Unfortunately the tower was pretty much destroyed by the 2009 earthquake but it is being painstakingly rebuilt and the information around the site is very interesting and informative.

A little town in the mountains well worth a visit. Suffered from the 2009 earthquake and it is a reminder that things in Italy don't move very fast. The "tower" is a feature of scaffolding. Little shops feature artisan products-wool, honey.

As with the village, the Torre is a beautiful medieval building, well worth visiting. Also look around the other buildings.

Little remains of this important Medici tower. There is a mass of scaffolding around the ruin and perhaps one day it will be restored
