“....only those belonging to systems with a strong integration emerge, those capable of enhancing multidimensionality in their relationships with their neighbour, with work, with society are the most suitable to survive.”
From this conviction comes the desire to create a group that bases its strength on union, precisely in Tuscany, in the region of districts, villages and cities in a constant struggle with each other. A small but complex area that despite the proverbial conflicts, has generated a rich series of wonders, geniuses, illustrious characters, artists, unique cities, food, wine, habits and customs that change even from town to town and that have conquered the world. Writers, directors, artists, journalists, entrepreneurs from every nation have been captured by the magic of our beautiful region.
Ring of Estates was born with the aim of making its own contribution, making known a small part of the riches generated by so much diversity, magically united as in a mosaic in which every single piece, of different size and color, contributes to the wonder of the work as a whole.
