Terranuova BraccioliniThe last of the terra murata , built by Florence, still conserves the old wall and the towers from its foundation. Originally called Castel Santa Maria, it owes its change of name to the great Humanist of the XV cent., Poggio Bracciolini, who was born here in 1380. Frescoes from the XIV and XV cent. are conserved in the Chiesa di San Biagio ai Mori. Terranuova was also the birth place of Frà Diamante, di Feo, collaborator of Filippo Lippi, who was born around 1430. Of great interest is the view of the Balze which rise up to a point above the small village of Persignano. Traditionally, there is an Antique Fair held every second Sunday of the month (except in August), held in the squares of the historic centre.
