MAREMMA, A LAND OF TRADITIONS AND HISTORY

This is a land where man has lived different people from Etruscan, Romans, Aldobrandeschi family and the Medici and the Lorrain families who left works and fortifications of grandeur, almost with the intention of protecting the natural setting rather than conquering it The Etruscan necropoleis and the colonies founded by the Romans, such as Vetulonia, Roselle, Cosa or Sovana, are among the treasures of the Maremma.
