Hi Christina !
Happy to know that you're planning to come to Europe (unfortunately not in France — I would have been so happy to meet you!) and if I may help you to organize your trip, i'll be really glad.
So, maybe, I've a contact which could interest you :
ACSAF – Associazione Contemporanea Stampa d’Arte Fotografica  — is based in Florence and this group is really interested in historical processes, pinhole photography, etc.
I have not met them directly but last July, I had some pictures shown there as part of an international pinhole photography exhibition called "Senza lenti" curated by Italian pinholist and friend Paolo Aldi.
their web-site is there :
and they speak a little about alt processes and other historical approaches of contemporary photography.
I believe the association is managed by Cesare Bossi.
I'm sure it would be interesting for you to contact this group and to discuss with them the way you could meet them or work with them when you 're there  (as they are in Florence, it could be easy to organize something with them). And even if they are not directly responding to you search, I'm sure they will be very happy and efficient to help you meet some Italian artists and/or have access to darkroom facilities, etc...
On my side, I'm going to contact Paolo Aldi in Revereto (North Italy) and ask him for useful contacts for you (I know he is very involved with contemporary Italian photographers, artists, poets, etc.). I'll let you know if he may help you in any manner.
Hoping you can get something out of these info,
alternative cheers from France,

Dear All again,
If I were to take a group of students to Italy next fall, Villa Pieve in
Corciano, halfway between Rome and Florence, is there an alt
community/persons anywhere nearby?  (I am having, amidst all these other
changes at the university, to make a decision on whether to take the plunge
of a semester in Italy with my students, or roll over the whole overseas
program (ours is in the fall) to the art dept. (theirs is in the spring) and
have them take my students in the spring.  Or connect with one in Siena that
is just getting started.)

If I went, I would like it to be alt/experimental based and connect with
those in the area who are interested in such.

Alberto Novo, you are in Venice...I think that is fairly far away though we
do go there on the month of travel pre-villa.

Is alt well and alive in Italy and anywhere near Corciano??

I live in Montana where distance is no object--the state is 800 miles across
and driving 300 miles is no biggie, so I think I have a very skewed sense of
