Crespina | Villa Montelisi or Ciuti

The villa was built in the 16th century by the Florentine Puntolmi family who used it as a hunting lodge.

The original body of the building is on two levels. The façade and interior reproduce the typical features of 16th century Florentine minor architecture. Next to the villa, an oratory with simple classical forms was built in 1741, attributed to Francesco Melani, well known for having decorated the interior of the Church of San Matteo in Pisa.

Note the development of the later outbuildings, such as the small villa and garden in 19th-century style.

The villa is located in the village of Crespina (Piazza Cesare Battisti) and is owned by the art critic Carlo Pepi, who has used it as a museum house.
