Streets, Parishes, Notes:

"Quarter: S. Croce, Parishes: S. Cecilia, S. Firenze, S. Piero Scheraggio, S. Procolo, S. Appolinare, S. Romolo, Streets: Piazza del Duca (Pza Signoria), Piazza S. Firenze, V Condotta, V dei Cimatori, V del Garbo, V dei Lioni, V della Ninna. Square 49 had a moderate number of households, many shops, some patricians, some households with servants, few households w/o surnames and few households headed by widows. The central post office (a ducal monopoly) was directly across from the Palazzo Vecchio under the so-called "Tetto dei Pisani". Shops of booksellers (printers and bookbinders) were likely here, particularly in V Condotta and at the top of Pza S. Firenze."
