The name of this Villa, immersed in the greenery of Mugello valley between S. Agata and Galliano, in the town of Scarperia, derives from old Florentine language and it means "bud". In fact, as a famous anecdote relates, Villa Medicea Lo Sprocco enjoys the first ray of sunshine in the morning and the last beam of light at sunset, from which the first bud springs.
Villa Medicea Lo Sprocco, which was built during the fourteenth century at the desire of Lorenzo and Giovanni de' Medici, is immersed in an ancient park which contains, amongst other trees, two giant sequoias and an extremely rear "Copper Beech", which is now 450 years old. From the tree-lined drive which leads to the Villa it is possible to glimpse the loggia, with its arcade, chich opens into vast halls , wonderfully frescoed and connected to each other by round arches.
