    THE WONDERFUL #GIAGGIOLO (or #iris)!On the #Setteponti, in the direction of #Firenze, at this time of the year, you can admire the fields where #giggiolo is grown. Its cultivation began in Tuscany in the mid-1800s, reaching significant production quantities thanks to the demand from French and northern European companies for the use of iris powder in perfumery and distillery.The Tuscan product is highly sought after and competitive for the qualitative and quantitative characteristics of its components.The typical areas of cultivation are the two hilly and mountainous areas of the Arezzo #Pratomagno, crossed by the Setteponti, where I took this photo between #Reggello and #PiandiSco ', and the Florentine Chianti.The iris is a rustic plant grown on the edge of terraced fields, in land unsuitable for other crops.The iris is a crop that is an integral part of the Tuscan tradition and an agri-environmental resource extremely important for the local economy, therefore it requires protection for landscape, historical and cultural reasons.>> sites.google.com/view/setteponti <<
