This property was bought in the sixteenth century by Francesco Rinuccini and then sold to the Strozzi family that built the sixteenth-century building. In the nineteenth century, Prince Ferdinando Strozzi commissioned the creation of the park to Poggi. Poggi built a large carriageway, the limonaia (lemon storage room), an English-style park with exotic plants and a wooded area. These varied areas also create the diversification of fauna, forming different habitats. On the side of Via Pisana , a staircase is decorated with two statues depicting Egyptians.
On a project by the Municipality of Florence (Bosco Cantastorie) visitors who want discover the park can choose three different itineraries. the memory path (red), the scientific path (blue) and the botanical path (green).
