Communities of Torniella, Piloni, and Scalvaia

Torniella, Piloni and Scalvaia are three hamlets populating the scarcely populated Farma Valley, half way between Siena and Grosseto, in Southern Tuscany.

Torniella (with the presence of folks also from Piloni and Scalvaia) was the starting point on January 4, 2007 of the Palla a 21 in Chicago project. This subsequently triggered many of the stories you find on this site.
A summary of the case is presented from different angles in two articles (Il Tirreno, 2016, and Langscape Magazine 2018).
