Siti archeologici

Tomba dell'Arciere

Zona: Val di Pesa (Chianti Fiorentino)
Comune: San Casciano in Val di Pesa – località  La Collina – Montefiridolfi
Tipo: sito archeologico etrusco (VII° secolo a.C.)

La tomba etrusca è costituita da una sola camera perfettamente quadrata che misura 5.30 metri di lato. Il dromos, il pavimento e le pareti della tomba sono costituiti da pietre di alberese provenienti dalle vicine colline di Campoli (circa 20 chilometri di distanza). La grandezza di tali pietre e quindi il loro peso (fino a 80 quintali) è impressionante e destano meraviglia le tecniche di trasporto e di costruzione degli etruschi già nel periodo arcaico. Sono stati ritrovati frammenti di ceramica, di avorio, di bronzo ed una piccola fibula d’oro. Oltre alle pietre di copertura, durante lo scavo venne alla luce anche una stele raffigurante una figura maschile armata di arco, probabilmente un cacciatore o un guerriero, esposta nel Museo di San Casciano.

CULTURE

History

san casciano 78Already inhabited in Etruscan times, the territory of San Casciano owes its fortune to the Roman road that connected the colonies of Florentia (the current Florence) and Sena Julia (Siena). The town was located at the tenth mile from Florentia. In the Middle Ages numerous caste were built, subjugated to the Florentine episcopate or to powerful families, such as the Gherardini, the Buondelmonti and the Cavalcanti. In the twelfth century the house was a fief of the Florentine bishops, who in 1241 granted the first civil statutes. Shortly after it became the capital of a Podesteria including the League of Campoli, for a total of over forty “peoples”. The importance achieved by the town is such that, in the Statute of the Podestà of the City of Florence (1325), one of the main roads that branch off from the city gigliada is called “road to San Casciano”. Unfortunately in the first half of the XIVth century, San Casciano was occupied first by the emperor Arrigo VII (1312), then by Castruccio Castracani who, in February 1326, sacked the village and burned it. Precisely as a result of these facts, the Republic of Florence decided to fortify the village with walls and a keep, in part still existing. In 1512 at the Albergaccio (locality Sant’Andrea in Percussina) the exile of Niccolò Machiavelli began. In 1880, after the unification of Italy, San Casciano became a municipality.

Curiosities

In the territory of San Casciano in Val di Pesa, some films have been shot, including:

Amici miei: the scene where the swag with the money is thrown into the river was turned on Via Scopeti, at the same height as the Scopeti bridge; the next scene, where the group opens the tabernacle to take the swag with the money, was shot on the bridge of Cappello, in Via di Luiano.

Amici Miei Act II: the scene where the protagonists stop to bring down the loan shark Sabino Capogreco (Paolo Stoppa) to carry out their needs was turned on the SP92, at Villa Le Corti.

The "Monster of Florence"

In the early 80s of the last century San Casciano was at the center of national and international news for the events related to the murders of the so-called “Monster of Florence”. A serial killer was the author of a series of eight double murders in the area. The crimes of the Monster of Florence developed over almost 20 years. The victims were all young couples who belonged to the countryside in search of intimacy.
