I’ve recently bought a property in the Coreglia Antelminelli area. I need a strong person to help to clear the garden. Is there an equivalent of gumtree (which I use in the UK) where I can find a labourer to help with this?
Cortona is a town and comune in the province of Arezzo, in Tuscany. It is the main cultural and artistic center of the Val di Chiana after Arezzo. In 2000 Cortona established Cortona DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata). The goal is controlling and protecting the wines of D.O.C. Currently, Cortona DOC has 29 members and produce and control 14 different types of wines. The prevailing character of Cortona’s architecture is medieval with steep narrow streets situated on a hillside at an elevation of 600 meters (2,000 ft) that embraces a view of the whole of the Valdichiana. Parts of the Etruscan city wall can still be seen today as the basis of the present wall. The main street, via Nazionale, is the only street in the town with no gradient and is still usually referred to by locals by its older name of Ruga Piana. Other sights are the Diocesan Museum, the beautiful Santa Margherita Sanctuary, patron of the city, and to the Girifalco Fortress. Cortona hosts several events amongst which the Fiera del Rame (copperware market – late April), the Giostra dell’Archidado, a costume cross-bow competition (in May), the Steak Festival (August 15th), the Antique Fair (late August-early September), the Tuscan Sun Festival, (August).

I’m looking for a local builder in the Barga or Coreglia Antelminelli area, preferably one who speaks a bit of English. Any recommendations would be great.
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.
