About the neighbourhood
Volterra, a haven of Etruscan, Roman, Medieval and Rennaissance art, dominates the Cecina Valley, 550 metres above sea level, affording a spectacular view as far as the sea.

but in the undefiled surrounding countryside, a slow traditional way
of life and its age-old tradition of alabaster carving.
This elusive stronghold requires careful and patient attention for it
