About the area:
San Casciano in Val di Pesa
San Casciano was originally mentioned as a fief of the Bishop of Florence, who made its first statutes in 1241. In 1278, the domain shifted to the Republic of Florence. A few years later San Casciano became the capital of a local alliance, including the Alliance of Campoli, and the seat of a podestà, therefore having the government of forty parish churches. By 1325 San Casciano had become so important that a statute of the Florence podestà described one of the main roads departing from the city as follows: "strada per quam itur ad '"Sanctum Cassianum"' (?) versus civitatem Senarum et versus romanam Curiam" (i.e. "the road going through San Casciano towards Siena and Rome"). That San Casciano's history is bound to its roads is shown also by its shape, which is in the form of a cross: one side going from Florence to Siena and the other, following the hills' ridge, linking the Chianti area with Montelupo and the Arno river basin. Furthermore, a major role in San Casciano's development was played by the improvement in agricultural productivity resulting from sharecropping, which led to population growth and the formation of commercial centres like Mercatale and the castle of San Casciano "a Decimo" itself.
