Andrea Bocelli is a world renowned tenor and Lajatico is his hometown. Every year in July he hosts an important international festival at his ‘Teatro del Silenzio’, his specially created open air amphitheater. During this week music lovers come from all over the world to listen to the wonderful performances of Bocelli, and other important international artists. Bocelli is often seen in the square or at his restaurant where he samples, and encourages others to sample, the local specialties of his expert chefs.
The town of Lajatico is located in the Valdera region of Central Tuscany, between Pisa and Florence. This colourful landscape of rolling hills is dotted with medieval villages, castles and lanes flanked with tall dark green cypress trees which epitomise the Tuscan landscape. The area is scattered with historical towns and medieval villages, castles and country churches and a landscape with golden meadows of wheat dancing in the breeze, vineyards, olive groves and fields of sunflowers. Meandering through the countryside of Valdera you feel the vestiges of the mysterious Etruscan civilization.
