Postcards from Tuscany
Pitigliano Panorama
Pitigliano, an Etruscan settlement, is spectacularly situated high above the cave cliffs of the Lente valley. In 1293, the Orsini family moved its base from Sovana to Pitigliano, built up the town's defenses and fortified their home. The Palazzo Orsini has its water supply brought in by an impressive aqueduct, built below the fortress in 1545.
