Vulci ed i misteri di Mitra, Culti orientali in Etruria
Jul31

The Exhibit dedicated to the eastern cults in Etruria right in the Orsini Fortress of Sorano!

It may sound strange talking about Vulci, ancient etruscan city in the northern Lazio, inside the blog of Hotel della Fortezza, you will make up your mind! Actually, there are many reasons for the territory of the Hilltop Towns is essentially linked to Vulci and with the ancient eastern rituals that characterized Etruria. First of all, the direct relationship that connect, since the etruscan time, the cost and the hinterland.

Vulci, one of the biggest etruscan city-state in Etruria, just few kilometers from Canino and Montalto di Castro, was the commercial center of that time, famous in all over the ancient world for its handcraft, agriculture and the maritime trades, derived from its position near the cost.

The hinterlands of the Southern Tuscany, like the area of the Hilltop Towns, Sorano, Pitigliano and Sovana, hidden among hills and valleys, were, on the contrary, proper gardens, sacred and mystical places where they proclaim the worship of the mother heart. Their belief was expressed through the building of still admirable impressive works, called the Vie Cave (literally carved roads, carved into the tufa stone cliffs spread all over the necropolis of this territory).

These two different etruscan realities that distinguished themselves for morphology and customs, were already related one to the other by continuous exchanges and interests.

Today, thanks to the synergy and collaboration between the Museums of the municipality of Sorano with the Museum of Vulci and superintendence of the Southern Etruria, this linking has been brought to life again through the exhibit dedicated to the mysteries of the Mitreo of Vulci, that will be open until the end of November in the Museum of the Renaissance and the Middle-Ages of the Orsini Family. In fact, it will possible to admire the statue of the Mitra divinity in the act of killing the bull.

The Cult in honor of Mitra

The ritual in honor of Mitra, the figure that was identified with the light and the solar cycle of Helios, was spread after the contrast between Asia Minor and the greek world, at the end of the IV century after the Persian empire. This cult arrived in Italy from the I century a.D. and was spread firstly among the military legions, with the ritual of the sacrifice of the bull, that represented the death and the rebirth, the prolificness, and the victory of the good against the evil. The self-liberation of the followers could be reached by the practice of collective rituals that took place in specific rooms where the sacred banquet was consumed, in a similar way then the rituals in honor of Dioniso-Bacco. The mysterious cults derived from the presence of seven different levels of initiation of the followers that were practiced while dancing and drinking wine.

The statue

The ritual in honor of Mitra was identified with the rebirth and the victory of the good against the evil. In fact the statue dedicated to Mitra, which you will have the possibility to admire the original version right in the exhibit in the museum of the Renaissance and the Middle-Ages of Sorano, represents the god who grabs the bull, bringing its head close by him, and hitting it with his sword. In the scene, a snake and a dog seem to be drinking from the wound of the poor animal, since from its death is the life rebirths; On the other hand a scorpion attacks the bull from below, trying to hurt its testicles.

For more informations and details, you can take advantage of the guide titled Vulci and the mysteries of Mitra, that you can find on sale in the museum of Piazza Cairoli, that will be useful to deepen your knowledge about Vulci, the cult of Mitra, the reason of its presence in Etruria and the other motifs that are encouraging the municipality of Montalto and Canino to point on the organization of the archaeological park of Vulci and its Uniqueness!

tuscan pecorino
Apr24

Today we’ll showcase one of Southern Tuscany’s best products… Tuscan Pecorino!!

A gastronomical delicacy the Tuscan Pecorino, (PDO, Protected Designation of Origin) is the result of a delicate balance of natural features (climate and environmental characteristics) and human features (production method and artisanal know-how) that blend to create a product which is inimitable outside of the area of origin.  Also called ‘cacio’ in Southern Tuscany, it has ancient origins which date back to the Etruscan era. With the creation of the first cheese factories, it emerged the definitive separation between the figure of the shepherd and that of the cheese maker, who well and truly became an cheese artisan. It’s a cheese that’s also known with its ancient name, ‘cacio marzolino’, which comes from the period of production that started in the month of March and continued throughout the Spring period.

The characteristics of the PDO Tuscan Pecorino derive from both the environmental conditions in which the sheep are bred and also the productive processes aided by the most advanced technologies, that nonetheless respect a centuries-old tradition, allowing for the production of a top-quality cheese.

The fundamental ingredient is obviously milk, exclusively sheep milk, that comes from herds raised on the territory marked by the Denomination of Protected Origins. It has a cylindrical shape and its consistency is dense with a straw-yellow color of varying intensity. Its flavor is fragrant and at times accentuated, a characteristic of this particular production method. Depending on the area of production the aging process changes and with this, the flavor and the use of the cheese also change a lot too. In fact, they range from a fresh Tuscan Pecorino, which has a delicate and sweet flavor, to a more seasoned Pecorino, with an intense and more accentuated flavor and finally to a Pecorino with a very long aging process, making it hard and with a strong flavor that is traditionally served with the sweet flavor of honey or jam…

During your stay at Hotel della Fortezza, you will have the chance to taste Tuscan Pecorino in different occasions, such as in the buffet of your breakfast or choosing our Aperitif with Local Products. We underline the importance of using local products, in order to let our guests discover our rich territory starting from the local gastronomy. Our Aperitifs include a mix of Tuscan Pecorinos with different aging processes, fresh, aged, or blue cheeses and Cinta-Senese cured meats.. All accompanied with a glass of white or red wine from the best local cellars!

Let you be tempted by the irresistible tastes of Southern Tuscany… we look forward to welcoming you!

 

tuscan wines
Apr18

An organic excellence amongst the southern tuscan wines ..

This enterprise is the fruit of a love and passion for the territory, for the tuscan wines and in particular for this strip of land in the Southern Tuscan hills. 24 years ago Carla and Edoardo, a couple both in work and personal life, decided to make a change after a lifetime in the chaos and monotony of city life. Thus, they embraced nature by moving to Southern Tuscany. Carla, who is an agronomist from Trento, had always wished to live in the countryside; Edoardo, a documentary maker from Rome, has always been fascinated by the realm of winemaking. Thanks to their dreams they were able to set up the vineyard of Sassotondo, that today is amongst the best in the area of the hilltop towns.

72 hectares that lie on the border between the municipalities of Sorano and Pitigliano, which include woodland and pastures; 10 of them produce their elegant, flavoursome and aromatic wines, the expression of this powerful and mysterious territory of Southern Tu
scany. According to the organic agriculture, the vineyard produces two
DOC (guarantee of origin) wines, the Pitigliano White and the Sorano Red. 8 hectares are dedicated to red grapes (principally Ciliegiolo, San Giovese and Merlot) and 2 for white grapes (Trebbiano, Greco, Sauvignon) with tuff-stone being the characterizing element of this territory and its wine production. Their real strengths are the IGT (Protected Geographical Indication) wines which hold all of their intuitions, culture and passion for this land and for the tuscan wines.

What about the origin of this name?

Sassotondo..a peculiar name whose origin are to track down in the nature of this land, a volcanic land. Nowadays Monte Amiata is the most famous ski station of the whole Southern Tuscany, but it was previously a volcano whose eruptions, once cooled and stratified, originated the stone that distinguishes this area.. the Tuff! HIMG_3884ouses, streets and foundation of the villages spread from Monte Amiata to the coast are made of tuff, that characterizes not only the aspect of Southern Tuscany, but also the flavors of the products of this land, that, as Carla will proudly explain, for this reason are unique worldwide!

The real round stone (“Sasso-tondo”) is a tufa stone that had been found by chance in the fields of the company, after a long process of smoothing and sculpting made by the weather. The two wine-producers make it the emblem of their love for this land, giving it the place of honour in the centre of their label, in which we can notice also the vineyards and the mountains in the distance that surround the sphere.

Also the cellar is carved into the tufa stone! A thirty-meters-long cave that ends in the room called “bottaio”, where the barrels containing wine have always the optimal temperature and humidity thanks to the material of the walls.. a suggestive tunnel that you can travel following Carla, Edoardo or who will accompany you to the discover of the wine-producing system that give shape to the wines of Sassotondo, getting lost in the passionate narrations and descriptions of who will answer to all your questions.

We have chosen for you the wine-producing company Sassotondo for a two-hours wine-and-food tour to discover the flavors of Southern Tuscany, because it emerges as representative of the excellences of products in this region. Once arrived at Sassotondo, the owners themselves will welcome you warmly, and your tour will start in a friendly and informal atmosphere. Starting from the vineyards, you will eventually visit the wine-producing systems, hidden in the tufa stone under the fields. The tuff makes the cellar more suggestive, but also constantly cool and humid. At the end of the tour of the machines you will taste the finished product. Three wines, tasted in the cozy terrace directly with the owners, listening to their description about the iter they have passed before being uncorked for your wine-tasting. Uncorked, obviously, like as the rules of the good sommelier impose… Get lost observing the careful motions of who will open the bottles, pouring the wine in the glass in the best way to exalt its unique taste and flavor. Your visit will last two hours, after which, you will have the chance to buy the products that most captured your attention!

We were a little bit uncertain about the result of this experiment, because the taste and the color of this new rough flour could have turned out to be too different that the previously one or could have not meet the expectation of the guests who would have expected the classic dough.. However we had to change our mind! The experiment yielded only positive feedback, every guest congratulated with us for Daniela’s culinary skills!

hot springs of southern tuscany

The benefits of the thermal water, in the wild nature of Southern Tuscany

We can notice as a new category of tourism has been spreading next to the one interested to the hundreds of century of history admirable in the territory of Southern Tuscany and obviously to the wine and food. This new category is turned to eliminate, or reduce, the psycho-physic problems thanks to the use of thermal waters! This is not a modern trend, but a millennial habit : Greeks, Romans and Etruscans have left their testimony celebrating the virtues of the waters of the hot springs of Southern Tuscany.

Today the hot springs have gained great consideration because of the discover of the real benefits earned by the immersion in this kind of water, and especially, because of the chaotic life we lead, that requires us to dedicate part of our time to the personal care. There is no better way to relax than a stay in the wild and natural environment of the Hilltop Towns, where you can reach the many hot springs of Southern Tuscany with a brief transfer.. In order to increase this kind of tourism, in the last years the thermal centers have evolved, establishing real SPAs able to offer services and specific therapies focused to the complete wellbeing of the guests.

Tuscany, especially the southern part, boasts a great tradition for which concerns wellbeing and hot springs; some of the most important nucleus as Bagno Vignoni and San Casciano have a very long history, but many other thermal stations have raised throughout the years, contributing to make Tuscany one of the most equipped under this point of view. Saturnia, Sorano, Bagni San Filippo, just to mention few of them, are really cherished by people who love this kind of wellness-holiday.

Hot springs of Southern Tuscany boast an additional key factor than the other Italian thermal centers. In fact these SPAs are immersed in natural and fascinating environments, surrounded by the green valleys and woods…ideal places for the complete relaxation!

Water as a therapy

Immersing in this water or getting dirty with the mud for example by playing with it, make us regress, and according to a fascinating symbolism studied by the psycho-analysis, it seems to be a mechanism that allow us to become young again, back in the time when mother used to take care of us. This “return to the pureness”, but especially the healing and protective connection inside the pools, can be seen as a complex relation between I and Subconscious. We can speak about a research of the soul, of our origin and our identity, that bring men to discover the water as a mean to solve some diseases in a natural way.

The waters of the hot springs of Southern Tuscany are used for many organic pathologies, in relation to their chemical composition. We can think about waters that contain arsenic and iron, that suit particularly for depression, while waters with bromine or carbon, and radio-active waters, can help anxious people.

We can assume that therapeutic waters (often synonymous of thermal waters) have characteristics able to carry out a sort of “pharmacologic activity” that prevents, and rehabilitates, physical and psychological diseases.

Waters are not all equal, and they do not solve the same problems:

  • The action of sulfurous waters, like that of Saturnia, is mainly dermatological, in fact they fight acne and dermatitis
  • Waters with arsenic is the best for the dry pathologies of the skin, like psoriasis
  • On the other hand, waters with carbon allow a specific action pointed to the circulatory system.

prodotti biologici toscani
Feb06

Today we’ll be speaking about top quality tuscan organic products!

A tuscan organic products are guaranteed because it’s certified according to the CEE regulations that guarantee the method of production. In fact, the products that come from this particular form of agriculture are produced without the use of any chemical substance and in complete respect of the environment.  Organic products are spreading more and more in Southern Tuscany, because this is a territory full of agricultural enterprises built on the organic model that use the natural fertility of the land and promote biodiversity. Thus many cultivators have adopted techniques that respect the natural ecological equilibrium by not using harmful substances like fertilizers and pesticides. The purpose of these practices is to produce food, wine and many other products without toxic residue and full of nutritional value.  These are the reasons why an organic product guarantees quality and authenticity, indispensable prerogatives of a well-balanced, complete and healthy diet. Southern Tuscany can boast of a vast array of organic products, from fruit and vegetables to its renowned meat.

In recent years, there has been a mass return to our origins, particularly with the desire to use products from one’s own land. However, we’ll start from the premise that the identification of organic products derives from specific labeling procedures that offer the consumer the greatest guarantees possible of these products’ origins, preparation, transformation and packaging.. there is a real tradition based on the production of southern tuscan organic products!

There is an ever increasing request for healthy and natural products and therefore also, or above all, organic products. And thus we introduce you tuscan organic products that arise from the continuous search for products of high quality, all obtained from organic ingredients. There is no chemical treatment of the trees and their fruit, no impact on the earth and only natural products. All this translated into good health for those who buy organic!
