50 PARISH CHURCHES AND ABBEYS IN THE UPPER VALDARNO
ART, HISTORY AND RELIGION
This publication aims to highlight the wealth of the heritage present in the Valdarno area. The Valdarno Superiore Section of the Italian Alpine Club and the Valdarnese del Poggio Academy have edited this volume in which there are fifty parish churches, churches and abbeys, photographed for the occasion by the members of the Section. Of each church there is a historical-artistic card, with external images of the churches and the masterpieces contained in them. In short, the architectural face and the distribution in the territory of the churches of the Valdarno are eloquent testimonies of the history of the valley between Antiquity to the modern age. We are faced with a selection, a reasoned choice: but at the same time the gallery of works of art in this volume wants to be an attempt to remove and transfer the historical identity of a territory.
