History of Villa Gerini di Colonnata in the locality of Colonnata, Sesto Fiorentino, property in the 14th century of the Florentine Cappelli family. 'Colonnata' would have originated from the remains of the Roman aqueduct for Florence with a route partly underground, but near the villa partly above ground with arches, hence the toponym 'Colonnata'. Cappelli was an important Florentine family, Filippo Cappelli was standard bearer and ambassador to the king of France. The villa was enlarged in the 17th century and frescoed in the gallery and with fountains in the park.
He passed to the Del Benino family and from 1860 to the Marquis Carlo Gerini. It is said that the gardener Francesco Zoppi delivered to the Marquis Ferdinando del Benino of the gold coins found in the park of the villa, an event that inspired the famous episode of the Field of Miracles in Collodi's Pinocchio, Carlo Lorenzini. The villa and its park were reworked over the centuries and its current appearance and dimensions are largely due to the Gerini family. In the park we find a grove of holm oaks cut by paths, a lawn parterre with ornaments and stone basins, and an artificial lake in the middle of which two islets emerge which house a pavilion intended as a tea room. In the past the park was enriched by a series of rare plants, of which centuries-old plants and which include centuries-old plants.

History of Villa Gerini di Colonnata
The villa, which is surrounded by a large park, is recorded as an out-of-town residence from as early as the 14th century, when the Florentine Cappelli family were the owners. In the mid-17th century it passed into the hands of the Capponi family, who bequeathed it to the Del Benino family. In the second half of the 19th century it was owned by the marquis Carlo Gerini, who gave the villa the appearance it retains to this day, and its present name.
The building was much remodelled down the centuries: the austere appearance and monumental dimensions seen today are largely the result of alterations made by the Gerini family.
It is handed down that the gardener Francesco Zoppi gave to the Marquis Ferdinando del Benino of the gold coins found in the park of the villa, which inspired the famous episode of the "field of miracles' in Pinocchio by Collodi, namely Carlo Lorenzini.
The park, which was laid out in the 19th century when the surrounding vegetable gardens and other parcels of land were joined together, takes the form of a wood of holm-oaks, crossed by pathways, with a parterre in the form of a lawn adorned with stone basins, and an artificial lake with two islets in the middle, on which a pavilion used as a tea-house stands.

History of Villa Viviani. Villa Viviani is an historical florentine villa, the most ancient part of the building dates back to the 13th century, when the Tanagli family built a luxurious house, giving the possibility to admire the city of Florence and its surroundings from a highpoint.
The Villa, once named 'Belvedere' for its panoramic position, passed to the Cerretani family in 1600 who further contributed to enriching the character of the Villa. At the end of 19th century the Villa was inherited by the Viviani della Robbia family. In 1892 the Villa was inhabited by Mark Twain and his family and it was in this inspirational location that he wrote 'Puddn'head Wilson'. Mark Twain himself described the Villa exalting its views, the flowered terrace and its 'friendly and warm' atmosphere. The splendid Italian style garden of the Villa enjoys a breathtaking sight of Florence and the surrounding countryside.
