The name is fantastic and recalls the almost rarefied atmosphere. We can perceive the sense of a suspended place in the time and in the space, with a magical feeling. This aura of mystery suggested the name Fertuna that, with its elements, reveals itself as an holder of concrete messages close to reality: first of all the consonance with the word “fortuna”, which sounds like a good wish, even if its ancient etymological meaning refers to the favorable configuration of a place. Secondly, the theme fert, from Latin fertus, means fertile. It’s in the heart of Maremma Toscana, the land which lies along the sea between Toscana and Lazio, among green hills of wild nature that create endless light spaces towards the Tyrrhenian Sea. This place is simple and isolated. The key note is represented by nature, by spontaneous vegetation on which the human hand acted without abuse of power by designing an amphitheatre of vineyards. Once, this area was a cradle of Etruscan and then roman culture, with the presence of many necropolis. This proves that, for centuries it has been known as an ideal place for living, working the ground and improving thanks to the territorial positioning richness. Fertuna overlooks for about 1 km along the “Antica Via Aurelia” course, traced by Romans, since the III century b.c., a work which allowed Rom to bring and consolidate its governance.
