Tuscany is a region in Italy that includes the city of Florence, its capital. About 3.6 million people live in this region, which is acknowledged as the birthplace of the Renaissance movement.
Tuscany is also the birthplace of some very artistic people, such as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Galileo, and Botticelli, and its many museums house a rich artistic heritage of architecture, painting, and sculpture. Tuscany's Chianti vineyards, peaceful countryside, colorful landscapes, natural beauty, and diverse architecture draw many visitors from around the world. In fact, Tuscany tourism is a year-round industry -- especially in the wake of the film "Under the Tuscan Sun," which brought yet another touch of romance to this ancient region along the eastern Italian coast. At barewalls.com you'll find a nice selection of Tuscan posters, including several by Alan Blaustein, Max Hayslette, and Philip Craig.
