Buongiorno! My name is Samuel Webster and I’m an artist from Australia. I have migrated (for now) from a city of 4.6 million to a Tuscan town of 3500. What that means is I’m enjoying the luxury of small town Tuscan living. I work at home, so I try to make time to leave my apartment and walk the streets to talk with people – locals will tell you that this is a long journey over a short distance. My Italian friends here in Pieve Santo Stefano, Arezzo have named me an ‘honorary Pievano’ and joke that I know everybody in town. During my week as curator, I hope to bring you some thoughts on small town living as well as the marvellous things I’ve grown to appreciate about Italian culture.
