The lands of the Medici
#anellodeimedici - #Medici
An all-Tuscan circle, dedicated to one of the most important families in Italy: The Medici.
We are in the valley of the Medici Villas and, among the fourteen declared Unesco Heritage, there are some of the places that will be touched during this trek: the Trebbio Castle, an imposing construction commissioned by Cosimo de' Medici that overlooks the entire Mugello, venue loved by Lorenzo the Magnificent, also hosted a very young Amerigo Vespucci fleeing from the plague of Florence. And then the Pieve di San Piero with the baptismal font in glazed terracotta by Giovanni della Robbia (1518) bearing representative paintings of the life of Saint John the Baptist and the Medici's crests on the corners. Furtheremore, evidence of the Roman era crossing the bastions of the Flaminia Military Road to discover a submerged bridge (the Colombaiotto) in the Bilancino Lake. A journey not only amoung nature, but dedicated to history.
