In the Maremma area, Southern Tuscany, there is a fascinating, straight road flanked by centenaries cypresses. This 5 km long road, heading toward the beautiful Bolgheri village, was built at the beginning of 19th century and still has 2000 cypresses. It was celebrated by a famous Ode "Davanti San Guido" written by the the poet Giosuè Carducci, the first Italian to win Nobel Prize in 1906.

"I cipressi che a Bólgheri alti e schietti van da San Guido in duplice filar ... ".

This ode is learned even today by all Italian students: we might say that these trees are probably among the most famous in Italy.

Nella Maremma Livornese, nel sud della Toscana, c'è un bel viale diritto fiancheggiato da cipressi centenari. Lunga 5 chilometri, questa strada che porta da San Guido al borgo di Bolgheri fu costruita all'inizio del 1800 ed ha ancora 2000 cipressi. Il viale ed i suoi cipressi sono protagonisti della famosa ode "Davanti San Guido" di Giosuè Carducci, il primo Italiano a vincere un Premio Nobel nel 1906:

"I cipressi che a Bólgheri alti e schietti van da San Guido in duplice filar ... "

Questa poesia è ancor oggi studiata da tutti gli studenti italiani per cui questi cipressi sono tra gli alberi più famosi d'Italia.
