I luoghi del tempo, the festival dedicated to little-known places returns with its usual format that aims at enhancing unusual and little know places in Maremma, creating events with intellectuals, writers, artists, actors, musicians and journalists. As in the previous editions, these charming places will be the background for guided walks, concerts, interviews and tastings (and we will be present too!). A way to discover the richness of Maremma.
This year, the destinations of the I luoghi del tempo festival will be: Granaio Lorenese in Alberese, the Etruscan archeological site in Poggiotondo (Scarlino), the mine in Niccioleta (Massa Marittima) and the archeological site in San Rocco (Sorano), the mine in Marchi a Ravi and Roccastrada (tenuta La Pescaia in Sticciano scalo).
The events will take place from 29th May till 2nd June and then again on Saturday 6th and 13th June. Just like last year, we will again participate, in particular in the event on 2nd June in Sorano, in Via Cava – San Rocco. Sorano is located on a tuff rock overlooking the Lente valley. First settlements here date back to the Bronze age, before the Etruscans. A road was later carved in the stone, leading to the village, between caves used as necropolis and the ruins of a hermitage. In the 17th century, the people of Sorano dedicated a small chapel on this tuff rock to San Rocco, a pilgrim on the way to Rome in the 16th century.
