Tuscany is a landscape whose cultural construction is complicated and multi-layered. It is this very complexity that this book seeks to untangle. By revealing hidden histories, we learn how food, landscape and architecture are intertwined, as well as the extent to which Italian design and contemporary consumption patterns form a legacy that draws upon the Romantic longings of a century before. In the process, this book reveals the extent to which Tuscany has been constructed by Anglos — and what has been distorted, idealized and even overlooked in the process. “Under Lasansky’s meticulous eye, everything from rural life to local cuisine, Pinocchio to agriturismo, reveals a modern romanticized Tuscan past, no less recently constructed as it is historically suggestive”.
