The Mugello land, which has lived for centuries in the shade of Florence is to be found astride the watershed of the Apennines.
It is a Tuscan land, rich of history and artistic evidence and above all it is a land of different surroundings from the rugged beauty of the valleys of the Upper Mugello or Tuscany Romagna - rugged and little populated - to the sweet lines of the open basin dotted by the Mugello villages.
It is an Apennine land, beautiful and deep, with ridges covered by a great number of beech, chestnut and oak woods; semi-innate valleys cultivated as a harmonious patchwork, crossed by the Sieve river, which seems to take life from the big artificial Bilancino lake.
The Medici family who was native of this land had palaces, castles and convents built here. In the villa of Cafaggiolo, Lorenzo Magnifico escaped from the "res pubblica" to take refuge in the tranquillity of the fields. He heard the call of nature and of the land and here he played, celebrated and rediscovered the joy, beauty and life.
