APUANEE ALPS : THE TUSCAN "DOLOMITES"  

CARRARAexperiences

At the borders of Liguria and Emila Romagna, white "alps"  stand overlook the sea and trace the DNA of Garfagnana and Lunigiana.... all the experience to live it

The Apuanee Alps: always snow-capped peaks of statuary white marble that soar above the sea enclosing the green valleys designed by Garfagnana and Lunigiana in a contrast of colors that it is only stoped by the stones of castles and pristine villages. The Garfagnana lets itself be crossed by the emerald of the Serchio that ,sinuous and  untouched, watering chestnut forests, small villages, creating unique places such as the Cave of the Wind and the nature reserve of the Orecchiella. The road climbs along a deep rocky gorge, to lead to the "Wind Cave", a natural cave where you can admire stalrates, stalagmites of various types and colors, columns, rivers and underground lakes, and lets you glimpse its villages that with its medieval bridges trace its DNA. And then ... Castelvecchio Pascoli, is located the villa where the Italian poet Giovanni Pascoli lived between 1895 and 1912 The house, which is open to the public, still holds the original furniture and desks on which the poet worked. In the garden of the villa, there is the chapel where the poet is buried. Then Gallicano and Vergemoli village.... Castelnuovo di Garfagnana with its "Rocca Ariostesca", the majestic defensive building dating back to the 12th century and Castiglione di Garfagnana and Pieve Fosciana, surrounded by walls and ramparts the "Castrum Leonis, " Roman, Castle of the Lion, evolved in "Castiglione" and fairy villages protected by its fortresses : the Fortress of the Verrucole located on a rocky ridge and Moltalfonso Fortress.
The Lunigiana, the "moon slice " shape of the river port of Luni founded by the Romans in 177 BC at the mouth of the Magra River, between Liguria and Tuscany.  Lunigiana is a land of passage where even today it relives the charm of the Middle Ages. A Middle Ages that is felt in the castles that belonged to the Malaspina and hosted Dante; Romanesque pieves; in the mighty Medici walls of Caprigliola and in its elegant tower erected by the bishops conti of Luni. Border land, crossroads of different cultures: in fact, a dialect with Ligurian, Tuscan, Emilian influences and even cuisine combines traditions of several regions. Land beaten at all times by armies and pilgrims, flocks and caravans of merchants who make them "a crossroads of roads to civilization". This is where the first Tuscan stretch of the ancient Via Francigena that connected the Po Valley to the Tyrrhenian Sea is located. On that same road have been recovered trails and mule tracks inserted in trekking routes among the most evocative, dotted with dozens of castles, isolated towers and fortresses that appear sudden, perched on the hills and among the green of the valleys, silent witnesses of the past

CARRARA: DAVID'S MARBLE FROM THE QUARRY TO THE TASTE CROSSING ART

alpe apuanee cave marmo fantiscritti nicoli

 Today it will be the white heart of Tuscany that will fascinate and excite us in the palate as in the views crystallized by the master sculptors. Michelangelo's children!!

  Arriving at the top, the white heart of Tuscany, everything around us will talk about Marble and we will stop right in Colonnata, the village born to welcome the workers who made del Marmo life and lifestyle: we would understand in our foodies pit stop where food "artists" will make us appreciate the magic that marble can doing when it smoothes and transforms, making this cured meat that is Lardo's here simply unforgettable .. only after tasting it could we understand what it is! Discovering the smells that naturally escape from the marble coffer, tearing the lid off, will predict that Lardo will not be what we could taste when it melts in our palate in thousands of flavours that, here, say they are dietetic because of the happiness hormones that will devour any added calories ... and it will be true well- being! The endless views will have already excited and made us ready to venture into his white marble heart and so we will do it! jumping to the jeep, the same as the miners, we would exhibit the quarries from the inside where we will see shining art galleries, natural art workshops that will only anticipate our next stop where we will meet the artists whose skilled hands will be able to realize real masterpieces contemporaries who can also embellish your residence! [....]
