Asciano is a historic village immersed in the famous Crete Senesi. It’s been inhabited since ancient times, as evidenced by the discovery of an Etruscan necropolis. A large mosaic floor fragment from the 4th century AD, held in the heart of the historic center, remains as a testament to the Roman times.
The first medieval record of Asciano dates back to the beginning of the 8th century and refers to the dispute between the bishops of Siena and Arezzo about the possession of some churches, including the Parish Church of Asciano. Owned by the Tolomei lordship during the 13th century, the town returned to direct Sienese control from the mid-14th century until 1554 when, alongside Siena, the Medici family took control.
In Asciano’s typical countryside, you can find the splendid monastery complex and artistic treasure trove of the Abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore, right in the heart of the Crete Senesi at only a few kilometres from the village. The abbey was founded at the beginning of the 14th century by the Blessed Bernardo Tolomei, a Sienese nobleman who had decided to leave his luxurious and wealthy life behind in order to dedicate himself to a life of simplicity and solitude. The abbey was not only an important religious centre, but also vital in terms of culture and economy, becoming particularly indispensable during the Renaissance.
The famous Via Lauretana, a historic Etruscan-Roman road that connects Cortona to Montepulciano and Siena, also passes through Asciano.
