Originally called water tower, is an old water tower, located in the municipality of San Casciano in Val di Pesa (Firenze) in Viale San Francesco.
The tower was built with a wooden structure in the early ‘ 900 and destroyed following the bombing of the second world war. In the early postwar years the tank was rebuilt in form and actual size. The structure consists of a reinforced concrete cylinder, hollow inside with a spiral staircase to reach into the tank and top access cover. In recent years a careful restoration work has allowed us to reuse the Tower through the recovery of its original function to serve the local waterworks, through the implementation of certain measures:-the installation of a panoramic elevator that leads to the top of the Tower (37 mt) and allows 360-degree viewing of the entire territory of Chianti.
