77. Memorandum (libro di memorie) on my properties 1676–93

Biblioteca Roncioniana, Prato: Caccini Del Vernaccia Archive
section A, no. 255
SENDER: Ugolino Del Vernaccia

The volume is not a piece of writing strictly related to trade, but a document that bears witness to what we might call the other side of the coin: with the proceeds of the trade that his company earned in Europe and the Mediterranean, Ugolino Del Vernaccia made considerable land investments, which he inventories here. Specifically, in his memoirs, Senator Del Vernaccia described the expansion of the ‘Fattoria di Cintoia’, a vast estate located in Greve in Chianti, in the Florentine countryside.
