Anghiari has been linked for decades to the art of restoration and woodworking. In the shops of the historical center the skilled hands of the craftsmen bring to life unique works of art. There are hundreds of stories hidden in the drawers that the woodworkers and antique dealers of Anghiari could tell. They could tell their personal story or old ones that sometimes appear from hidden drawers, old chests or locked wardrobes.
This Memory Route path is recommended for those travellers ready to welcome storytelling related to craftsmanship in Tuscany.
