San Marcello Pistoiese

San Marcello Pistoiese is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Pistoia in the Italian region Tuscany, located about 45km northwest of Florence and about 15km northwest of Pistoia.HistoryBefore the Roman conquest (3rd-2nd centuries BC), the area was likely inhabited by some Italic tribe, such as the Ligures. The Roman senator Catilina died in 62 BC in a battle not far from here.During the Middle Ages, San Marcello was an independent commune (13th century), until it fell to Pistoia in the late 14th century. The frazione of Gavinana was the location of the eponymous battle in 1530.The original settlement started to grow substantially after the construction of the road connecting Pistoia to Modena, which passed through it (1781). In 1864 it was connected by the Ferrovia Porrettana, from Pistoia to Bologna, later expanded with an electric tramway line (Ferrovia Alto Pistoiese), from Pracchia to San Marcello.ScienceSan Marcello is home to the Pistoia Mountains Astronomical Observatory.
