Italy, and Tuscany in particular, are the home of “Beauty” -“Il Bello” in all its forms and representations.
Artisans and Artists are a big part of life in Tuscany but their work is often hidden. They put passion and heart in their work but, everyday difficulties, as well as today’s lack of interest for anything requiring time and that is not cheap and disposable, make life hard for talented and creative small activities in our cities.
Chiara’s Tuscany blog started as a project with a double aim: Creating Experiences to share a new way of learning the Italian language and exploring Tuscany & Promoting skilled artisans and independent businesses, whose work is slowly disappearing in our fast moving society.
While working at this, a side project also started.
Fuelled by the common passion for phytotherapy, natural remedies and our Etruscan heritage, we created a series of creative Workshops inspired to Nature, Botanical Cosmetology and Etruscan knowledge .
Our Team has gradually grown; this is a story of passion, friendship and a bit of madness.
You can read more about our adventure and passion on OMA magazine ( Associazione Osservatorio dei Mestieri d’Arte) . We would like to thank for her interest Federica Sali for the lovely article able to capture our “Etruscan Spirit”
