Meet another Dario, the writer. Maybe you have read some of his books or have even had the pleasure of meeting or spending time with him when he was conducting tours in Tuscany. Dario recently toured the U.S. last spring promoting his book, Too Much Tuscan Sun. I was able to catch up with him a few weeks ago in Tuscany where we shared an incredible lunch at the Relais Borgo Scopeto and attended a brief, but very captivating history session learning about the famous Palio, held twice a year in Siena.
Dario is a proud member of Siena's Caterpillar contrada, which actually won the Palio in 2003. Although Dario does not actually ride bareback around the Campo, his spirit and sense of community is overwhelming. He is truly "The Tuscan Man."
