The frst mention of San Quirico village dates back to the 10th century when its church was documented. During the medieval period its inhabitants had a long and bloodied fight with nearby castles, especially Castelvecchio, which as the time belonged to Florence. At the end of the 14th century, and only a few of its inhabitants remaining. The republic of lucca trying to increase the castle population, offered a 10 year tax free policy to anybody who wanted to settle there. More history on its way.
Photographer & Founder
I'm an English photographer who for nearly ten years, lived in a quaint medieval village in the hills of Tuscany, Italy. Almost every day I found myself lost in the magnificent landscapes and stunning architecture of these ancient settlements. My aim is to portray this beauty through my images and books, in hope of transporting those browsing to a more peaceful and tranquil place.
