the mythical

Semifonte

Semifonte-20190925-092529.jpg

The Brewery is located right at the point where the oldest route of the Via Francigena, abandoned the course of the Via Cassia, turned north-west following the Val d'Elsa. These ridges were the subject of bloody clashes for the control of the Via Francigena, around 1200. The rapidly growing Republic of Florence was aiming to take control of a stretch of the Via Francigena and its traffic, expanding towards the south. With the support of cities loyal to the Empire, including San Gimignano and Poggibonsi, a new city, Semifonte, was built to stem this expansion. Semifonte managed to resist valiantly in Florence for almost 20 years, but at the end of a 4-year siege he had to capitulate and was razed to the ground. In memory of the ancient splendor of Semifonte, today remains the Chapel of the Archangel Michael, an exact reproduction, in 1/8 scale, of Brunelleschi's dome of the Florence Cathedral.

the Archeodrome

of Poggibonsi

The Archeodrome is a magical and surprising place, born from the somewhat crazy and imaginative mind of a group of researchers from the University of Siena (and from their arms ...), under the guidance of prof. Valenti. It is a 1: 1 scale reproduction of one of the most important discoveries on the hill of Poggio Imperiale, the village of the Frankish period (9th - mid-10th century).

The Village comes to life every Sunday, because the researchers are also the inhabitants of the place themselves, each with their role, profession and home.

The hill of Poggio Imperiale was in control of one of the key passages of the Via Francigena: pilgrims and traders from all over the world passed through here, since the Lombard period.

 

Our brewery is therefore very linked to the Archeodrome, with which it has collaborated on some evenings, with public cooked and tales of brewers at the court of Charlemagne.
