Also known as the Land of Artists (and we’ll see why later), the Mugello features landscapes that range from near-impenetrable scrub to fertile valley floors. This area is prime territory for bovine breeding: think Chianina, the centuries-old breed that was prominent as early as the Etruscan age, and today used in the production of prestigious meats like the Vitellone Bianco dell’Appennino Centrale IGP (white steer).
After a visit to the farm, the players will head off on a horseback ride through the lands of the Medici and will visit Vicchio, the birthplace of Giotto and Fra Angelico. To finish off the day in style, a special cooking class will run, in which they’ll learn how to prepare tortelli di patate (potato ravioli) using the age-old recipe.
