Ferruccio Ferragamo is Chairman of the Ferragamo Empire - shops throughout the world selling luxury goods to the very wealthy. Seven years ago he purchased a Medieval ruin south of Florence called Il Borro. Since then his wife has devoted most of her time and energy to restoring the ruin with infinite care and love to its former splendor as a palace. No cost was spared: architects, designers, decorators were engaged from all over the world. The result is a monument of astonishing beauty, admired all over Italy.

Seven Years in Tuscany is Amanda Ferragamo's account of how this restoration came about. Apart from all the architectural, historical and cultural interest of the work itself, there unfolds in the pages of her book a human drama worthy of a television documentary.
