Manciano extends for 37,203 square kilometers in a hilly zone situated between the valleys of Albegna and Fiora. It is thought that the town’s name derives from the patrician Roman family name of Mancia who owned a large area of property called “Praedium Mancianum.”
Three adjacent villages are perfect examples of the Etruscan approach: Pitigliano, dramatically aloof on its tufa outcrop; Sorano, a semi-abandoned place that clusters underneath its imposing Orsini castle; and tiny, delightful Sovana. This one-street hamlet is perhaps the most atmospheric of the three, because its sleepy rural present belies not one but two historical high-water marks: first under the Etruscans (who created the rock-hewn necropolis, like a mini Petra), and again between the ninth and the 12th centuries, when it was a thriving bishopric and birthplace of the great reforming Pope Gregory VII. Only a few fortress-harbours such as Talamone, Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole managed to weather the pirate threat down on the coast.
