The most famous mark of Italian tourism is Tuscany, in every way: in landscape, history, monuments, typical products, food. The Tuscan style is famous worldwide and influences the architectural styles: when I was travelling in Australia I met some architects who were asked to plan buildings in Tuscany style. But not the whole Tuscany is the stereotypical Tuscany. A different Tuscany exists, with its own flavor and a different landscape. That is the area of Mount Amiata, between the provinces of Grosseto and Siena, a sour and essential land full of beeches, spruces and chestnut woods, while the classic olive tree Tuscan landscape is rare.
