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.
