Villa La Zambra is a building located in the municipality of Sesto Fiorentino in via Antonio Gramsci which connects to the city of Florence. The area is densely populated with residential buildings, commercial buildings, schools, etc. The characteristic of the villa is the planimetric development in the shape of a T with a front extended for about 50m on via Gramsci 522. The current appearance, with an elegant facade culminating with a central gable aedicule, is typical of the villas of the early eighteenth century (rococo) and is the result of a complex series of transformations on an ancient residence already in the land registered in 1427. The Ginori family gave it its present appearance and it is remembered in the frescoed ceiling of the hall on which the family crest with the Ricasoli crest stands out, in memory of the marriage of Giovanni Giuseppe Ginori and Cassandra Ricasoli which took place on 23 September 1721.[1] The noble rooms are all frescoed with the typical themes of eighteenth-century residences by the Florentine painter Giovanni Antonio Pucci (1677–1739)[2] who signed (1711) the canvas on the altar of the noble chapel.

The villa is published in "Il Paesaggio Riconosciuto" Edizioni Vangelista Milano 1984 and is cited in various other publications like "The Florentine Villa: Architecture History Society" by Grazia Gobbi Sica.[3]

The property of over 1,300 square meters on two floors, with a large courtyard of over 1500 square meters with driveway access, has been completely restored in the late 1990s and is rented to the Ministry of the Interior of Italy, Department of Public Security, Polizia di Stato.[4]
