Stia

The centres and surrounding area bear witness to the faith of its people in the two monasteries of Camaldolese and Domenican nuns and in the Pieve of San Pietro a Romena, one of the most important examples of Romanesque architecture in the Casentino, not far from the town. The Castle of Romena, a symbol of administrative power, was a fortress belonging to the Guidi Counts and is mentioned in Dante’s Hell canto XXX. Paolo di Dono, known as Paolo Uccello, a master of prospective was born here.
Every two years the event known as “Forme di legno”(wooden shapes), takes place here, an event that combines the art, craft and culture linked to wood. In some of its shops one can find the famous “panno del casentino” woollen material that weavers have been producing for over five centuries using the typical green and orange colours.
In September takes place the famous “Bierfest”, not to miss for German bier lovers.
