was originally an ancient settlement of Etruscans. In the center is the villa of the family Viti, situated with style elements from the Middle Ages and 18th century. It overlooks the nature reserve of Berignone.
Today Borgo Pignano is an elegant countryside hotel in Tuscany, but like other spots in this glorious countryside, it was first settled during Etruscan times. Large stones at the base of the church, villa and some of the outlying walls are vestiges of the people who lived here over 2,500 years ago.
In one of the most important cities of the Etruscan city federation are several historical properties of the family Inghirami. Together with local foundations they form the logistical core of the masterclasses and projects, initiated by the ACCADEMIA LIBERA NATURA E CULTURA.
