Scandicci

Description

Scandicci rises on a hilly area placed between the Arno river and the Valley of Pesa.
The origin of the town goes back to the Roman Age, even if some historical data would show its importance as a trading centre already in the Hellenic Age.
The origin of the name of Scandicci is doubtful: according to the best hypothesis, the name comes from the Latin verb "scandere" that means "to go up" referring to the highest settlement of the town, that could be gained going up to the close hill.
The official history about the community of Scandicci started on the second half of the eighteenth century under Leopoldo of Lorena's domination. He started a reforming process that built the first communities of Casellina and Torri, and unified all the territory.
Among the most interesting monuments to see in Scandicci we point out here the Badia di San Salvatore a Settimo (Saint Salvatore in Settimo Abbey), the Chiesa di San Martino alla Palma (Saint Martin to the Palm Church), the Parrocchiale di Santa Maria (Saint Mary Parish), the Villa Paserini (Paserini Villa) and the Castello dell'Acciaiolo (Acciaiolo Castle).
