We are in the beautiful Val d'Orcia in Tuscany near Pienza in the province of Siena in early spring. On top of a hill is this 16th century farmhouse with its cypress trees that are a symbol of this region. At sunset after a spring rainstorm the sun's rays filter through the still dark clouds and caress the Crete Senesi with the still ripening green wheat. With this shot I wanted to represent my region, Tuscany, in its entirety.

Alberto Fornasari, professional photographer, was born in Arezzo in 1973. It's really Tuscany with its traditions and its beautiful scenery to inspire and define more closely the poetry of his photographic journey. Since 1994 he has dedicated himself to telling the story of the Val d'Orcia and the Crete Senesi through images in all seasons of the year, taking advantage of the light of dawn. He made his first landscape photographic exhibition in 1997 and in 2000 received his first award in the competition Italian Institute of Landscape Photography.
