Pieve of Spaltenna

HOME ROUTES PIEVE OF SPALTENNA
 

In the immediate outskirtses of Gaiole in Chianti.

History of Pieve di Spaltenna

If the road is covered that gives Meleto leads to Gaiole, the landscape of the necks appears dominated from a great building: it is the Pieve di Spaltenna that, also from afar, anticipates the characteristics of the fortified architecture, with a high wall sormontato from snella the size of a tower.

If it is observed instead the construction from the opposite part, here is what then Spaltenna appears in all its grace: draft of one of the more meaningful monuments of the Chianti, with the ancient one pieve (whose origins go back to the first Middle Ages) committee to we in optimal conditions. One finds that the Viticola Tuscany, proprietana of the pieve Romanesque, of it has cured recently the restoration eliminating (except the altars of 1680) all the overlaps of settecentesca positioning. The most ancient relative documentation to the Piee di Spaltenna (dedicated to S. Maria beginning from XII the century) goes back per year 1003 under the title of S. Peter in Avenano.
When or happened the change it is not famous, since with this name we still find it LETO in brands of the Pontefice Anastasio IV of year 1153. The fact will have to be clarified because “it polulates” dependent were that of You concern some, S. Peter in Avenano, Donated S. in Perano, S. Daisy to MonteProssoli, S. Niccolò to Selvole and S. Tommaso to Moritegrossoli.
Therefore a variation of the name of the pieve would not have happened but, more simply. the center of the baptismal church would be moved by S. Peter in Avenano to Spaltenna, where probably already a community of canonical found itself as it leaves to presume the presence of the chiostro with annexed premises).
