Getting far from the hustle and bustle of city life is simple in Lucca – at about a mile down the viale San Concordio is Sorbano del Vescovo, better known as ‘Sorbanello’. There, just off the path under the acqueducts, lies a grass road along the Lozzori River that dives into fields of sunflowers, hay, and ancient forest. There herds of sheep are guided by “sheep dogs” who literally work their magic to keep them all together. There there are no sounds except for crickets… frog season is over.
