Grosseto between Etruscans, cowboys and the Natural Park of Maremma

Grosseto-Stemma

The city of Grosseto, capital of the province, is located in the middle of a flood plain crossed by the last stretch of the Ombrone River. The old town is enclosed by a fortified wall of the 16th century that includes numerous bastions and gates kept in perfect condition. The old town contains monuments that bear witness to the past of the city: first of all, Piazza Dante, where the Aldobrandesco Palace and the Cathedral are situated. In the municipal area, there are archaeological sites of primary importance, such as the Archaeological Park of Roselle, which houses various Roman buildings. The coast is only 12 kilometers and consists of a large sandy beach that in 2014 has been certified Blue Flag, for the quality of the sea and the tourists’ reception. Marina di Grosseto and Principina a Mare are two seaside towns with a large summer tourist flow. A long bike path connects the town with Marina di Grosseto, Principina a Mare and Castiglione della Pescaia. Folkloric events take place in various locations and, in large part, they are due to the folk traditions of the “cowboys”, in the past widely present throughout the territory of Grosseto.

Very characteristic is the wooden tabernacle on the façade. Inside, there are works of art from various historical periods. It is part of a cloister, where the characteristic Pozzo della Bufala, commissioned by the Medici family, is located. Rumor has it that the name of the well comes from a hoax trying to escape slaughter; the hoax went inside the cloister and fell into the hole that had been dug for the construction of the well, in 1590.

Type: Romanesque church-abbey (11th – 14th century) – ruins
Address: A1 route of the Natural Park of Maremma

The abbey ruins are located on the ridge of the Monti dell’Uccellina. The complex was built between the 11th and 12th century as a Benedictine monastery. In 1307, the monastic order transferred ownership to the Knights of Jerusalem (later the Knights of Malta) who undertook some restoration and fortification works. In the 16th century, the abbey was then abandoned.

The complex stayed abandoned until the 20th century, when restoration work began once again, and the ruins we can nowadays admire were discovered. The church, in Romanesque style with a single nave, has remained strikingly devoid of cover. The bell tower, with a square section, rises imposingly and has been carefully preserved over the years. Near the Abbey, there is the Uccellina tower, built in the 14th century as defense of the religious complex.

Grosseto Walls

grosseto mura

Area: Maremma
Type: 12th – 16th century building

The walls were built in the 12th century, but were repeatedly destroyed and then rebuilt in the following centuries. Much of their current appearance is due to the restructuring and fortification, carried out between 1574 and 1593, by architect Baldassarre Lanci, who was commissioned directly by the Grand Duke Francesco I Medici. The plant is hexagonal, with corners defended by six bastions of polygonal shape, and with guard posts at the outer top of the bulwarks. In 1855, the Grand Duke Leopold II tore down most of the guard posts, thus reshaping the harsh appearance of the entire fortification into a softer one, and transformed it into a tree-lined path, available to the inhabitants. Recent restoration brought back the original circular appearance.

Along the walls is the Porta Vecchia, which allowed the ancient Via Aurelia to go through the area. Riding the Bastion, built in 1575; Bastione Molino a Vento, built in the 16th century and that incorporates a garden adorned by a characteristic 19th century bath; Porta Nuova, the second gateway to the center; Bastion Fortress, an imposing complex of pentagonal shape built in 1593.

parco maremma

As for its historical and architectural heritage, in the area there are several buildings: the ruins of the Etruscan-Roman period near Talamone and, along the Ombrone River, the imposing ruins of the medieval abbey of St. Rabano and coastal watchtowers. Among the latter are of particular importance:

Roselle archaeological park

roselle1Area: Maremma
Locality: Roselle
Type: Etruscan and Roman archaeological site

Roselle was founded by the Etruscans and developed from the 7th century BC, becoming also home to kings, reaching its peak from the 6th to the 5th century BC. In 294 BC, Roselle was conquered by Rome. Over the years, the Empire rose to the rank of colony and had a period of great splendor: the construction of the forum, the basilica, the amphitheater and the baths.

Once the Roman Empire fell, the city began its decline, due to looting during the Byzantine and then Lombard dominations, the spread of malaria, and the emergence of Grosseto. Between the end of the 18th and early 19th century, with the start of the extensive reclamation undertaken by the Grand Dukes of Habsburg-Lorraine, the area came to be inhabited and a village was soon formed again. Roselle is now a modern town that has developed mainly in the last two centuries. During summertime, art exhibitions and concerts are held in the Roman Theatre.

roselle

Between the 1950s and 1960s, the ancient Roselle site was fully excavated and then transformed into an archaeological park. It is divided into two parts, the so-called “Excavations of Roselle”, the oldest part situated above a relief, and “Roselle Baths”, the most modern section. Absolutely recommended to visit is the Roselle Archaeological Park: the Roman Amphitheatre, the Forum, the Domus of Mosaics, the Temple of Flamines, the thermal baths of the 1st century BC, the early Christian church of Santa Maria, the fortification of the Moscow River and Tino the Grand Ducal spas of the 19th century.

Since the 1950s, a long campaign of excavations brought to light the ancient Rusellae. This is an overlap of buildings and walls dating back to the Etruscan and Roman periods. It belongs to the first traces of cyclopean walls, built between the 7th and 6th century BC: the perimeter is over 3 Km, with an average height of about 7 meters. The Forum and the Basilica, a rainwater collection device and a thermal building belong to the Roman period. In addition, there are also traces of an amphitheater (1st century AD) and villas.

parco archeologico roselle2

The Domus of mosaics dates back to the late Republican period of Rome. It was later enlarged and restored, as well as adorned by statues of Tiberius, Livia and Drusus Minor. The construction of the first thermal plant also dates back to the same period. At the time of Emperor Hadrian, the domus was the subject of a new restructuring: the thermal environments and tablinium were embellished with mosaics. On the southern side of the Forum are the remains of the Temple of Flamines Augustales, which was built in imperial times (1st century AD). In the early Middle Ages, it was transformed into a place of Christian worship, dedicated to San Silvestro, and its existence is ascertained from 765. Within the same archaeological site, in Poggio Mosconcino, are located the ruins of the church of Santa Maria in Roselle (also known as Santa Maria in Moscow), the early Christian cathedral of the town.

parco archeologico roselle1

It was built in the 8th century, outside the walls, over a pre-existing Roman bath complex. The interior was decorated with bas-reliefs now preserved in the Archaeological Museum of Grosseto. The church remained in operation until the 16th century, a time when it was finally abandoned. In this area, numerous Etruscan and Roman tombs, arranged in terraces at a constant distance, were also found. There, funerary objects have been found dating back to a later period (6th – 7th century AD).

The Scoglietto area was abandoned as a result of a heavy fire, which left traces both inside the cabin and in the levels of collapsed buildings, which were presumed to have been for religious use.

History of Grosseto

grosseto - Piazza Dante Piazza Dante

The land of the Butteri

grosseto1

The origins of Grosseto date back to the High Middle Ages. The town is mentioned for the first time in 803, when the ancient church of San Giorgio, and many of his possessions, were granted to Ildebrando Aldobrandeschi. The successors extended their domains over the entire area and there were accounts of the Maremma until the end of the 12th century. In 1151, the city lent oath to Siena. In 1204, the “Bill of Rights” was completed; this was a statute that regulated the relationships between citizens and the Aldobrandeschi family.

Between 1259 and 1328, Grosseto was in arms on several occasions against the dominion of Siena, but eventually gave up in 1336. The next period was characterized by progressive deterioration, due to pestilences and the raids of Turkish pirates. In 1552, Grosseto succeeded in expelling the Spanish militias that had seized much of the territory. By the end of the independence of Siena, the city became part of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany. The Medici Grand Dukes began the construction of new roads, but the flat areas around the city remained afflicted by the endemic problem of malaria and other infectious diseases.

grosseto3

Only when the Habsburg-Lorraine dynasty took office at the helm of the state (1737), the city was administratively separated from Siena and was granted the independence. Soon, the Grand Duke Ferdinando III and his successor Leopold II, undertook extensive land reclamation and, the rehabilitation of the plain, finally solved the problem of unhealthy lake areas. Currently, Grosseto is a growing urban center, equipped with all the amenities of a modern city and active, especially in the summer.
