Pier Francesco 'the younger' de` Medici
Born in 1487
Died in August 1525, Cafaggiolo
Married 1511 Maria Soderini, daughter of Tommaso Soderini
 
 

Lorenzo 'il Popolano' and Semiramide Appiani's eldest son, was a man of even less note than his father, Lorenzo the younger. Almost the only thing recorded of him is his active co-operation with his father in the attempt to rob, his cousin, the boy Giovanni, the son of Giovanni "Popolano" and Caterina  Sforza, of his inheritance. Pier Francesco took much interest in the minor arts, especially pottery. From his father he inherited the estate of Cafaggiolo and there he founded the Cafaggiolo manufactory which soon became famous, the Cafaggiolo-ware being considered to surpass even that of Faenza. He married Maria Soderini in 1511, and was the father of  Lorenzino, Giuliano, Maddalena, and Laudomia. Pier Francesco died while his son Lorenzino was still a boy.
