The municipality of Pratovecchio Stia is located in the distinctive Casentino landscape; surrounded by evocative forests and places of worship, it’s the perfect scenery for those who love nature, mountains and hiking. Indeed, a visit to the Parco Nazionale delle Foreste Casentinesi, Monte Falterona e Campigna is just the ticket.
One of the many great things about Pratovecchio is that it’s the birthplace of Paolo di Dono, better known as Paolo Uccello, a wonderful Renaissance artist and master of perspective. The architecture in this small medieval village is a faithful mirror of its history: a history of faith, attested to by the presence of two convents in the town, one with Camaldolese nuns and the other with Dominicans. But it’s also a history of power, so clearly represented by the impressive Romena Castle, a fortress once owned by the Guidi Counts that was even cited by Dante in the 30th canto of his Divine Comedy.
