The history of the Florentine T-bone steak is as old at least as the city it is named after and the origins of which are lost in the depths of time. However, its tradition, fame and its name can be dated back to the celebration of the festival held in honour of St. Lawrence and the Medici family. On this occasion held on 10th August, the city was illuminated by the light coming from large bonfires, on which a great amount of veal was roasted and then served to the local population.
