What I have become I owe it to Milan but what I am, what is my character, I owe it to Fucecchio.
With these words, repeated several times, Indro Montanelli (1909-2001) expresses the deep connection with his hometown, a root that was the basis of his personality, of the frankness with which he led his battles, of his own writing, dry and incisive. He once confessed, "Perhaps in my life I have always looked for Fucecchio", a place that had remained in his heart, despite his success and his countless journeys to all continents. To paraphrase the words of the great journalist, this itinerary invites you to look for Montanelli right in his beloved Fucecchio.
