SAN QUIRICO D’ORCIA
History and spas of this etruscan town

published on02/05/2018 sertion Blog
The town’s origins go back to the Etruscan Age , and today its medieval past is still evident.It lies in the province of Siena along the Via Francigena – the old Pilgrim road from Canterbury to Rome and beyond to Jerusalem. It is close to what is now the Cassia road.
It lies on the higher ground that separates Val d’Orcia from the Val d’Asso in a place with breathtaking scenery.The village developed along one main street which was an attractive location for many shops, artisan workshops and inns.A weekly market helped the local economy thanks also to a Bill passed in 1385 allowing exemption from paying duties and taxes. Along the Via Francigena was the Grange of the Santa Maria della Scale Hospital of Siena which served as an agricultural warehouse , and also as a hospital for the pilgrims.In the 1400’s the town’s defence structure was restored and strengthened more than once.

THREE DIFFERENT RURAL STYLES
Val di Chiana, Val d’Orcia and Maremma

published on02/05/2018 sertion Blog
These three different styles involve the home typology .
The Aretino style usually has a portico and a loggia – a covered outdoor area with arches – whereas the Florentine style has only the portico, whilst the Sienese style is more often than not without the portico. In Val di Chiana and other areas of the Sienese and Aretine Chianti area some homes even have a dovecote.
In the Val d’Orcia ,part of the Siena province and at the foot of Mount Amiata, the countryside is at its most breathtaking; the iconic cypress trees dotting the landscape and lining the dirt tracks leading up to some pretty impressive properties, which in the past were home to wealthy landowners and the peasants who lived in the annex buidings.
In the Maremma area, country homes are more likely to be of the business typology and are more suited to the work of intensive agriculture and cattle raising.

The region of Tuscany gives financial aid to those wishing to renovate abandoned country homes in rural areas.This was laid out in a law approved by the regional government in Tuscany and aimed at avoiding using new land to build when older properties could be renovated.
The President of the Tuscany region says: ‘’ Protecting our countryside means both not building indiscriminately and both renovating the many splendid properties that are part of our architectural heritage in the countryside, which we often see in abandoned conditions.The aim of this law is to encourage people to carry out renovation and reconstruction work on these abandoned properties and by doing so avoid using new land,.

According to a recent article in the Sole 24 Ore newspaper,Italy has put the economic crisis behind and things are finally looking up.After a few years with a stagnant market,the property sector is moving again.The article tells us that in the next few years it will be the non –residential sector to reap the benefits with over 7 billion euros of investments.We are talking about the office sector , and also urban development ,which will benefit from around 5 billion euros of these investments.
The trend will see people wanting to renovate and convert historic palaces rather than pulling buildings down and starting from scratch. The external front aspects will be left intact but the internal spaces will be completely updated .Obviously the situation isn’t the same all over Italy - this positive trend is visible in Milan and Rome, but not in other Italian cities.
