Poggio a Caiano

Located on the banks of the Ombrone river, Poggio a Caiano is located at a real crossroads of the Florence-Prato-Pistoia area.

Its fame is mainly due to the magnificent Medici Villa, a UNESCO heritage site since 2013, which houses the Museum of Still Life since 2007. Attached to the villa are the Medici Stables, renovated in 2000 and today a multipurpose space.

Among the personalities born in Poggio a Caiano or who have spent most of their life there are:

- Armando Spadini

- Ardengo Soffici, to whom the Soffici Museum c/o the Medici Stables is dedicated

- Filippo Mazzei, considered by historians one of the fathers of the American Declaration of Independence.

The municipal area has a small extension (5.97 km²) and includes the hamlets of Bonistallo, Poggetto and Santa Cristina in Pilli, in addition to the chief town.
