In Assouline's impressive coffee table book "Tuscany Marvel," Cesare Cunaccia, a former editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia and Vogue L'Uomo, and consultant to Architectural Digest Italy, invites readers to explore his personal version of Tuscany. 

The Italian region of Tuscany is a delight for all the senses. It is a creative hotbed that has produced art and architecture for centuries, from the Etruscan and Roman periods to the Renaissance and modern times. Ancient churches, once part of nineteenth-century Grand Tours, still tower over the cities' piazzas. The rolling hills full of wheat and colorful olive groves that inspire authentic Tuscan cuisine are dotted with villas built by the prestigious Medici family. The Tyrrhenian Sea stretches along the coast, culminating in the island of Elba, where Emperor Napoleon once stayed in exile. Charming villages, historic towns and lively cities are scattered throughout the varied landscape, which is as diverse as the communities that inhabit it. From the annual horse races in Piazza del Campo and the centuries-old wine traditions of the Chianti region to the city of Pisa, an ancient maritime republic known for the youthful spirit of the Scuola Normale Superiore and its leaning tower, Tuscany is a dream place where thousands of people come to relive its history and enjoy the beauty of the region.

In the fashion world, Ferragamo, Gucci and Pucci all have ties to Florence and the endless inspiration the city offers. What truly defines Tuscany, however, is its timelessness. Masterpieces of the past continue to attract immense crowds. Brunelleschi's dome in Florence continues to amaze and inspire onlookers.
