Description: Crespina witnessed the destruction of its castle, of which there is now no trace, during the conflicts between Pisa and Florence. At the end of the 18th century life revolved around the large noble villas; new, beautiful villas were built in Crespina in the 19th century by noble families of Pisa, Livorno and Florence, made famous by the visiting painters and artists, such as Giovanni Battista Tempesti, Silvestro Lega and Giovanni Fattori, disciples of the Macchiaioli movement. This historical villa is located west of Crespina, in panoramic position between the Valdera and the coast of Livorno area. The style is neo-classic, as many others villas built in this area, and the well-kept garden around the villa, which stretches across the entire length of the property, creates a continuum with the surrounding lanscape, as if the garden had no boundaries. Attached to the villa there is a a garage and an annex; at the back of the garden there is a dependance with kitchen/dining room, 2 bedrooms and bathroom to be totally restored. The villa has a surface of 240 sqm for each of the three floors: on the ground floor there is a nice entrance hall, study, double sitting room, kitchen, dining room, access to the cellars on the basement, a bathroom and several access to the garden. The grand staircase leads to the first floor where there is a central sitting room with fireplace and frescoes and access to a private panoramic terrace, 4 bedrooms with decorated ceilings and high ceilings. The top floor was the servants dormitory, and is in rustic style with spacious rooms. The style of the facades is very elegant, with decorative features. The villa include also two towers from which there are great views of the surrounding area: the towers overlook a landscape of vineyards, farmhouses, and olive groves. On one side one can see the Valdera meeting the Valdarno and at the back the Appennino and the Apuan Alpes separated by the green Monte Pisano.

Area: History of Crespina: The name Crespina derives quite certainly from the latin ' in Acri spinario' : a area full of brumbles and bushes. The first document mentioning Crespina is dated 983, and talks about the taxes paid to the church by the population of the village. In the beginning the town was subjected to the Episcopal authority of Pisa, later it became a free municipality allied with Pisan Republic. During the 12th-14th century it was the scene of epic conflicts between the troops of Pisa and in 1434 Florence destroyed the castle completely. After a period of decline the area was populated by farmers, being in a good position between Florence and the new Medici's harbour of Livorno. Under Pietro Leopoldo (1765-1790) the grandduchy of Tuscany reached a certain autonomy: agriculture had become the chief activityand the grand duchy introduced several reforms. At the end of the XVIII century this area had become the place where the landowners built nice villas for thei summer holidays. Crespina in the XIX century: Crespina is well-known for its beautiful villas, summer dwellings for the rich landowners from Pisa and Livorno, who in the course of past centuries had chosen this area for its beauty and climate. During this century Crespina was apreciated also by the painters like Ranieri Tempesti and his brother or Adolfo, Angiolo and Lodovico Tommasi (they were the so called Macchiaioli). Adolfo painted the famous 'Villa di Belvedere' , 'Acquaiole a Crespina', 'Paese in Toscana' and 'La Fiera degli uccelli' showing the owl festival on September 29th. Also the writer Antony de Witt, and the painter Giorgio Kienerk have celebrate this green and bucolic area, so close to the sea.
