Photo and description
Alberese is a rural settlement in southern Tuscany, district of the commune of Grosseto. It is located 20 km southwest of Grosseto itself, in the center of the Maremma Natural Park. It is reliably known that even in the prehistoric period, some local caves were inhabited by people. In one of them - Scogletto - artifacts of the Bronze Age and the era of Ancient Rome have been preserved. And in the town of Talamone, you can find traces of the Etruscan and Roman periods.
The area of modern Alberese, dominated by the imposing Villa Grandukale, has developed over the past two centuries, thanks to the adoption of a law on free ownership and distribution of agricultural land to peasants arriving from Veneto and Northern Italy.
Despite the presence of a person, the surrounding wilderness with its hunting grounds and extensive flower meadows has been preserved. Today it is protected by the Maremma Natural Park and a number of local laws. Herds of wild horses and cows still roam the local fields and meadows, and deer and bears live in the dense forests of the Monti Uccellini mountains. Each season of the year in Alberese has its own charm and color: ocher in autumn and winter, green in spring and yellow in summer. In summer, dandelion fields are interspersed with wheat fields, and on a sunny day it's easy to witness the optical phenomenon of Fata Morgana.
Of the sights of Alberese, it is worth noting the aforementioned Villa Granducale, the churches of Sant Antonio Abate and Santa Maria, the Abbey of San Rabano, the Uccellina hermitage, the Uccellina towers, Castel Marino and Collelungo and the archaeological zone of Scogletto.
