On 5 December 1622 Pope Gregory XV recognised the new diocese of San Miniato, separated from the episcopal of Lucca.

The new diocese comprised 118 parishes with 19 parish churches and collegiate churches, 10 female and 13 male monasteries. Today it comprises 19 municipalities in the provinces of Pisa, Pistoia and Florence. The territory of the current diocese is divided into 4 vicariates, which in turn are subdivided into 91 parishes. The main patron saint is San Genesio.

The celebrations begin on 5 December 2022 and finish on 26 November 2023.

A number of events are already planned, such as the Bible readings on 3 November (one per month), which will continue until May. Or on 25 August with the solemn celebration of the patron saint, St. Genesius, at the archaeological excavations in the lower part of the town.

From 3 June to 2 July ‘Portraits of Bishops in the History of San Miniato’ at the Sanctuary of the Santissimo Crocifisso. The exhibition will remain open from 8.30 to 17.30. It will then be available for display in other towns and parishes. These are the faces of the bishops, which from 1622 to the present day have been re-presented and interpreted by the painters through a year-long project. Different personalities, scholars, builders, organisers, publicists and saints, lives intertwined with the hundred peoples of the ‘lands’ and ‘castles’ against the backdrop of the events that were changing the face of Italy and Europe over the centuries.
