Profumi del Forte
Towards the middle of the 19th century, the noble families of Tuscany chose what was just a small village as their holiday retreat. Tall men in their top hats, flourishing ladies in white dresses ruffled by the sea breeze‚Ä¶ images that are engraved in memory.
Forte dei Marmi was born almost by chance.
The climate in Forte dei Marmi is fantastic: a cool breeze that refreshes hot summer days blows down from the Alpi Apuane, where Michelangelo Buonarroti sought precious marble to embellish so many splendid ‚Äúpalazzi‚ÄĚ. The Napoleonic fort, built in 1788 by Leopoldo I di Lorena, Grand-duke of Tuscany, seems to have been erected almost to protect from prying eyes the holiday privacy of the families of high-society.
As time passed, year after year, Forte dei Marmi‚Äôs vocation remained the same: nowadays the most famous of Italian artists and entrepreneurs continue to stroll down the tree-lined streets among the rich pine woods. Thus Forte dei Marmi‚Äôs notoriety grew as a place of peace and elegance, ideal for those escaping busy city life seeking rest and tranquillity.
Profumi del Forte relate this atmosphere to the senses of those who have lived them.
