Villa Medici at Cafaggiolo

 

This was indeed a strategic spot along the road linking Florence to Bologna.

Even if nothing left of the original premises, we know the fortress built by the Florentine Republic in '300 had two towers, drawbridge, moat and was surrounded from high walls.

But Cosimo de’ Medici planned to turn the fortress into a sumptuous private residence where to give feasts and spend long summer days far from the hectic Florence.

So between 1428 and 1451 he entrusted the renovation project to Michelozzo.

This architect was formerly author of the townhome in Via Cavour, nowadays known as the Palazzo Medici Riccardi.

Michelozzo enlarged Cafaggiolo with the elegant halls aimed to host the most illustrious personages of their time.

The Cafaggiolo Castle remains one of the buildings more beloved and so more closely linked to the history of the Medici family.

Lorenzo the Magnificent spent long periods here, surrounded by his court of humanists and scientists.

In the late fifteenth and early sixteenth century, Lorenzo’s heir planted a fine majolica factory using a furnace in which later Ferdinand I would start a manufacture of mirrors and glass with French masters.

 

How to reach the Castle of Cafaggiolo: Follow the signs to Borgo San Lorenzo, and continue along the SP551 to San Piero a Sieve. From here, take the main road to Passo del Giogo and turn left on Via Nazionale.
