About Francesco Ruatti
I love my Tuscany and all its old and new traditions, I love the country life and all that surrounds it: The discovery of old farmhouses, breathtaking landscapes and hidden places. In this case I was lucky enough to buy and renovate these houses with love and professionalism, respecting the architectural systems of the past and adopting strictly original material at that time. I believe that my sacrifices I have been well rewarded since they are very happy with the final result. I had the good fortune to live in a small village in this part of the land among the most popular and visited places in the world. At school I had as a companion Andrea Bocelli, it's right! the current Maestro Andrea Bocelli, at that time he lived with his parents too, in a small village (Lajatico) a few miles from me, where he still performs regularly every year in the beautiful scenery of hills which is (The Theatre of silence), I forgot, a few days ago, how could it happen to you I met him riding his horse, he stopped for a drink at the bar of the country. In Tuscany this can happen and more!
Francesco Ruatti purchased this Farmhouse in 1989
