Talla is a town and comune in the province of Arezzo, Tuscany.
Talla’s vast territory stretches through forests of the innermost zone of Pratomagno. The area’s oldest and perhaps most charming town (with medieval origins) is known as “la Castellaccia,” marked by a picturesque church and a series of small homes tightly set against one another.
The etymology of Talla, however, dates much farther back: Tallulah, a noble Etruscan name, perhaps derived from the deity to whom this specific area was dedicated. The presence of the Etruscans is also noted in the valley entranceway leading to the village: you’ll see a large votive altar, which was found directly behind the apse of the Parish Church of Socana.
Following the area’s oral traditions, Guido Monaco, a reformer of musical notation, was supposedly born in Talla. It’s no coincidence that here you can visit the Museum of Music “Guido d’Arezzo” dedicated to the famed musician. Check out other small hamlets such as Pontenano and Faltona, peaceful oases that offer wonderful excursions, especially in the summertime.
A great time to visit Talla is during its food and wine events featuring the festival of cacio cheese and fava beans held every year in the first days of May.
