Figline Valdarno is a village 20 km south of Florence (Firenze). It is in the Arno valley between the hills of Chianti, one of the most famous wine production areas, and Pratomagno, a mountain range where the first Italian forest science school was born more than 150 years ago. The location is also close to the towns of Siena and Arezzo, both very famous for their artistic and historical heritages.
