HOME ROUTES S.POLO IN ROSSO

Visit S.Polo in Rosso

It is sure one of the more extraordinary buildings of the Chianti. In a locality that seems outside from the world, it blunts on a back of a hill a shape that seems inexplicable: draft of the Pieve di S. Red Pole in, kind in age not specified, probante paleocristiana, put forward on a depositor of the Beehive that has not for long begun its course. The evocative aspect is given by the fact that the pieve original is anticipated incorporated in the rests of a fortification.
S.Polo would be founded by the Ricasoli Firidolfi: it appears in fact, between documents of the Abbey to Coltibuono. in year 1070 like “Sancti Russian Pauli scifo”.

With the stipulated peace to S. Marcellino in the 1176 (consequence of the unravelled one of the Ghibelline party in Italy as a result of the defeat of Federico Barbarossa to Legnano), Siena must yield to Florence a part of the Chianti between which S. Pole. The being therefore a place of frontier and in position of bastion towards the Sienese territory, explain the structure of this pieve fortified.

The pieve it had to arrange of huge entrances extending itself its jurisdiction on a much immense territory, much to be object of a event told from Antonio Casabianca in its “historical Guide of the Chianti”: «,Other torbid ones happened in Chianti in years 1351 and 1352 when the sons of Arrigo Ricasoli and others of that consorteria attacked their uncle Ranieri, pievano of S. Pole in Red, that it was deemed very rich.
Ranieri resisted and indeed it occupied the castle of You concern some, and Florence then was forced to send Luca to you from Panzano and Luigi of the Actions from Sassoferrato.

S. Pole was fortified structure is deduced from an other fact, when in the course of the second Aragonese invasion of the Chianti of 1478, the government of S. Pole in Rosso, Florentine sends to a company of 100 soldiers to S. Pole under orders of the Enslaved conestabile in order to defend the territories from the incursions of the Sieneses that were besieging Castellina. 1 Ten of Nanny so writes to the Florentine commissioner. “It seems to us that you can make it (to defend S that is. Pole) because the site of that hill s'intende strong being”. However S. Pole falls in the hands of the Sieneses that hold it over a long time span since in the peace pacts it is established that the territories you mail within 15 miles from Siena, between which S. Pole, would be remained in Sienese. With the end of the Sienese Republic of the 1555 fortified strategic role of the pieve it fails. Perhaps a part of the manufactured original is pulled down in order to give rise to the current structure.

To testify a function little consona to a religious building two towers and the facade remain (on which the church) articulate and much highest is opened as it is convene to the spalti of a maniero. The church, of Romanesque system typically (three navate with a single apse) but with successive gotici grafts (cover with times to crocera), was a time partially frescoed with illustrating raffigurazioni the life of Christ. Alongside the church a beautiful courtyard that anticipates, on a side, arches to sixth lowered, in support of the advanced plan of rinascimentale print.
