Greve and Pesa… two valleys united by a grand heritage of culture and beautiful landscapes. From the Badia a Passignano to San Cresci, Monteﬁoralle and Panzano, the cultural path has been marked and enhanced by 1000 years of travel, events and activities tied to the rural and religious world of one of the oldest areas of the Chianti region.
Uniting the territories, making them pieces of a unique mosaic of tourist/promotional potential, we can thank history and these new cultural projects to the Union of Towns of the Florentine Chianti region.
The origins of the 1000 year old abbey of the Badia a Passignano extend along the road that from Badia leads to Greve, passing through San Cresci, Monteﬁoralle and Panzano in Chianti, all architectural testimonies to the prestige of the territory.
From this was born the idea, still in is ﬁrst phase, between the mayors of Greve and Tavarnelle, Paolo Sottani and David Baroncelli, to propose a new form of collaboration for the development of the cultural and naturalistic resources present in these area.
This is also thanks to the recent entrance of Greve into the Union. The project aims to reenact an ancient relationship between the organization of musical events in the parishes, initiatives of cultural valorization, the promotion of the territory and the rebirth of the wine/cuisine tradition.
There is also the wish to extend the protected area of Badia to the area of Greve for the creation of a single park, all to be done in the spirit of an open and united territory.
