La Gualchiere di Remole Fulling Mill

Bagno a Ripoli, Florence (Ongoing)

Dating to Medieval times, the Gualchiere Fulling Mill tapped the Arno River for power used to treat wool cloth. Founded in the mid-1300s, the site was chosen to avoid more polluted waters downriver in Florence. In time a larger complex evolved including river barriers, a series of water-gates directing water to the millpond and to a little harbor. The medieval character of the buildings is still preserved to this day in the support structure and two-crenelated towers.
