The Italian region of Tuscany gave rise to some of the most significant political, economic and artistic cities in Western history, such as Pisa, Siena and Florence. This lecture will explore the great histories and art of various Tuscan cities; as well the general lore associated with one of the most breathtaking and best-preserved country sides in all the world.
