Some Tuscan Artists - Past and Present
Gino Severini (right), a member of the Futurist movement, was born in Cortona to a poor family. Educated at the local Scuola Tecnica until the age of 15, his interest in art developed later while living in Rome with his mother. He attended an annexe of the Rome Fine Art Institute and later worked with the painter Umberto Boccioni before moving and settling in Paris in 1906. Severini said later that he felt most at home in Cortona and although he died in Paris in 1966 aged 82, was buried in Cortona where his work can now be seen. 

Traveller looks back at the rich art history of Tuscany and also discovers its post-modern and living local artists, including Roberto Borgni (right), whose raku work has been inspired by TS Eliot's words "...in the room the women come and go talking of Michelangelo".

Tuscany is the most famous of Italy's 20 regions, the western edge is coastline, but the north, east and south border five other regions: Liguria, Emilia Romagna, Le Marche, Umbria and Lazio. Celebrated for its wealth of art, illustrious history (Etruscan and Roman) and richly evocative landscape, Tuscany is a place where the past and present fuse into a delicate harmony. Whichever part of the region you choose to explore, you will find an ancient land every bit as captivating as its reputation promises, your only problem is deciding what to leave out. Tuscany Traveller gets behind the tourist exterior and finds the real Tuscany, focusing on local arts and cultural hidden treasures.
