Amelia Bandini donated in 2010 an extremely interesting group of historical books – dating from XVI to XIX century- to the community of Castellina in Chianti.

In doing so she fulfilled the wishes of her sister Delia (1920-2009), who was particularly interested in local heritage and history throughout her entire life, which they both  spent for the most in the village of Castellina, growing very close to the community.

The inauguration is scheduled for September 8th at 5 p.m. and the exhibition will last until November 4th.
