The project and the exhibition

With the passion and energy typical of young people the project One Hundred Itineraries Plus One, promoted by the Ente Cassa di Risparmio of Florence in collaboration with the schools, local authorities and the Regione Toscana, reaches out to those who care about their territory and are willing to learn about new ones. Aimed at the students from the Casentino schools and its young inhabitants, the initiative gives shape, following a mutually enriching exchange, to an exhibition in the Castle of the Guidi Counts in Poppi which has as its unifying theme the wealth of art, culture and tradition of the Casentino, interesting for any kind of visitor. Through diversified languages and tools (short films, interviews, real-life stories, explanatory panels) young people undertook the creation of a personal view of their territory centred on its rediscovery and on the many cultural resources found there. You will be surprised to see places you know which will appear new and unusual from the different perspective used to look at them. For those who do not or only partly know the Casentino, it is a unique occasion to understand its essence and enjoy its beauty with a series of pleasant and interesting initiatives (bus tours, free guided visits, publications, etc.) as well as to visit the Castle of the Guidi Counts, a stately medieval fortress with one of the most beautiful views of the Casentino.


This is the seventh One Hundred Itineraries Plus One, and, after having touched on the whole Province of Florence and the Val di Chiana area in the Province of Arezzo, this year it comes to the Casentino. The project revolves around the Municipalities of Bibbiena, Capolona, Castel Focognano, Castel San Niccolò, Chitignano, Chiusi della Verna, Montemignaio, Ortignano Raggiolo, Pratovecchio, Poppi, Stia, Subbiano and Talla. The exhibition set up in the Castle of the Guidi Counts in Poppi offers an opportunity to rediscover these places, together with other interesting initiatives.
