In 2001 the ‘Memoria Ecclesiae’ research centre and the ‘Progetto Galgano’ association joined forces to define a rich series of events organized against the backdrop of the rotunda of Montesiepi and the legendary suggestions of the hagiographic ‘case’ of St Galgano. This book emerged from the conference that closed the cycle, offering an important look at the history of the region gleaned through the places and episodes in which the hermitic-knightly Tuscan epic, at once historical and literary, unfolded in the heart of the Middle Ages.
