Lucignano

 

Lucignano is a small town in the southern part of Tuscany. It lays at the boundary between Arezzo and Siena’s provinces.

I spent my entire life asking myself why foreigners always wanted to see this little old town. Loats of them also picked it as wedding venue!

I was curious also because in this remote town we can find an astonishing piece of pure Beauty: the ‘Albero della Vita‘ (Tree of Life) also known as ‘Albero d’Oro‘ (Golden Tree).

It’s a reliquary made of gold and coral with a tree shape: 120 years were necessary to complete this stunning object that still radiates Beauty, Light and a deep sense of spirituality.

Moreover, I discovered that the doors in Lucignano are absolutely marvellous!

Enjoy!

Versione italiana

Lucignano. Al confine tra la provincia di Arezzo e Siena.

Ho passato una vita intera a chiedermi perché mandrie di stranieri facessero il loro “pellegrinaggio in Toscana” passando sempre (anche) da Lucignano.

Questa piccolissima cittadina mi ha sempre incuriosito anche perché ospita l’Albero della Vita o Albero d’Oro: un bellissimo reliquiario a forma di albero dorato.
Ci sono voluti più di 120 anni per costruirlo e il risultato è semplicemente purissima Bellezza: oro, corallo, luce, spiritualità e fascino terreno.
Un’opera tremendamente affascinante.

Inoltre ho notato con piacere quanto siano belle le porte a Lucignano!
