NATURAL STAGE FOR THE HISTORY

Firenzuola mail on the side near to Imola of the Appennino tosco-romagnolo includes in its territory the massive rock formation called Sasso di San Zanobi.

Born as a settlement over the Apennines to oppose the power of the counts Ubaldini, dates from this precise historical moment the birth of Firenzuola, when the Ubaldini were defeated and their territory included among those of the Florentine Republic. In 1306, the commune of Florence decided then to start a civitas in the conquered territories, the construction of Castrum Florentiole, began in 1332.

During the second world war, unfortunately, the country was devastated by fierce fighting between the allies and the Germans, perched on the famous Gothic line.
