Palazzo dell Opera is located in the old town centre of the village on a small and nice square close to the Monastery of San Michele Arcangelo originally from the eleventh century. The palace faces the Bell Tower the Monastery the village the Monte Amiata and the Tuscan and Umbrian landscape. Saying Tuscany the first idea that comes to your mind is that of gently rising grounds of smooth hills to enjoy a delicious view. Nature and culture unlike in many other places play an important role in Tuscany. On one of these hilltops you can find the village of Chianciano. Once arrived at the entrance of the medieval lanes or leaning on the balcony of some old palace you will see the wide spaces of Tuscany and Umbria. Here history tells you about the Etruscan civilisation of free city states the Vatican states and the Duchy of Tuscany Lotharingian modernity and about a grand century the 19th century. In the middle of this grand century the Palazzo dell Opera opened his doors to the foreigners with two rooms and a simple closet. Habitual clients were the touring companies that performed their melodramas in the one splendid theatre that today unfortunately does not exist anymore. Passing the years the guest house has seen personalities and poets. Pirandello here wrote a part of his famous Novelle the inn has offered hospitality to many heroes like for example Garibaldi. Today you can still find his bed and the correspondence of the village doctor Coli who fascinated by the hero followed him to the battle fields until the unification of Italy. Then the Twenty Century began and while the guest house still offered accommodation to theatre companies and salesmen Chianciano in the period of the Belle Époque became an attraction and a national tourist resort. Grand and comfortable hotels were constructed due to the modern times. Two rooms and a simple closet were not required any longer. The cinema had replaced the taste of melodrama and the foreigners had become too demanding for the simplicity of an inn. At the beginning of the Thirties the guest house had to close. The place remained inhabited until the Sixties and was then completely abandoned. In the middle of the Eighties the palace has been reopened after a careful and thorough restoration. Only a feeling of nostalgia remains thinking about the touring companies that will not be guests of the palace any longer. They have disappeared together with a grand century. But this belongs to the past and today the palace has reopened his doors to the traveller interested only in one thing: to offer warm and authentic hospitality that permits the guest to live again the particularities that make the difference. Today like once upon a time
