Medici Villa of Petraia

Just a few kilometers from Florence? the typical suburban residence, refuge for the grand dukes of the Medici family from the efforts of the city. An ancient fortified building, of which the great tower still remains, was enlarged towards the end of the sixteenth century to build the current villa and the surrounding land was dug out to frame it in the beautiful terraced garden. The courtyard of the villa, covered in the nineteenth century,? decorated with frescoes by Volterrano and Cosimo Daddi. The famous bronze sculpture by Giambologna depicting Venus-Fiorenza, which completed the homonymous fountain placed in the garden of the villa of Castello,? now placed inside to guarantee its conservation.
