Since the submission to Florence in 1370, the territory of San Miniato had become an area of expansion for the families of the dominant city.
During the same time, however, a group of local families also emerged. They found, even through local religious authority, a new balance with the political-military representatives of Florence, the vicars.
In the ancient village of Bucciano, located near San Miniato, in the early 1600s Borgo Bucciano was born.
The owner was Baccio Morali, a member of one of the aristocrats of San Miniato.
The "casa ad uso villa", as described in the documents of the time, was for years the subject of controversies related to the inheritance of the sons of Morali, Ranieri Antonio and Persio.
In 1910, after several successions, another illustrious owner, Alfonso Lorenzelli, bought the villa and the surrounding land, even thanks to his 18 years old wife´s dowry. This aristocratic coming from Bologna, got a small empire that became the summer residence of all of the family, including the Cardinal Benedetto Lorenzelli, Archbishop of Lucca, who commissioned the small Chapel that is possible to adrmire today, in the intimate Italian garden.
After being the house of parties and celebrations of this family, the Villa has been abandoned for years, waiting for someone to bring it back to shine!
Borgo Bucciano was then bought by the Bianchi family, in the Nineties, and today it looks like a charming and welcoming village where to spend moments of relaxation, enjoying the landscape and the sweet silence of Tuscan hills.
