Stiappa- Sagra del Beccutino

with 1 Comment

The quaint village of Stiappa held its annual ferragosto festa – ‘Sagra del Beccutino on Sunday 15th August 2014.

Stiappa is one of the 10 villages that form le Dieci Castella (the 10 castles) in the Pesciatina valley (also known as Svizzera Pesciatina – little Switzerland).  Normally the village is quiet, however, like many of these Tuscan hill villages,
they come alive during the summer months, and especially during the festa.

Here is a post on 2015’s event

I'm a English photographer and mother living in a quaint medieval village in the hills of Tuscany, Italy. Almost every day I find myself lost in the stunning landscape and architecture of these ancient settlements. I try and portray this beauty through my images, in hope of transporting those browsing to a more peaceful and tranquil place.
