On a hill in the Val di Bisenzio, between Usella and Carmignanello in the municipality of Cantagallo, sits the- imposing Rocca di Cervaia, whose name comes from the presence of deer, or cervi, in the area.
Its origins probably date to the 12th century: the tower was given by Federico Barbarossa to the Alberti counts, who made it the cornerstone of their defenses along the road leading to Lombardy. Dante Alighieri speaks of the Rocca di Cervaia in the XXXII canto of the Inferno (vv.40-60) when he tells the story of the Napoleone brothers and Alessandro degli Alberti, sons of Count Alberto degli Alberti.
