About the Church of Saint Michele Archangelo in front of the house:
A Ecclesiam Sancti Michaelis in Impore appears cited April 30 780 in the foundation of the abbey of San Savino in Pisa , but it's probably a fake. The first certain document is dated 10 December 1119 when his parishioners were forced by Conti Guidi to move around the parish church of Sant'Andrea to go about populating the new center of Empoli. In 1192 the church of San Michele was confirmed by Pope Celestine III to the parish church of Empoli.
In 1258 the Ecclesia Sancti Angeli de Empoli Veteri was again confirmed to the parish Empoli by Pope Alexander IV ; at that time the church enjoyed a good economic situation confirmed the tithes paid in that century and the archive of the church, which still exists and stored at Pisa .
Although the oldest document of this church is a fake, the abbey of San Savino was up, however, the patronage of the church and this privilege remained until 1561 when it passed to ' Order of Santo Stefano ; in 1651 the same order undertook extension work, cant and decoration. In 1673 , during an apostolic view, was called "the church small but decent" since it has only one altar, a font of column, a bell tower, a parsonage and its cemetery fenced, placed in front of the facade.
In 1787 the church was deconsecrated and annexed to the nearby church of Santa Maria a Ripa ; shortly after the building was sold to private owners, and over the centuries has gradually degrading fiction before having barn, tool shed and then finally of fermentation room.
A few years ago it ended the restoration works that have recovered the original architectural structures still exist and where reinstated parts sketchy transforming the building into a private residence.
