Description

Texts by Fabio Baroni, Lucia Giovannetti, Sonia Gobbato, Francesca Grassi, Francesco Mallegni, Tiziano Mannoni, Giuliana Pagni, Juan Antonio Quirós Castillo, Gianni Zanchetta.

The volume presents the results of the excavation of the hospital of San Nicolao di Tea, located on the Apennine watershed between the Serchio valley and the upper Aulella valley, in the municipality of Minucciano (Lucca). The site is particularly interesting for understanding the whole of the early medieval rural road network of the area. The excavations and studies of the archaeological finds, conducted with scientific methods, allow us to hypothesize the spaces of the hospital, their functions, and the kind of daily life that took place inside them in the various periods. An interesting result is that the dimensions and the masonry of the building of Tea, and the traces of the quality of life that took place inside it, compared to the hospices already studied in the Apennines and in the Alps, exceed the characteristics of a medieval street of secondary importance. The results of the excavation allow Tea to be placed in a coherent historical context, which includes the Serchio Valley, and in general, the northwestern Tuscan Apennines.
