Art and culture

Marciano, an Etruscan settlement, played an important role in Roman times thanks to the presence of influential landowning families. During the medieval period, Marciano's castle stood out from the others in the area for being a military settlement. Disputed between Florence and Siena, it was the location of the famous Battle of Scannagallo, also known as the Battle of Marciano. Inside the small village, the well-preserved fortress built in medieval times by the Florentines, still stands today.

History and Traditions

The Valdichiana has always been a land of great artists, and Marciano della Chiana is no exception. In fact, it hosts important international figures working in the fields of fashion and in food and wine excellence. The most famous is Bruno Tommassini, an important stylist who speaks about the beauties of his land and the reasons that led him to choose this village as the headquarters for his businesses.

Excellence and Territory

Discover the area on a bicycle, savoring smells and sensations in a leap back in time that recalls the old great bike challenges of Coppi and Bartali. All of this can be lived again in Marciano thanks to the “Chianina Ciclostorica,” an important bicycle revival event that has attracted fans from all over the world in recent years. Then there is L'Oste Custode (The Host Keeper), who tells us about the traditional dishes that come back to life on the tables of the many restaurants in the area.
