Renato Fucini

This famous Italian writer was born in Via Roma in Monterotondo Marittimo in 1843.

To celebrate him and his work, the city’s council, the University of Siena and the Pro Loco di Monterotondo Marittimo hold a biennial literary award, which is now recognised on a national level.

Visitors interested in Fucini can still have a poke around his house in Via Roma. There’s a plaque there commemorating him, so you can’t miss it!
