Why Layla Gallo chose Saturnia

Welcome! My name is Carmine and with my family, we will be your hosts here at La Fornacina. I’m a Visual Designer who lives between Brooklyn, NYC, and Tuscany. I was raised at La Fornacina back in the 80’s, when this place operated with no electricity, running on nothing but dreams. Layla, my mom, your host as well, was the first visionary who found the estate in 1983 while travelling around Italy with my dad and me. She decided it was a special place, bought it, and moved our entire family from Naples, and our life in the city. Linda, my younger little sister, a creative and sweet person, was born here a couple of years after we moved here, and since that moment, La Fornacina has been our cosy shelter in the world. As good world travellers, we enrich it every time we return with our life experiences and beloved objects. We want others to enjoy La Fornacina’s comforts and idyllic setting. So close to Rome and Florence, yet a magical world away, our country house is yours to enjoy.

We like to think that people who come to our house feel the same way we did when we discovered such a special place.

Come by, and experience La Fornacina!

La Fornacina is situated on the hills of Saturnia, 6 miles from the Terme di Saturnia, in the heart of Maremma Tuscany.When you get to the fork at the entrance of Saturnia hamlet, turn right (the sign says Arcidosso-Semproniano), follow the road for about 1 mile and after some bends, turn left at the sign for Usi/Murci. Go straight on for 4 miles, find the signpost for "La Fornacina" and drive the last mile more to get to our house.

Equidistant between the most important cities of central Italy, La Fornacina has a favorable position coming from both south and north.

La Fornacina lies upon the hills of Saturnia Terme, between the Albegna and Fiora river valleys. It is in an area called Maremma, Toscana, halfway between Rome and Florence, in the province of Grosseto.

Although it is a small village, Saturnia has been world-famous for thousands of years. Thanks to its hot springs, it was inhabited since the dawn of civilization. According to ancient tales, it was the first town founded in the Italian peninsula during the Villanovan age (the earliest Bronze Age in central Italy, about 900 BC).

Saturnia is a part of the Comune di Manciano, administered by the Province of Grosseto. It is an area along the hills bordering River Albegna with a population of about 500 people, equidistant between the seaside and the mountains, as both the Argentario promontory and Monte Amiata are only a forty-minute drive away. There are several sites of remarkable historic, touristic and natural importance nearby. The wonderful and wild territory of Maremma extends from Mount Amiata to the shores of Argentario, in the extreme south of Tuscany, known as “Europe's Garden”. It is a land of butteri (cowboys from Maremma), rustic traditions and vast, open spaces.La Fornacina and Saturnia are right in the heart of Maremma. A pleasant drive through the country can lead you to Capalbio and the Giardino dei Tarocchi; the “Città del Tufo” (cities of tufa) Sovana, Pitigliano and Sorano; Mount Amiata and its surrounding villages; the area where the famous red wine “Morellino di Scansano” is produced; and the beaches of Argentario.
