Church of San Frediano
History in a nutshell: Of the Church, originally dedicated to San Martino and San Frediano, we have evidence starting from 1061, together with the hospitium pauperum, hospice for the poor, located near the church of the poor, active until 1401. The building, entrusted to the Camaldolese, was granted to the Knights of Santo Stefano by Cosimo I de’ Medici and completely renovated. In 1675, a fire destroyed the wooden ceiling, replaced with a vault, still visible. Unfortunately, many of the works preserved inside have been sold or stolen. Today, the building is known as the college students’ church, due to its proximity to the Sapienza and the Scuola Normale Superiore.
