Home-Studio is situated in Bagnaia, a few
kilometers far from Arezzo downtown, along the
old Cassia Way which, going across the
VALDICHIANA Valley, leads to Rome.
BAGNAIA is a place-name
clearly showing the presence of a thermal spa
during the Roman age, which it is still possible
to see the ruins of, being them now taken over
into the outside walls of a close villa.
In the medieval age, under
the influence of the powerful Benedictine Abbey
of St. Flora and Lucilla, a series of
blockhouses and sighting towers were built in
that same area. But when Arezzo city-state, in
order to oppose the political and economic power
of the Abbey, forced the monks to move into the
city walls, (1196), these structures lose their
strategic importance becoming rural buildings.
So, the “mansio” (stage)
of Bagnaia changed in a “farm worker’s house”.
After a lot of changes it
became part of the possessions of La VERNA
Franciscan Province, and then it was purchased
by Vittorio Angini who turned it into his own
Home-Studio, after a meticulous and thorough
book a visit at the ex
Franciscan pilgrim hospice and Vittorio’s Angini
