i was born in prato.so i love this place and i wish i will help it to be discovered by worldwild travellers!
prato is a big town in Tuscany!it's famous for textile manifactures until the midlleages period!now this industry gets in troubles for chinese new markets...
prato has a beautiful medieval walls aroud the town and its cathedral is made with marble of Calvana caves ,it's a dark green marble.
we also have a medieval castle named castello dell'imperatore ,it is empty inside because it was used on 2 world war to refuge the homeless.
we have a modern art museum very charming and more famous abroad than in town..
i wish to meet everybody in prato!
welcome you!
