More About Me

Ciao!

Benvenuto or Welcome to my life in Tuscany.  
My name is Lisa Brancatisano and I am an Australian living in Florence, Italy.  This is my first of what I hope will be many more posts sharing with you my favourite places to eat, drink, shop and play here in beautiful Tuscany.  At the moment it is so hot here – the last week has been in the high 30’s (celsius) and on the weekend it even reached 41!!!  
Luckily it is not too far to escape to the beach where you can often find me on the weekends. We either go to Pietrasanta in Versilia where my sister lives or to Cecina which is in the province of Livorno. I will go into more detail in the blog on the beach lifestyle here in Italy.

Ciao, I'm Lisa B,
I’m a magazine founder & editor, a private food & shopping guide and watercolour artist who wants to share everything I know about the best-kept secrets in Tuscany with you.

I created This Tuscan Life blog, magazine and experiences to share everything I love about Florence & Tuscany, one of the most popular and visited regions in Italy.   Add a splash of watercolour & you've got a creative mamma of two who wants to show you the true & authentic side of Tuscany.

I always love discovering new fashion brands and so you can imagine my delight when I was recently introduced to a beautiful new Florentine brand called @pavonefirenze.

Founded in 2019 by Creative Directors Angela Testani and Massimo Brilli, PAVóNE FIRENZE is a women’s shoe and accessory collection, designed and created in Florence.
