Tuscany is for its harmonious nature and art that surrounds and engages the visitor an ideal destination for the organization of your wedding.
Culture, art, elegance are the masters in cities such as Florence , Siena, Lucca and Pisa, but in the heart of the Siena province there is a pearl , a small town of inestimable beauty , known and appreciated all over the world : San Gimignano.
A few weeks ago we found ourselves in Pancole , in the municipality of San Gimignano, during a photo shoot for the farm holidays “I Borghi ” and at the end of the work we thought to go to rediscover the smells, the colors more intense and more hidden in one of the most beautiful places of our region.
The camera, faithful traveling companion , follows us everywhere we go and is ready to tell what our eyes see .
Surrounded by green hills and vineyards that produce mainly the popular Vernaccia wine , we arrive in the city of the ancient towers . We park near Sant ‘ Agostino , sacred building that collects inside frescoes by Benozzo Gozzoli , Del Pollaio and many others artists. We pass through streets that bear the mark of history and go along the archeology museum and the Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art .
Just within this space we found a few years ago to photograph the civil marriage of Robert and Paola Viani owners of the renowned Locanda Viani in San Gimignano. The story of that happy day , when we were doing wedding photography surrounded by paintings and works of art will leave that to another time , and we continue our tour coming up in Piazza della Cisterna where we had to make a selfie as many tourists present :-).
The signs of the past and the strong cultural identity are felt powerful throwing his eyes to the sky and admiring the imposing towers hallmark of the city and the wealth that it once was. We arrived at the steps leading to the Dome and think of how many young brides have walked up the steps with the heart in her throat. To the side of the “Collegiata” church stands the “Palazzo del Podesta”, the town hall , in the room where Dante surrounded by remarkable frescoes civil ceremonies take place .
Deciding to get married in this city means to seek romantic atmosphere of other times , it means squares and narrow streets that tell of centuries of history, the means to decide to live in that magical time of the marriage that UNESCO has recognized as the “city of the World Cultural and natural ” .
