If to the north the Mugello crosses the Apennines into Romagna, to the south it shades off into the lower Val di Sieve. Here it meets the mid valley of the Arno Medio Valdarno at Pontassieve, which stands at the meeting of the waters. Pontassieve is in fact a key point. The Arno, which begins life by flowing south, having rounded the massif of the Pratomagno turns sharply north, and makes a broad curve just before Pontassieve. Here it collects the tributary waters from the Mugello, and heads westward past Empoli to Pisa and the sea. From Pontassieve we can cross the wooded bulk of the Pratomagno by way of the Passo della Consuma and thereby reach the Casentino. This is the upper volley of the Arno, marked at its northernmost limits by the mountains of Falterona and Fumaiolo, the sources respectively of the Arno and the Tiber. Immediately to the east of the Casentino we come to the Val Tiberina, which borders on Umbria, as in fact does the Valdichiana, the neighbouring basin of the river Chiana. But let us return to the Arno and look at the area to the south of its left bank.
