Toscana Lovers a boutique where you find the best artisan products opens a new store in Bagno Vignoni, the most exclusive spa centre in Italia
It is in the heart of the most beautiful part of Tuscany, where one finds the only medieval spa centre that is still intact, in this minute hamlet near the war water pool where Santa Caterina and Lorenzo il Magnifico bathed: Bagno Vignoni. This is where Donatella Cinelli Colombini is opening her second store ”Toscana Lovers” dedicated to the best Tuscan handicraft. After the success of her other Siena shop, just round the corner from Piazza del Campo where the Palio race is run, now a second boutique for handmade Tuscan objects.
Her you find knives from Scarperia, the sharp blades famous since the 8th century and made by the master knife make. The Virginia pottery, with its shabby chic style and where every day utensils are reinvented. Then the chopping boards and the tureens made in olive wood loved by northern tourists where these trees can’t grow. Soap bars decorated with bronze stamps and perfuse with natural essences from Tuscany such as the iris, symbol of Florence. Scarves by Cecchi & Cecchi and many objects in resin that trap for ever leaves and flowers. Of course wines too – Brunello, Chianti and Orcia- from the family estates Casato Prime Donne in Montalcino and Fattoria del Colle in Trequanda.
