where ancient, verdant woodlands strewn with flint, stone and bronze axes bear witness to the first step taken by man; where the crumbling arches of a bridge recall the power of Rome; the castles the memory of feudal might, the “pieve” or parish churches the religious influence, in the
"grancie" the presence of the Hospitallers and everywhere the power of nature and the elements from the windblown treetops, to the pelting rain which overwhelms a village ...... ."
