The medieval village is documented since the XII century, is linked to the name of Carlo Lorenzini, author of Pinocchio. The Florentine writer, whose mother was originally the country, there spent part of childhood and it took the name firmandosi, Carlo Collodi. The small village preserves an ancient fortress and aristocratic Garzoni villa with large garden and bases its economy on tourism thanks to the park dedicated to Pinocchio.

The Castle of Collodi, as it is also called, presents itself as a true and proper "cascade" of small houses and climbing on the slope of a hill steep, arranged on the sides of the two triangles which are touching with the vertices. At the summit there is the ancient fortress, to the base on the other hand, the majestic Villa Garzoni, which stands on the ruins of the ancient medieval castle and that seems to hold the entire village. Strolling through the streets of the country it is observed with amazement the state of preservation of the village. You can still admire the stones that slabs small tracks in the midst of the homes, the remains of fortified structures as some ports of the village. Have now arrived at the apex of the ancient hamlet contemplates the beautiful Parish Church of San Bartolomeo, from where you can enjoy a splendid panorama.
