Massa Marittima si trova al centro delle Colline Metallifere, nell’alta Maremma, colline che occupano una vasta porzione di territorio della Toscana e che degradano dolcemente fino a lambire la costa tirrenica del Golfo di Follonica.

Text Appearing Before Image:

on the road after Roccatederighilies Roccastrada, and because of itsname and its striking situation, as wellas because it divided the day conve-niently, we climbed to its piazza for amidday meal which one may find at theStella dltalia.

Whetheror not they were thorough in their work, time has secondedit, for there is now no trace of wall or tower nor of anyother survival of ancient architecture. I was pondering on the austerity of it all, the absence ofany softening element, when a ray of sunshine put me inthe wrong; it suddenly visited something near by which Ihad not noticed and lighted it with loveUness. It was ahead of wavy copper-colored hair I have seldom seenequalled, and it belonged to a smiling girl who hospitablyinvited me to follow her to her abode
