Garibaldi Avenue
Foto Montelupo Fiorentino: Garibaldi Avenue
In the elegant Garibaldi Avenue, the main city street, is the clay sculpture shown in the picture. It is a Sergio Pucci's work and is called "The stranger can only see what he knows". Before the statue is a fountain which is in the shape of a boat. The pavement is decorated with a motif representing the waves of the Arno river. These three works are conceptually conveying the idea of travel and migration.
St. Lawrence

The church-tower of St. Lawrence is the town symbol. It was originally built as a fortress located on the top of the hill overlooking the whole valley and, afterwards, turned into a church dedicated to the patron Saint, St. John Evangelist. The interiors are decorated with noteworthy frescoes by the Florentine master Corso di Buono.
Villa Ambrogiana of Medici

It is an elegant squared building constituted by a central bay and four angular towers set. Today it lodges the psychiatric hospital and a museum. It is located where the Arno flows into the Pesa.
