The Cure is a residential area of Florence, located immediately north of the old town.
In ancient times, this area north of Porta San Gallo was open countryside and only in the nineteenth century was highly urbanized. In the square of the Cure was one of the many duty barriers for those who arrived in the city. The zone name is derived from "curandaie", ancient name for the washerwomen, who were also abbreviated as "cures" and rinsed clothes in the Mugnone. That of "curandaio" was in fact an ancient craft in flax production, which consisted of "cure" washing of the pieces until they lose their roughness and the yellowish color to get morbidity and a whiter color. Once the need to "cure" the paintings the name curandaio remained simply as a synonym for the washerman, that being mostly women were said curandaie.
Giuseppe Poggi designed carefully this part of town, especially in the most attractive points of the Fiesole hill slopes and along the bed of the Mugnone, where Boccaccio, in this part of the city, setting for the famous novel by Calandrino and heliotrope. From Piazza delle Cure started the first omnibus town line, which, from Freedom Square, arrived in Piazza della Signoria.
The area was disrupted by the railway cutting to the Florence Campo di Marte station, with the construction in 1914 of the overpass that connects the boulevard Don Minzoni with the square. The subway dates back to the seventies of the twentieth century; Today is one of the most popular places in Florence for graffiti and street art. The town square is a market held daily.
