Villa Medicea di Camugliano

Origin of the Name

In base to the most accredited sources, We believe that the name was born from the fusion of “pons” “sacci” that means bridge of Sacco. We suppose that “Sacco” was the name of the person had founded the bridge or he guarded it and received the tolls.

There is also a myth about the origin of the name “Rubbaorsi”(This is another name to call the citizens of Ponsacco), the myth says that there is a local group of thieves who want to steal a pig from a local shepherd, but instead of the pig they found a bear.
