Tree with Eyes
On the way to discovering Orsigna
A breathtaking itinerary on the Pistoia Mountains, near Pistoia, in the footsteps of journalist Tiziano Terzani

Surrounded by vast mountain landscapes and infinite sweeps of forests and high ground fields, this itinerary takes you to places that were once much loved by the journalist Tiziano Terzani, who originally came from the Valle dell’Orsigna: he was an intelligent and wise traveller who left us with his own rich and deeply spiritual heritage. 

He used to meditate right here in the small clearing where a large beech tree stands. On this tree he stuck two small ceramic eyes, as a homage to the mystical Indian tradition which attempts to draw the divine closer to the universe.
