"Prato is a fantastic ancient and solid town, the quintessential little Tuscan town center, with all those streets that are also in the old Florence ... All afternoon I wandered the streets and squares, I chatted with women and children, peeked inside delightful gardens and old courtyards, and I found the most genuine Italian life I have seen so far." Hermann Hesse, (From Italy, Saturday the 20th of April 1901)

Prato is no longer the small Tuscan provincial town that impressed so much Hermann Hesse; today is the second largest city in Tuscany, but its impressive growth has not prevented it from preserving and enriching its masterpieces and increasing its ingenuity that is always been the basis of its fortune. Prato is at the center of a territory rich in history and beautiful works of art, a territory that surprises and enchants those who meet it for the first time.
