The Piagge district is located in the western suburbs of Florence, in the area between Via Pistoiese, the river Arno, the old cemetery of Peretola and the municipal border with Campi Bisenzio, comprising much of the land of the eliminated municipality of Brozzi. The first building expansion project was managed by the Florentine town plan in 1962, which envisaged a model living area for approximately 14.000 residents. The building plan was ambitious from the point of view of the road network infrastructures (two bridges over the Arno were planned for connecting with the Ugnano zone and a parallel road to Via Pistoiese to be obtained by covering the Fosso Macinante canal) and services such as schools and sports and health facilities. However, a series of related problems (large excavations in the area, land being bought by private owners, etc.) did not allow the full completion of the project.

Abstract

The Piagge district is located in the western suburbs of Florence, in the area between Via Pistoiese, the river Arno, the old cemetery of Peretola and the municipal border with Campi Bisenzio, comprising much of the land of the eliminated municipality of Brozzi. The first building expansion project was managed by the Florentine town plan in 1962, which envisaged a model living area for approximately 14.000 residents. The building plan was ambitious from the point of view of the road network infrastructures (two bridges over the Arno were planned for connecting with the Ugnano zone and a parallel road to Via Pistoiese to be obtained by covering the Fosso Macinante canal) and services such as schools and sports and health facilities. However, a series of related problems (large excavations in the area, land being bought by private owners, etc.) did not allow the full completion of the project.
