Pescia

The city of Pescia has ancient medieval origins: its historical center is characterized by old palaces and elegant churches. Pescia, for its history full of events, since a long time is considered the main town of Valdinievole. The main city buildings are the Palace of Vicario (13th - 14th century), with its bell tower, the Palace of the Podestà (built between the 12th and the 13th century) and the Villa Sismondi. Among the religious buildings, deserve a visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, dated to the 5th-6th century, but restored many times, and the church of San Francesco, begun in 1241, to whose inside there is a painting dated 1235 representing the life of San Francesco d' Assisi.

Pescia is famous also for one of its numerous hamlets: Collodi. The name of Collodi is known anywhere: it is the pseudonym of Carlo Lorenzini, author of "Pinocchio", one of the most famous books all over the world. In Collodi there is the Park of Pinocchio, a kind of museum where you will find works inspired to the famous puppet, to the Fairy with Turquoise Hair, the Talking Cricket, the Cat and the Fox and the other characters of the book.
