A trip to rural Italy is always a dreamlike step back in time and on our recent visit, we walked in the footsteps of Michelangelo and became Renaissance-era sculptors, learning marble-sculpting under the tutelage of a member of the famed Frilli family. This experiential journey was one of 21 put together by Tuscany Again. They include craftsmanship, nature and food and wine. Each is based on an aspect of quintessential Tuscany and led by a specialist. These not-for-profit experiences are designed to help OutThere travellers access authenticity in the Italian countryside. It’s the brainchild of Leonardo Ferragamo, whose aim it is to share the spirit of his home as well as his family’s connections.
