Casole d'Elsa is a medieval hill-top village of 3000 inhabitants in the Province of Siena, in Tuscany, located about 50 km southwest of Florence. Canney lived at Casole d'Elsa between 1984 and 1993, in a 14th century Palazzo. The village and its immediate situation was the inspiration for many of his pictures of the period.
