Ortignano Raggiolo

There was imploring with his hands outstretched
Frederick Novello, and that one of Pisa
Who made the good Marzucco seem so strong.

Purgatorio, canto VI (16-18)


The village of Raggiolo, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy is not directly mentioned in the Canto VI of the Purgatorio of the Divine Comedy, but there is talk of Federigo Novello, Count of the Castello di Raggiolo.
