Riparbella

It is set in a beautiful place on the Southern slopes of Poggio di Noccola. Contrary to other villages, it has not a round shape but it has been built along a road on a ridge of a hilly crest. The name maybe comes from Ripa albella, that is “Ripa bianca” (white steep bank), because of the whiteness of its tuffaceous and sandy soils that are on the top of the hill. In Medieval papers and up to the XVII c. its name was “Ripalbella” or ”Ripabella”.
 
The small castle was probably built around the year 1000 and it belonged to the property of Counts Della Gherardesca. At that age they lived in two other small castles in the surrounding, Belora and Bovecchio. The former already quoted because of the Etruscan excavations, the latter entirely lost and also the place where it was it is now unknown. 
 
The church entitled San Giovanni Evangelista it is also of this age, know and quoted in the Medieval sources. Near of the plane of Cecina, in an earliest marshy land, easy to defend and rich in fauna, it was a fued until 1755 and got its autonomy in 1780 by Leopoldo da Lorena. It is famous for its woods and Mediterranean scrub, where numbers of wild boars live. It is particularly appreciated for its art to cook especially game, mushrooms, and other typical dishes of the Tuscan cooking.
