Made wealthy through his connections to the Pope, Archbishop Francesco Salviati purchased this Tuscan villa in 1475 in anticipation of becoming archbishop of Florence. He spent the next few years having it renovated in the Tuscan style, while plotting with the Pazzi family to invade Florence. Sadly, this left him very little time to enjoy it before his inevitable demise.

After the conspiracy went south, archival documents indicate that Salviati exchanged his archbishop outfit with one of the residents of Florence, who was then lynched in his place, while he escaped to his villa.
