Totally and visibly permeated by human activity, never deserted though uninhabited, the Tuscan countryside is a “machine” tuned to man’s vision, fatigue and centuries-old patience in creating well-being and prosperity. Its distinctive features, and aspects tied to utility and everyday existence, are transfigured in a plan of superior beauty that becomes its fundamental and, at times, dominant feature. In this collection of stupendous views, shapes and colours speak the millenarian language of grace and harmony, offering everyone the possibility to contemplate an anthology of pictures and impressions of the Tuscan countryside along with several sober views of the architectures that define it. Unlike other photographic portraits of the Tuscan landscape, this one decides to tell things as they are: it does not resort to thrilling sunsets, theatrical lighting effects or other stratagems. It neither travesties nor disguises the Tuscan countryside, but instead distils its intrinsic, sedimented and historical beauty in the passing of the seasons, without concessions to the picturesque. And in so doing, it sublimates and makes it absolute by virtue of the observation that without exaggerating, the countryside of Tuscany is, of itself, a form of art: popular, humble, silent and concrete art.
