History Villa Scorzi
The original nucleus of Villa Scorzi was born in the '300 as a "mansion house" (rural settlement) owned by the Appiano family. In 1674 it was purchased by the Pisan noble family of the Scorzi who elected it as their country residence by virtue of the quiet, the wonderful landscape context and the proximity to the city of Pisa. In 1882 it was acquired by Oscar Tobler, wealthy businessman and in 1922 the estate passed to Count Mario Tadini Buoninsegni, husband of Tobler's daughter. The Tadini family remained owners until the mid-90s when the current ownership took over.
The restoration of Villa Scorzi
Subjected to frequent improvements, the Villa represents a precious testimony of the main architectural and artistic styles that have followed one another in Tuscany over the centuries. In the 1990s, a patient and careful restoration was necessary, carried out by qualified workers and conducted in synergy with the Superintendency for the Architectural, Artistic and Historical Environmental Heritage, which restored Villa Scorzi to its ancient beauty. Thanks to a careful study of the rooms, a selection of the typical colors of the area and a careful choice of materials, the estate has rediscovered its ancient splendor and splendor.
The Grotesque of Villa Scorzi
The rocaille-style cave of the 17th century is characterized by stalactites, stalagmites, shells and stones, has a strong dose of amber and black color. In past times, an extraordinary water conduit, exclusive of the property, originated at the foot of Monte Serra and reached the plumbing system of the fountain. The play of water and the reflection of light on the uneven surface accentuate its spectacularity.
