There are Italian territories that stereotype the very image of our beautiful country. Tuscany is one of them. When you want to define Italy in the world in an image, all you need is an isolated farmhouse on top of a hill, which leads to a road adorned with cypress trees. How many times have we also been enraptured by this image? Tuscany is perhaps one of the Italian regions that most fascinates and enraptures the world for its beauty. Elegance and beauty have always been two communicating factors. Ever since a light shines on the world over the city of Florence. The end of the Middle Ages and the beginning of the Renaissance.

It is the 14th century and from here begins the renewal of man in the world, after medieval obscurantism. A fundamental step that helps to upset the habits and customs of peoples. Cities undergo a form of modernization that will change their characteristics and the artists who still thrill the human soul are flourishing today. The aesthetic sense also comes in the dishes.

This is the first time, after the Roman Empire, where eating is no longer just eating. Food as an element and path of beauty and pleasure. For the first time, a hedonistic dimension of man is reflected in typical products, those from Tuscany. Beautiful to look at and good to eat. It is a combination that is beginning to assert itself in traditional Renaissance court cuisine. The Medici are a powerful family that dominates the Tuscan territory and clashes with the other great powers of the time, Pistoia, the Maritime Republic of Pisa and Livorno, Siena, Grosseto. It is the City-States that begin to trade their goods and, logically among them, the first fruits of the territory to which

they belong.


THE TYPICAL TUSCAN PRODUCTS THAT HAVE MADE HISTORY


Certainly it is always the wine in Tuscany that prevails and that dominates the regional agricultural economy. Together with Olive Oil which, at that time, served as a reserve to illuminate the cities and the monuments that embellished them. However, Tuscany has always been a land of wheat and cereals, as well as a dairy reserve thanks to its many pastures and sheep farms. A bovine breed has maintained its history in the Casentino area and in the Val di Chiana, La Chianina, today it has become one of the most valuable breeds in the world from which cuts of Florentine wines are obtained, recognized all over the world. Tuscany is a land of sea, hills and mountains.

Extraordinary forests of ancient ancient oaks where, even today, the sacred silence of nature survives. Woods chosen by Saint Francis for his hermitage in La Verna, in the park of the Casentino Forests, where he received the stigmata. Tuscany is a wild land in Maremma, where cowboys on horseback still graze their cattle herds. Land of clay deep in the Sienese hills, where valuable vineyards and olive trees cling. Coastal sea with places of worship of contemporary worldliness: Viareggio, Forte dei Marmi, Marina di Pietrasanta. A mountain of white marble between Massa and Carrara, which gave rise to the greatest works of art of all time sculpted by Michelangelo, Bernini and Canova. Timeless vineyard hills where the art of wine dates back to the ancient Etruscans and then to the Romans: Chianti Classico DOCG, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Bolgheri are names imprinted in the memory of all wine lovers in the world. The woods of Lunigiana where the purity of the meadows and a colorful nature of flowers and aromatic herbs still resist.

But let's talk about the best-known DOP products in this region. The Lardo di Colonnata DOP, for example. Colonnata, a village perched on the white marble rocks of Carrara, a village that is confused in stone, an ancient tradition of marble quarry workers was to keep the poorest part of the pig, the fat under the skin, inside holes dug in the rock, mixing it with aromatic herbs typical of the territory, rosemary, bay leaves, and sea salt. The culture of Lardo di Colonnata still resists today and has reached the most prestigious tables in the world. The peasant intuition that today becomes cult and refinement.

Another product that unites Tuscan lands is Prosciutto Toscano DOP, which is particularly tasty and salty compared to Parma DOP and San Daniele DOP. But all typical Tuscan butcher's products are particularly savory. The reason lies in the fact that bread in Tuscany is salt-free and therefore combines only salty cold cuts of its own. A medieval and Renaissance heritage. Since the largest salt flats in the country were in the hands of the Papal States, if you wanted to buy salt you had to go to them and pay a concession fee. Florence and Tuscany have always been the champions of hatred against the Papal States and for this reason they free bread from salt and avoid contributing to the enemy.

A real dairy tradition exists in Tuscany and has its enclave in the Pienza area. The Pecorino Toscano PDO is the main interpreter.

The highest quality olive oil production is also very important for the national economy, the main DOP are Chianti Classico DOP, Lucca DOP, Terre di Siena DOP and the more generic Toscano DOP.

San Giminiano, in addition to being famous for its beautiful towers and the processing of alabaster, is important for the production of San Gimignano Saffron DOP.

Siena, on the other hand, stands out for its production of Renaissance sweets that remain the testimony of a cuisine that is not only good but also beautiful. Ricciarelli di Siena PGI are embellished with a little icing sugar to embellish them on the eyes. They become the holiday treats and the favorites of the lords of the court. Today they have reached tables all over the world, especially during the Christmas season.

We were talking about typical cereals that have been making up the most important Tuscan recipes for centuries, such as Ribollita and sumptuous peasant soups. The PGI Sorana Bean, the Garfagnana PDO Neccio Flour, the Garfagnana PGI Spelt. Chestnut forests still survive in Tuscany, where, on the other hand, in many areas of northern Italy, they are disappearing. For this reason, protection is also important for the conservation of ancient forest giants. And so here are the Chestnut of Monte Amiata IGP, the Marrone del Mugello IGP, the Marrone di Caprese Michelangelo IGP.

We are not here to list the multitude of products that are protected as Slow Food Presidia or ST or PAT. Not even De.Co., an encyclopedia would come out. But all of this stems from the history of this magnificent region. Always rich in high raw materials, from the oldest kitchens to being part of the most noble kitchens. In addition, the sense of belonging that, even here, comes from ancient parochialism (in a positive sense) that have consolidated the awareness of their uniqueness.
