Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Figline e Incisa Valdarno

The town of Figline Valdarno, located on the slopes of Mount Chianti, is located in the province of Florence. Ancient village mall, is located at an altitude of 126 meters above sea level and has a population of about 14,000 inhabitants. In its territory were found many fossils dating back to the Stone Age Pleistocene.Durante the Valdarno area is already populated, as evidenced by the rich collection of tools and worked flints found in the areas of Soffena, St. Juvenal, Cascia and gates. However, the Etruscan presence was not significant as elsewhere. At the time of the Romans, however, the area of today Valdarno lives a highly prosperous period, tied to agriculture. He has a testimony in the chronicles of Livy, describing the Valdarno, path from Carthaginian leader Hannibal, as a rich and fertile land. Figline The name derives from a Latin word, "Figalinae", that indicates a place where you work the clay to produce pottery, a tradition that the Romans have certainly borrowed from Etruschi.La history of the town begins around Mille . To be precise, it is a document of 1008 that certifies the existence of the fortress of "Fegghine", a possession of the Uberti, a powerful feudal family that resides in the castle of Gaville. Are of a century later, the news about the first churches. Subsequently, some residents of the settlement based on the hilly "forum" of Figline, a trading post, which also exploits the proximity to the Arno and soon begins to see rise residential areas and warehouses for goods. The destruction of Fiesole, operated by the Florentines, further enhances the strategic and economic importance of the new "market" .In 1198 Figline is part of the dispute between the free towns of Tuscany and the Empire joining early. However, the explosion of anti-imperialist conflict between Guelphs and Ghibellines, the village was influenced Ubertini and sided with the municipalities filoimperiali. It so happens the invasion and destruction of the castle of Fegghine by the Florentines, in 1250, and the consequent enrichment demographic of "forum" in the valley, that from then on, it becomes more and more in a city. Between 1353 and 1375 Figline will be fortified and with time it will become the ideal haven for refugees of the ancient feudal castles barricaded and demolished by the Florentines, as part of their campaigns against the feudal contado.Nel by Napoleon in 1800 he founded the Kingdom of 'Etruria in Tuscany and choose Figline Valdarnese as the seat of the Poggio, a veritable temple of naturalism, which are conveyed in many collections of fossils found in the territory of the Valdarno. At that time the city also attended the renowned scholar Georges Cuvier, one of the founders of paleontology. The assets of the Academy were then transferred to Montevarchi, where are still visible at the Museo.Nel historical center of Figline Valdarno, located on the slopes of Mount Chianti, you can admire the Collegiate Church of St. Mary and the Praetorian Palace. Of great importance are also the Church of San Francesco and the Church of St. Blaise. In this place the Masaccio, a native of the Valdarno, has made his first opera. This is the "Triptych of San Juvenal", made in 1422 AD.
