Castello di Verrazzanoresults 1-2 of 2
Official documents of the XIVth century describe the vineyards and the olive groves of Verrazzano. Giovanni da Verrazzano, celebrated navigator and discoverer of the bay of New York and the majority of the east coast of America, was born here in 1485. The famous bridge in New York was named after him in 1964. The important Florentine family of Ridolfi succeeded to the Verrazzano after the death of the last descendant; great works and initiatives related to agriculture and culture are due to them. A special mention goes to the Marquis Cosimo, president of the prestigious Academy of Georgofili, and Luigi Ridolfi, great Florentine patron active in sport and music. In 1958 the Cappellini family took over the Castle on the road of decadence and brought it back it to its former glory by restoring the villa and rebuilding the agricultural tissue according to an ancient model. Nowadays the Castle of Verrazzano is undoubtedly one of the reference wineries in the area.
