Torre dei Marsili

(Borgo San Jacopo, 17) The Marsili were among the most ancient Florentine families; they built this tower between 11th and 12th Century. In 19th Century the tower was owned by the goldsmith Giuseppe Sorbi, who decorated the façade with four della Robbia-style terracottas (Annunciazione, two Angels and Jesus) which still today characterize this tower.
