Scandicci (Italian pronunciation: [skanˈdittʃi]) is a comune (municipality) of c. 50,000 inhabitants in the Metropolitan City of Florence in the Italian region Tuscany, located about 6 kilometres (4 miles) southwest of Florence.
The settlement of Scandicci appeared in 1774 as Torri, and was later enlarged to incorporate several neighbouring communities.
- badia of San Giuliano a Settimo, known from 774.
- Pieve di Sant'Alessandro a Giogoli, in the neighbourhood. Known from 1035, it is in Romanesque style and has a nave with two aisles (the latter, together with the transept, decorated in Baroque style). In the rectory is a fresco by Ridolfo del Ghirlandaio and a canvas by Francesco Conti.
- Pieve di San Vincenzo
- Church of San Martino alla Palma, with a 16th-century portico. The interior, on a single nave, houses a 14th-century Madonna with Child Enthroned.
- Church of Sant'Andrea, at Mosciano, with some 13th-14th century paintings.
Nearby is also the Badia a Settimo.
