Walfrid, or Galfrido della Gherardesca, is an eighth-century saint from Pisa. Though he had six children with his long-time wife, Thesia, he and Thesia chose to enter the religious life. He was one of the founders of the Abbey of Palazzuolo on Monte Verde; his wife and one of his daughters took the veil in a convent built nearby. His favorite son, Gimfrid, caused Walfrid a great deal of trouble when he ran away from the monastery. Caught and permanently injured in his right hand, a penitent Gimfrid was brought back to the monastery, which he presided over after Walfrid's death.
