Tuscany is a region in central Italy with an area of over 8,500 square miles. It is known for its rich landscapes, history and influence on high culture, as well as being one of the most popular holiday destination in Italy, with the main tourist spots of Florence, Pisa and Chianti attracting visitors from around the world. Seaside tourism accounts for approximately 40% of tourist arrivals. Seven Tuscan locations have been designated Heritage sites, including the centre of Florence, the Cathedral Square of Pisa and the Medici Villa and Gardens. In 2012, Florence was the world’s 89th most visited city, and the region has over 120 protected nature reserves. Tuscany is known as the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. The subsoil in the region is high in mineral resources, with iron ore, copper and mercury mines found all around. Agriculture contributes heavily to Tuscany’s economy, with vegetables, rice, tobacco, beets and sunflowers being grown in the swamplands, and cereals, potatoes, olives and grapes grown in inland. Simplicity is vital in Tuscan cuisine, and famous produce comes from the region, such as Florentine steak, Chiana Valley beef, San Miniato truffles, Leccino olives and Chianti wine.
In 1883, Carlo Collodi, born in Florence, wrote the book The Adventures of Pinocchio, which later became a Disney film. One of the world’s most famous landmarks, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, was built on unpredictable marshland in 1372 in Tuscany, and stands at 55 metres high, with a leaning angle of over 4 degrees. In 1339, Tuscany made the decision to pave their roads, which influenced other European locations to do the same, making cities more accessible. Following the fall of the Roman Empire, the Italian language revolved around a series of dialects spoken across the country, and the language spoken today is based on the Tuscan dialect, due to the cultural strides the region took during the Renaissance period. Florence is the birthplace of the piano, which was invented by Bartolomeo Cristofori in the 18th century. Gucci was founded in Florence by Guccio Gucci in 1921 and is still one of the most famous fashion brands today. The flag consists of red and white stripes, which are the traditional colours of the region, with a Pegasus in the centre- influenced by a coin made by Florentine artist Benvenuto Cellini in 1537. The Pegasus was the symbol of the Tuscan National Liberation Committee during the Second World War.
