    They remember, with due proportions, the most famous American canyons, but if you come from these parts, these too have their particular charm. The Balze del Valdarno, also known as Smotte, are a characteristic geotope, consisting of sands, clays and stratified gravels, up to a hundred meters high, of diversified shapes, interspersed with deep gorges. These are the result of the erosion of the lake's Pliocene sediments of the Upper Valdarno by atmospheric agents and rivers because the Valdarno was a lake.
    In addition to my photo, in order to give an idea of what I am, I am attaching one of Marco Faccioli.
