Neighborhood Description

The name comes from the typical Florentine trasnformation of San Giacomo’s name. The Church San Jacopo in Polverosa has been dedicated to him, called San Jacopino to avoid confusions with other churches of the city center. The Church was situated in the middle of the Sqaure but has been destroyed during World War II.
It is well connected to the city center and to all the Universities of Florence thanks to buses. You can also reach the city center within 15 minutes walk. The square has a simple local appearance, with a few grocery stores and few homemade and cheap restaurants. The buildings were made during the Thirties, during the Fascism, when the area was developed .
There are only two exceptions: the first one is a modern building dating from 1976, characterized by assymetric forms zhere we can find a bank a few apartments today. The second one is recent and is the Dellapiccola Square in front of a Student House (2005), today, a meeting point for Summer events with small markets and other outdoor activities.
