The Church, built in 1927, was dedicated to the Madonna of the Annunciation and, later on, to Saint Agapito. This happened in 1930 when the rural parish of Bisenzio joined the Annunziata and the Saint’s relics, as well as an altar-piece were moved there.

The parish church of the little suburb has been recently enriched with the sculptures by Mario Vinci and the polychrome stained glass windows created by the artists Mario and Chiara Balestra.

In addition to the original painting of the Annunziata, painted by Sister Imelda (1933), in the Church it is also preserved, as already said, the eighteenth century altar-piece with Saint Agapito and a remarkable seventeenth century maiolica with a Madonna with a Child, recovered in the Piazzetta (little square) of Villa Fontane.
