Historical notes

The original name, which is found for the first time in a document of 1115, was MonteFicalle, presumably of Etruscan origin, or more simply deriving from the abundance of Fico trees found on the hill. The Castle belonged to a noble family of Lombard origin; in the course of history it then belonged to the Ricasoli family, to Benci da Figline and finally to the Gherardini, a family originally from the Municipality of Greve in Chianti. Legend has it that Federico Barbarossa also passed through Monte Ficalle with his raids. During the thirteenth century, to emphasize its strategic importance and the Florentine became the seat of the League of Val di Greve. In the 1260, after the battle of Montaperti in which the Sienese defeated the Florentines, it was the scene of an unexpected attack by a team of Ghibellines against a family of Guelphs who owned some houses in Montefioralle, near the Cassero. Between the '300 and the' 400 suffered the raids and struggles between the Great Municipalities of Tuscany to grab the border areas; in the 1325 it was besieged by the Troops of Castruccio Castracani and between the 1397 and the 1402 suffered the raids of Alberto da Barbiano.

The work of redevelopment and enhancement of the Municipality

The Municipality has focused over the years on the enhancement and recovery of the village and of the structures ideally connected to the village, located on the path that is followed to reach it: the Pieve di San Cresci and the Antico Spedale di San Francesco, today the Museum of Sacred Art. As regards the village of Montefioralle, in addition to the acquisition and restoration of the Watchtower, the municipal administration carried out other important interventions thanks to the support of the Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze Foundation and in agreement with the Superintendency for Artistic, Historical Heritage and Florence Architectural. In particular, the recovery and consolidation of a large part of the ancient city walls, the restoration of a portion of the pavement near the north gate, as well as the local stone repaving of the church of Santo Stefano. In addition, the Slow Road project, the Chianti art streets, a historical naturalistic and artistic route created in collaboration with the cultural association La Macina di San Cresci, with the involvement of the Tuscany Region, of the University of Florence and some artisan terracotta companies located between Greve in Chianti and Impruneta.
