Pietrasanta is known as the “little Athens” of the Versilia region thanks to the high concentration of artists that decided to put down roots there. The town has a long standing tradition of expert marble workers, and the surrounding Apuan Alps remind us of this tradition. Visitors breathe the Michelangelo-esque air in the workshops of the town, including the Studio Cervietti on via Sant’Agostino, where you will likely encounter artists like Botero and Mitoraj. The historic center is elegant and visitors can find art galleries, fashionable boutiques and prestigious enotecas. Located just a few kilometres away is the Marina of Pietrasanta on the Versilia coastline. For more information on Pietrasanta please click on the following link. Don’t miss a thing!
