Something to know...
According to local traditions, the name "La Rotta" is due to the Arno river. A long time ago, the Arno was making a big turn toward the Padule di Bientina area and then a second turn back to Pontedera. The Arno broke the banks, with consequent straightening of the river course. The place where the break occurred was named la Rotta.
There are several other historical references that link the name "La Rotta" to the famous battle of Castel del Bosco, occurred between Pisa's and Florence army in the 1222: Florence won and consequently the place where the defeat occurred was named La Rotta (than means defeat).
