The street that leads from Buodelmonti square, going uphill for a little way and inserting on via Roma, to the suggestive via del Desco, is dedicated to the writer Ferdinando Paolieri (1878 – 1928) , who lived for a long time in Impruneta. Many are the votive plates and tabernacles along the itinerary, which witness the worship of Madonna of the Impruneta .
Turning down via Paolieri and leaving the square that act as a setting to the events of the characters of its many writings, on the side of the municipal palace you can see the terracotta tabernacle representing the legend of the Discovery of the Sacred Image (end XIX – beginning XX cent.) . Much older is the tabernacle placed at house n. 39 (first half XVIII) whose iconography could remind the original look of the sacred image before the complete 18th century repainting. Once turned down via Roma and passed the 18th century Villa Pasqui-Carrega, the itinerary continues in Via del Desco, little and very ancient built-up area whose name maybe maintains the memory of the simple desk (“dining table”) formerly prepared by religious to offer restoration to passing by poor people. Passed the glazed terracotta tabernacle representing the Annunciation (XVIII cent.) , the itinerary ends in front of the so called Tabernacle of the Desco [5, 6] with a fresco representing the Madonna with the Infant and Saints Peter, John the Baptist, Bartholomew and Paul in the central niche, the Trinity and the Annunciation on the upper part. The work (second half of the XV century) is ascribed to the Florentine painter Paolo Schiavo, partner of Masolino and of Masaccio’s brother.
