Photographer's Note

This is an Italian village with a difference, it doesn’t have a piazza… it has a pool.

In the heart of Tuscany, along the antique pilgrim way "Via Francigena" connecting Canterbury (U.K) with Rome, you will find the fascinating village: Bagno Vignoni.

The tiny village centre is a large rectangular basin in which hot thermal spring waters flow from its underground volcanic origins. The healing properties of the thermal waters in Bagno Vignoni were discovered first by the Etruscans and then by the Romans - great lovers and connoisseurs of thermal baths. Illustrious visitors such as Pope Pius Piccolomini , Saint Catherine of Siena, Lorenzo de Medici, not to mention poets and writers through the ages that have all enjoyed of the therapeutic waters of the village.
