Between Lucca and Pistoia the horizon is without any out standing features until we get to Monte Albano and the middle Arno volley. This was a vast marshy area until it was reclaimed in the 1 8th cent, by order of Grand Duke Pietro Leopoldo. From it emerge only the ‘islands’ formed by small hills such as that of Montecatini Alto. Further north the landscape once more becomes rugged, with the mountains towering above Pistoia Montagna Pistoiese which act as the watershed between this territory and that of Bologna. Travelling eastwards, after the narrow Val di Bisenzio’, we enter the volley of the Sieve and its tributaries, corresponding to the historical area of the Mugello. From here, once we cross the Futa Pass, 930 metres up in the Apennines, we leave the geographical but not the historical area of Tuscany. We have in fact arrived in ‘Tosco Romagna,’ occupying the upper basins of the Santerno, the Senio and the Lamone, with their chief cen tres at Firenzuola, Palazzuolo sul Senio and Marradi.
