Nestled high in the hills between the Chiana and Arno valleys, the tiny hamlet of Barbazzano was authentically restored to an exacting standard. Once home to about thirty contadini, or peasant farmers, Barbazzano was abandoned in 1969 and fell into disrepair. The restoration took six years using salvaged and reclaimed materials wherever possible. Click or scroll over the images to see a slideshow of the restoration process.
