Florence, the canto of Bischeri

Poggio Pratelli

Canto from the greek “Kantos” the Florentines so called ‘the angle formed from the intersection of two roads, they were meeting places, where there were lodges of interest, shops and apothecaries frequented by citizens.

The Canto of Bischeri is on the corner of Via dell’Oriuolo and Piazza del Duomo, we are at the end of 200 and the rich family of Bischeri has many properties in Florence.

The Government of the Republic began negotiations for the purchase of real estate with the family of Bischeri in anticipation of the construction of the basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore. The Bischeri started a game on the upside with the Government, until the same decided to expropriate the land and homes of Bischeri.

It was ‘the economic meltdown and moral family, and from that moment the name of Bischeri in Florence is used in a derogatory manner and mocking them as’ the saying “there is no paradise for Bischeri”
