The feeling that warns each of us is to come to a magical place where time has stopped, with the ruins of a fortress at the center of a large wild and primitive area but able to give back intact all legendary charm of the Middle Ages. In a turreted castle, overlooking the south coast of the Etruscans, the ancient Volterra, and the fertile valley of Casciana, which gradually opens with extraordinary landscapes, lived the famous Countess Matilde di Canossa, daughter of the Marquis of Tuscany Boniface II, and the Countess Beatrice di Lorena. The Great Countess, as she was called after a large donation to the Church of Rome, became famous during the “investiture controversy”, in which she sided with Pope Gregory VII.
