Orciatico is a small medieval village in the municipality of Lajatico, close to Volterra, the coast and Pisa International Airport. It is also within easy reach of Florence, San Gimignano and Siena.
The area is well known thanks to Il Teatro del Silenzio, an open air amphitheatre located near Lajatico, 4 km from Orciatico and hometown of the classical tenor Andrea Bocelli. The theatre remains silent all through the year but once every July people from all over the world visit as the theatre hosts a concert by Andrea Bocelli, its honorary president, and other international stars.
