about the garfagnana
The Garfagnana is the area north of the Province of Lucca on the border with three provinces: Massa-Carrara, Reggio Emilia and Modena.
This position outpost of Tuscany Region toward the Emilia gives it a connotation of “hinge area” of considerable strategic as a point of contact between the different territorial and administrative with their cultural traditions, resources and historical background.

Our houses are born around the beginning of '900, the parents of his grandfather Clemente, known locally as Clemè, built the house against the mountain Calamaia, receiving, among others scorn of many in the country. The area was known as “the huts” because there were stables for the shelter animals, remittances for agricultural tools and warehouses for the storage of food products such as flour, beans, sausages etc.
After the earthquake of 1920, which our homes survived unscathed, thanks precisely to their being close to Mount Calamaia, the stables were converted into dwellings in the land behind creating terraces planted: Clemente Orsi lived here with his wife Teresa Paladini, dialect Trè, with their five children Ilde, Teodora, Jacopo, Matteo e Mario.
