It’s enough to read some passages of the work; “… it is quite always isolated, surrounded by its own land… two kind of farmhouses are typical of Tuscany: one with external staircase that leads from the ground floor to a covered entrance, introducing into the kitchen, a very important room because it is where the whole family meets during the long winter evenings and eat… The other kind of farmhouse has internal staircase and kitchen on the ground floor. The first type predominates in the older buildings, especially if built in hilly areas, the second is more modern and trypical of flat areas.”</ span>
