Italian text

San Donato in Perano (municipal district of Gaiole in Chianti, Province of Siena) is located in one of the most charming and interesting areas in the entire Chianti region from a historical-landscape point of view. It has a dominating position and the area is considered an important archaeological one: the ruins would indicate the site has been inhabited since prehistoric times (8th-7th century B.C.). The two authors get the reader to the discovery of the territory. We know that in the middle of the 9th century, a population existed in the Chianti area that was characterised by very small open villages, sometimes with a church. All indications lead to hypothesis that has been a settlement in san Donato since the Etruscan-Roman period.
The villa of San Donato not only represents an important architectural structure but also a text, a sort of book that tells us very interesting and amazing stories.
