Those who are interested will have until 12.00 noon on 9th September to send their expressions of interest (they must do so only by certified e-mail to

Requests for visits – obligatory for participation – to the areas subject to the selection procedure and identified in the map attached to the notice must be received by 2nd August.

We will work flat out to assign the available lots to those who really believe in the development of the Tuscan port of call.
