The land ownership was, in origin, of Lawrence the Magnificent one, who chased in the marshy grounds.
The native plant of the villa goes back to the sixteenth century and you can still find ancient traces in the beautiful cross vaults of the wine cellars. During 1620 the villa and all of its goods, land and farmhouses, was administered by the Mercy of Pisa "so that with the incomes noble pisano girls were endowed or noble boys fallen in slavery for war ransomed."

Towards the end of that century the estate of Asciano was purchased by the Gualandi family, which the villa owes its current external aspect.
