Track Infos from gdecarli.it :

Circuit open probably in 1957; on April 24th-25th 1983 it was reopened after it was completely changed by Architetto Passeri. In 1986 it hosted kart Italian Championship, won by Zanardi. Aerial photo taken in 1999 shows a slighly different layout, but I don’t know when it was changed. This circuit was closed several years ago, but I don’t know exact date. In June 2013 there are rumors about a reopening of the circuit in September 2013.

Description by Lorenzo Tommasi (October 2004) and by Luca from Empoli (February and March 2005); translation is mine :

New Marcignana circuit was opened in 1999, but in 2000 was closed because of the usual problems about noise. It is close to the old one, and still today is in a good state, closed in a private estate. This circuit was opened in 1957 and the last race was held on June 16th 2000. In 2001 Tuscany Championship of car models was held on the new circuit.

The track is in via Lucchese between no. 209 and 211, on Marcignana road and it’s abandoned. I hardly found it, becase there are no more signs. It is close to a factory recently build, so it can’t be lengthened. Tarmac is in quite good conditions (of course talking about an abandoned track), so I can presume it was used up to 1999-2000, even if I don’t know exactly when it was abandoned. There are signs of degradation, high grass is everywhere. Pits buildings and ticket office are still there. Near to 180° hairpins somebody is cultivating artichokes. Start/finish line is on the longest straight. IMHO, this track is not bad and it could be an attracting point, as the only kart track in this area is at Ampugnano (that is quite far from) and repairing jobs would not be so hard, but installalling some sound absorbent walls. Moreover, this track is very close to Florence – Pisa – Leghorn main road, so it’s very easy to go there.
