Damien Wignys much-awaited guide covers eastern Tuscany, including Arezzo, Cortona, and the Casentino up to Sansepolcro. This mysterious and austere landscape is rich in wonders. It is the land of Piero della Francesca, whose masterpieces can be admired in Sansepolcro, Arezzo and Monterchi. It is also where Fra Angelico painted two Annunciations that are among the most important canvases of the Quattrocento. For admirers of Romanesque art, Casentinos castles and churches in their unchanging surroundings transport the visitor straight back to the Middle Ages. Dante also lived in this region after being exiled from Florence. Damien Wignys book is structured in three parts: Itineraries, Monuments and Readings. The many photos of featured works are in colour. Antonio Natali, Director of the Uffizi in Florence, wrote the foreword. Damien Wigny is the author of acclaimed travel guides to Tuscany.

“Het gaat om een atypische reisgids voor het oosten van Toscane, geduldig samengesteld, geslepen en gepolitoerd door de Belg Damien Wigny die in de streek woont en zich hier ontpopt tot een kenner van de Renaissanceschilderkunst.” – Staalkaart
