“I’m sick of all this beauty” is one of the opening lines of the film “Nostalghia” by the Russian director Andrej Tarkovskij and the beauty mentioned is in Tuscany, exactly in the Val d ‘Orcia, in Bagno Vignoni, where many sequences have been shot of the film. This village, known all over the world, owes its uniqueness and fame above all to a sixteenth-century pool of hot and steaming thermal spring waters which is located right in the center of the town, in the Piazza delle Sorgenti.
A scenography that has no equal and that changes with the seasons. At times it can become almost spooky, as if the houses surrounding the large tub were enveloped in a disturbing and mysterious mist, at times it becomes magical and surreal and the landscape seems to plunge and sink into a dream. Everything here has a fairytale flavor, like a suspended enchantment and the air itself seems saturated with an impalpable and mysterious fluid.
This magical place seduced Romana and Dino, two spouses who imagined their ceremony in Bagno Vignoni as if the fulfillment of their dream could not have a more adequate setting. The beauty of the village is complemented by the nearby Natural Park of the Mills where it is still possible to admire 4 medieval mills carved into the rock, functioning until 1800, which exploited the water coming out of the fountain, which flowed there through a steep escarpment. A place almost frozen in time to the point of seeming unreal and for this reason perhaps capable of enriching the background of the photos of the service with many suggestions.
If the climate lends a hand, the ceremony in Bagno Vignoni turns out to be a guessed and not obvious choice, which moreover for the indisputable landscape value of the Val d’Orcia offers a very rich choice of locations for receptions and parties. One of the most beautiful is certainly that of the Terre di Nano, a farmhouse built from a pre-existing nineteenth-century country residence which forms its central nucleus, not far from another fascinating village, Pienza. Celebrating your wedding at Terre di Nano is to prefer the quiet and relaxed atmosphere of one of the most fertile and luxuriant countryside in Tuscany, full of vineyards, olive groves and woods.
Being able to enjoy, from the raised hill on which the Villa is built, almost as if sprinkled on the hills, the enchanting medieval villages of Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino and Monticchiello and, on clearer days, Monte Amiata. It is an opportunity to rediscover the flavors of the past, genuine and uncontaminated, also through the tasting of the typical dishes of Tuscan cuisine and its famous wines, first of all the red of Montepulciano or Brunello di Montalcino, born in this very fabulous land.
An ancient tradition for a modern wedding, this could be the right slogan for a wedding in Bagno Vignoni
