The Elegant Summer of My Pink World

My Pink World is certainly the ideal spot for those who love to dress well, starting with the costumes: “many have bright colourful sections –– Monica tells me –– and are distinctively elegant and vivid. The fashionable ones this year, for her, are in pink –– which gives us the name of the store –– white, blue and gold, or white and beige, found in the brand new Twinset and Verdissima designer collections (both very popular brands). While for him the top brand is Bikkembergs®: both long and short swimsuits, but also briefs, boxers, slip-ons, tank tops, underwear and t-shirts (to combine with the swimsuit), always crafted with class, simplicity and style”.

Chicco, the best pizza in town!

But let’s get to the tasting that was dedicated to us: we start with the curious, opulent, speciality of the pizzeria, that “Scarpetta” which refers to the same all-Italian custom, made with ‘Authentic Integrated Grinding Flour’ from the famous mill mentioned above ..

From the multimedia museum to the mine train

The visit to the Abbadia San Salvatore Mining Museum Park is structured in three parts, each one fascinating. The first is represented by the multimedia museum The ‘Geography of Mercury’, where, like a script, everything revolves around this metal element and immerses the viewer in the narrative of mining life: the myth, the territory, the work, the men and the material constitute the chapters of the story; multimedia technologies take the visitor on a fascinating journey: “there are numerous mining parks ̶̶  explains Massimo Sabatini, president of the Terre di Toscana Consortium ̶̶  but very few focused on mercury and it is no coincidence that we are twinned with Idrija in Slovenia and Almadén in Spain which, together with Abbadia, formed the three main poles of mercury production in Europe. In the museum you will find films, videos and oral testimonies of those who spent their lives in mining.”

I fell in love with this place, and with the help of my father Paolo, Alessio, and many other really smart guys, we made this dream come true”.

The emporium for dreamers

“VIAnDANTE  – Massimiliano explains – is for explorers, dreamers and the curious who follow a path so as to nourish the body, mind and soul”. We are in the centre of San Quirico d’Orcia, in the middle of the Via Francigena: “We were inspired by the itinerary of Sigeric, the Archbishop of Canterbury, who began the journey in 990 AD and during the journey noted the stages of the route thereby creating the oldest extant record of the Via Francigena”.
