Introduction to the project

The Montaccianico project arose following a revival of interest in the Mugello area and in the question of its fortification and subsequent defortification by the new ruling urban forces which de facto changed the political and social face of such feudally dominated areas.








The basic framework of the archaeological project takes the form of a journey through history which, starting from the last “still” of the siege and destruction of Montaccianico (1306, the year when the terra nuova Castel San Barnaba, in other words Scarperia, was founded), traces back its various phases and reconstructs the system of the feudal contado (countryside surrounding the city state).
