Where you’ll be

Sinalunga, Toscana, Italy

The council of Sinalunga is in the province of Siena, at a height of 364m above sea level, and has a population of approximately 11,000 inhabitants. Sinalunga is appreciated for its numerous frescoes such as Giovanni’s “Benvenuto” (Welcome), the Saints of Titan and Sodom. You can also visit the medieval villages of Rigomagno, Farnetella and Scrofiano. Founded around the VII century, Sinalunga, whose name for a long time was Asinalunga, is only documented in historical archives from the XII century onwards. At the time its territory was a dominion of the Scialenga Counts under the jurisdiction of Siena. Its parish, named after St. Peter at Mensulas was however part of the territory and mentioned in deeds from as early as the VIII century. Under Siennese protection, Sinalunga soon became a frontier bastion against the Palio town’s historical enemies. In 1269, when the struggle between the two republics of Siena and Florence had already been raging for a while, it became a safe haven for the Siennese on the run after the ruinous battle of Colle. In 1289 Siena decided to occupy and annex the fortified village within its boundaries. The inhabitants of Sinalunga rebelled in vain against this decision more than once: one instance being when they gave hospitality to the outlaw Deo Tolomei, also revolting against the Siennese, who installed his power in Sinalunga until 1330. Taken from Siena, the town was then entrusted to Galeazzo Visconti, in 1399. He undertook the largest fortification works, but of his stronghold no trace remains. In 1553 the Spanish imperial troops occupied the castle, giving it to the Medicis. In 1590, under request by Grand Duke Ferdinand I, the town’s imposing defences were brought down. The council only took on its current name in 1864, a few years after it became part of the Kingdom of Italy.

I am grandmother of three grandchildren and in my life I have always taken care of the family without ever neglecting my passions like the art and the history of my territory. Over the years I have contributed to the main attraction of Foiano, the Carnival. I have engaged in a private radio and currently with my husband we have fun singing in the choir of the parish. Lately, the love for art has led me to start, together with other friends, an association called "La Bottega dell'Arte", a school of painting aimed at both adults and children, who want to have the opportunity to express oneself through art.

PS: I forgot, I am also a voluntary guide and I collaborate with the Municipality of Foiano to make my territory known to all those who want it!

Sono nonna di tre nipoti e nella vita mi sono occupata sempre della famiglia senza trascurare mai le mie passioni come l'arte e la storia del mio territorio. Negli anni ho contribuito alla manifestazione principale di Foiano che è il Carnevale, mi sono impegnata in una radio privata e attualmente con mio marito ci divertiamo a cantare nel coro della parrocchia. Ultimamente l'amore per l'arte mi ha portata a fondare, insieme ad altri amici, un'associazione chiamata "La Bottega dell'Arte", scuola di pittura rivolta sia agli adulti che ai bambini ,che vogliono avere l'opportunità di esprimere se stessi attraverso l'arte.

PS: dimenticavo, sono anche una guida volontaria e collaboro con il Comune di Foiano per far conoscere il mio territorio a tutti quelli che lo vorranno!
