THE HISTORY

After the Twin Towers tragedy, we at PITCHER & FLACCOMIO decided to start a Monthly Newsletter to entice all our friends, clients and those interested in Florence and Tuscany to come back to visit. Within the first few days of each month the latest issue of our NEWSLETTER is available here on our website. We have made several years of the back issues accessible to our clients and people planning a visit in the future. Since nearly all of the festivals occur at about the same time each year, one can choose the appropriate time to come.

In the NEWSLETTER we publish our latest listing of properties for rent and sale, together with clients' comments, information about life in Italy, and other articles of general interest. In each issue we present a property that we consider special for a specific reason.

Feel free to sign in for your copy, as we cannot do it for you. Also it is important to tick the square giving PITCHER & FLACCOMIO permission to hold your personal information as requested by the Italian privacy law.
