Capalbio (Tuscany)

Capalbio is a municipality in the Province of Grosseto, in the Tuscany region of Italy. It borders the following municipalities: Manciano, Montalto di Castro, Orbetello. The name derives probably from the Latin Caput Album or Campus Albus (White Cape or Field, respectively), due to the white alabaster stone dug in the area. The hills around the commune are part 'Denominazione di origine controllata' (DOC) that produces red, white and rosé wines as a dessert Vin Santo style.

@linmuir asks:

Can anyone give some advice or insight into a shock tax bill I've received 2 years and 11 months after purchasing my house in Tuscany? I've received, out of the blue, a brief email from the estate agents that the sale of my property was made through.

@jacthe asks:

Hi there, ...new to this forum and would appreciate any help. I'm sure this will be the first of many questions.

@JanJ asks:

We are planning to drive over to our place in northern Tuscany in April with a van load of furniture (all second hand) bits and bobs for the house etc but I have suddenly realised that this may not be as straightforward as it was pre brexit!! What are the rules regarding transporting stuff now?
