I have always loved Montepulciano in the Val d’Orcia Tuscany. I visit every year. It is the perfect village – picturesque, pretty, medieval and on top of a hill, has the best red wine Brunello di Montepulciano in Tuscany, and also the best cheese and salami. What more could you want…It is also full of the most divine shops and artisan workshops. In Italy they are still passing on these ancient crafts. So beautiful to watch.
Below I interview a famous mosaic artist – Albo Mazzetti in his workshop in Montepulciano. If you wish a mosaic made as a present for the person who has everything contact Passion for Italy Travel. It is a great way to immortalise a building, person or animal. by Gemma Green Close
