Cortona and the mysteries of the Etruscans… under the Tuscan Sun!

Discover with Le Ceregne Farmhouse Tour one of the best cities in Tuscany: Cortona, between Valtiberina and Valdichiana, just under the Tuscan Sun!

A film and a book in Cortona: Under the Tuscan Sun

“Under the Tuscan Sun” is a 2003 film American romantic comedy drama film written, produced, and directed by Audrey Cortona (2)Wells and starring Diane Lane. Based on Frances Mayes‘ 1996 memoir Under the Tuscan Sun, the film is about a recently-divorced writer who buys a villa in Tuscany on a whim, hoping it will lead to a change in her life. The film was nominated for the Art Directors Guild Excellence in Production Design Award, and for her performance in the film, Diane Lane received a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actress.
Despite being well known for movies like “Under the Tuscan Sun” and “Life is beautiful” by Roberto Benigni, Cortona keeps its original lifestyle and quietness, which match perfectly our idea of slow living and slow travelling.
