The first news in possession relating to “Villa Il Colle” are kept in the State Archives of Florence: the first document dates back to the year 1330 and attests the presence of a farm called “Il Colle” consisting of a house with a hut and a furnace to dry figs. Also in the fourteenth century, the Villa was the stately home of the Bancozzi, wealthy merchants and dyers of Florentine fabrics and wool. On September 2, 1473, the Biliotti Family took it, who owned it for three hundred years. It is learned that in that period there was built a finely decorated oratory, where mass was celebrated: the cult was preserved even throughout the Napoleonic era. Later it became property several times: in 1813 it was acquired by the Lapi Family, then it went to the Moratti Espinassi to go again to the Kufner and Finzi; from here it was transferred to the Valori Family. After careful restoration with its subdivision, “Villa Il Colle” was finally restored to its former splendor by the Pierattoni family.
