BADIA DEL BUONSOLLAZZO, in the Medici town of Florence
Badia del Buonsollazzo, built according to the legend referring to Villani, by the will of Ugo di Brandenburg, who was Marquis of Tuscany before 961, who frequented the mansions of the Mugello feudal lords, leading a dissolute life (more or less like all those who they can afford it, then as now).
Once she had taken refuge in a cave because of a storm, she had a vision of the infernal penalties she would face because of her wickedness and she was so terrified that she would have vowed to build seven abbeys. In reality this is not known until the second half of the XXII century. It was before the Benedictines and then the Cistercians; some of the others remain traces in the beautiful cloisters incorporated in the eighteenth-century structures. The church, as it is presented today, was rebuilt by Cosimo III in 1705. The elegant, high and slender façade is rich in decorations with the Medici coat of arms in the center.
The name Bonum Solatium literally means "healthy shelter" for body and spirit.
