Province of Grosseto, Toscana
The Province includes the larger part of the Natural Park of the Maremma, traditionally populated by the butteri, cattle-breeders who used horses until recently, with a distinctive style of saddle.
Once unhealthy because of the many marshes, Maremma was drained during the fascist regime and re-populated with people coming from other Italian regions, notably from Veneto. Today the area is provided with significant natural and environmental resources, where ancient traditions have survived and Tuscan culture is preserved. According to an administrative reform from 1 Jan 2014, the Province is scheduled for suppression and fusion with the Province of Siena.
