Two hundred pages accompanied by images of an emerging photographer, Alessandro Puccinelli, famous world-wide, (texts by Gilberto Bedini). At you fingertips, all the secrets and knowledge to explore a land that is experiencing a time of re-discovery. It is a story of an open-air museum with its villages, churches and historic buildings.

On the occasion of the centennial of the death of one of its most illustrious guests, Giovanni Pascoli, the book will be available in bookstores in the Italian and English versions. "Lands of Tuscany: The Serchio Valley", published by PubliEd and edited by Alessandro Stefani.
Among the many stories collected in "Lands of Tuscany: The Serchio Valley", there is a chapter dedicated to Il Ciocco, the largest tourist complex founded in the late 60's, with the story of the Marcucci Family. The story begins from the time Luigi (Guelfo's father - founder of the resort) emigrated to the United States during the beginning of the 1900 where, in Chicago, he began his own company in the bakery industry.
The book is an important historical and nature manual and on the other hand an intelligent tourist guide that is partucularly notable for being the first publication to have a unified vision of the Serchio Valley.
Alessandro Stefani, Editor of the book, was particularly satifsfied with the book."We wanted to narrate the poetry of a land that has managed to retain its originality without losing momentum for innovation. A complicated challenge that can be overcome in the Serchio Valley. The many individualities of this land are accompanied by photographs and texts. I hope this will be an invitation to reflection and at the same time to travel.
