The region contains a wealth of small differences, and even more or less evident internai divisions. From the ba-sic point of view of climate, altitude and economy, there are in fact at least three Tuscanys the region of the Apen-nines the hilly areas which, from the rolling country of the ‘Lucchesia’ across the gentle hills of Chianti and the Val d'Elsa, extend as far as the Colline Metallifere and Monte Amiata and finally the coastal areas and the narrow river valleys wedged between hills and mountains. And this apart from the Tuscan islands, similar only in part to the coastal areas. But the region also changes a great deal from north to south. To the north of the Arno, where Tuscany starts to climb into the Apennines, which press it closer and closer to the sea as one goes northwards, approaching Lig-uria and Emilia, the characteristics of the region are attenuated, and we have what we might call a ‘less Tuscan Tuscany.’ From the southern bank of the great river, almost as far as the gates of Siena, we find what may be the most specific and characteristic nucleus of the region but to which, we repeat, the region itself cannot be entirely reduced, except at the price of unacceptable distortions.
