THE ANCIENT GRANGE IN SERRE DI RAPOLANO


The Ancient Grange in Serre di Rapolano is today a Museum that tells the story of ancient fortified farms (granges), property of the Santa Maria della Scala Hospital since the XIVth century. In this case the structure, dating back to the 1200s, went through many changes until its dismantling in 1790. It is an important historical and cultural patrimony that waas the center of local farm production, assuring some of the dietary needs of the Sienese hospital, both as a grain depository and a seat of wine and oil making. The Museum shows to the visitors all these functions of the building and its history through ancient tools, photoes and documents
