Italy owns a debt with Tuscany… the language. Evolved from Tuscan Toscanadialect his supremacy ensured by Dante, who wrote the Divine Comedy in the vernacular of his birthplace, Florence, and Tuscan writers such as Petrarca and Boccaccio. But the whole Europe is in debt to Tuscany for more… its extraordinary contribution to European culture.

It was in Tuscany between the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries that the great era of humanism and the Renaissance was born and developed, movements that radically renewed the culture and art of the time, leaving a profound and indelible mark on the common civilization of Europe.

Florence was the most active centre of the Renaissance, flourishing principally through the all-powerful patronage of the Medici dynasty. Almost every eminent artistic figure from Giotto to Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo and Brunelleschi is represented here in an unrivalled gathering of churches, galleries and museums.
And Tuscany, today the cradle of modern European culture, contains treasures of every age and style, from the Etruscan theater and Roman baths at Fiesole, to the majestic Gothic buildings in the medieval town of Siena, to the exceptional art and architecture of Florence, to the amazing Piazza dei Miracoli and its Leaning Tower in Pisa. The cities of Tuscany have produced writers, scientists, architects, musicians and artists whose works have literally changed the world. The immense dome of Florence’s Duomo, designed by Brunelleschi, inspired Michelangelo’s design for the dome of St. Peter’s in Rome, and influenced architecture in towns throughout Italy. Modern science and technology have their roots in the experiments of Galileo and other researchers.
