Artimino - Comeana
- Restaurants - Typical Products - Services -
The village is nestling among the beautiful tuscan hills, in the wine-growing area Vino di Carmignano, an area that already Cosimo de' Medici appreciated. Artimino, or Artumena as the Etruscans called the place, was already in the 8th century before Christ of great importance. This is also generated by the numerous Etruscan burial chambers that were found in the area around Comeano, Poggio a Caiano and Artimino. After the decline of the Etruscan reign followed the Romans. Already under the domination of the Romans, were cultivated wine and olives. The castle of Artimino was erected in the 10th century. Because of its strategic position, half way between Florence and Pistoia, it was always distputed by these two towns. In the middle of the 14th century Artimino fell under the Florentine domination. Artimino is well-known for the Medici-Villa La Ferdinanda. The Medici-Villa La Ferdinanda has a rectangular form with towers on both sides, similar to the ones of a fortified castle. Today it is seat of the Etruscan Museum.
