O que você fará
"Genius loci" is the latin expression for the "spirit of the place": let's experience it together in Pian dei Giullari. I have been living in the area for many years and I am still astonished by the calm, the beauty and the mystery beneath the panorama you can catch from here. Starting from the city centre - Piazza della Calza (close to Porta Romana) - we will walk up to Pian dei Giullari hills through a narrow, country and romantic road (45 minutes - easy walking). In Pian dei Giullari we will enjoy the"genius loci" of the ancient borgo where Galileo Galilei had his residence in 1631. In the same area we will discover the beauty of several ancient villas and churches trying to get inside the spirit of the place where famous warriors, scientists and jesters lived. Walking will be followed by indoor activity: let's have a stop at Villa Monteripaldi where, hosted in my house and delighted by a sweet landscape from my terrace, we will experience how to cook an ancient traditional Tuscan soup - "la pappa al pomodoro" - a dish made by bread and tomato. It's an old recipe that can easily be duplicated in your own country to remember your journey.

I am a social scientist with a background in lifestyles and health activism and major in urban sociology. I worked for the University of Florence for 14 years. Academic world was too self-reverential for me. So this year I decided to open up to world. Walking, eating well, enjoying the beauty of nature are all tips of my wellness program.
Onde você estará
Together we will discover the beauty of both the local nature and of the ancient Villas and churches of Pian dei Giullari, a hilly area of Florence with a small and picturesque village. Here Galileo Galilei had his residence at Villa Il Gioiello after his trial and abjuration. We will go through the beauty of two special hidden spots, Arcetri and Monteripaldi, a solitary but full of history venue.
