Starting from the second half of the nineteenth century, the Rifredi area, essentially rural, underwent profound transformations. One of which was the construction of the Florence-Pistoia railway (1860), its connection with the line for Pisa and the construction of the Rifredi station of (1889). This changed the role and importance of the existing road network and brought big industrial activities such as Officine Galileo, Manetti and Roberts, the Military Pharmaceutical Chemical Institute to the area.
In the second half of the twentieth century these productive activities were replaced by residential settlements comprising public housing and multi-storey condominium complexes with the consequent progressive increase in population. Rifredi today is a very lively district with its own railway station (in addition to S. Maria Novella and Campo di Marte, it also manages national and not just local trains), a theater, a sports association (Rifredi 2000), and the Careggi Hospital-University, one of the most important in Italy. There is also the University of Florence departments of Engineering, Biology, Mathematics and Medicine. The key point of the area is Piazza Dalmazia, called a "natural shopping center" due to the large number of artisan shops it houses.
