Between tradition and innovation

The Tuscan Bistro comes to life from a dream of the Ferragamo family, that dream called Il Borro.

The origins of the village of Il Borro are lost in the history of medieval Tuscany, a thousand-year history that saw the protagonists illustrious families like the Pazzi, the Medici Tornaquinci and Savoy. Surrounded by the scenic ancient Via dei Sette Ponti, an area rich in art and culture among the main Tuscan cities (Florence, Arezzo and Siena), the Borro is an unspoiled oasis where everything has its own past, where every corner has a story to tell.

Tradition, but not only. In Il Borro runs a strong desire for innovation that puts this historic place in perfect harmony between what was and what will be. A large number of projects for the future, in particular to environmental sustainability, able in recent years to give a tangible sign of modernity, rest assured that the past can not exist without an active present.
