L'Orto di Olmo, a wood to discover
The house where Lawrence wrote Lady Chatterley's lover stands on a hill between Masciano and Casignano, in Scandicci. Behind it, a valley of vines and olive trees form the background of a path, in which the branches of the trees form an arch. And it is there that, after a stream, L ' Orto di Olmo is found . Alessandro, his keeper, is my guide. On the other hand, he does it by profession - he tells me - as an environmental guide. He decided to take care of this land in which there is now the forest, but fifty years ago it was an orchard with apple trees, pears and well-tended plants.For this, he began to decorate the path with installations made by him that follow a path, a story, full of characters and animals from a dreamlike and wild world.
