The Villa Agostini Venerosi della Seta at Corliano is a “Palazzo of Gentlemen" which the Florentine Vincenzo Pitti described as “the most beautiful mansion that there is near Pisa” in the first half of the seventeenth century. The villa, renovated by the architect Ignazio Pellegrini in the eighteenth century, is externally decorated with sixteenth century graffiti, typical of the Florentine mannerism style. Harpies, crowns of fruit and flowers, birds and other symbols represent the virtues of “Fortitude, Abundance and Fortune”. The same themes are to be found in the internal frescoes of the main reception hall and in those along the main staircase by Andrea Boscoli. The park has been changed several times in the centuries, according to the different age's trends and encloses the eighteenth century Coffee House, the olive oil mill stables and the church of St. Peter and Paul.
