I visited the stately villa in the eastern center of Italy this summer. The access was quite easy, you just had to crawl between the gate, which lacked a metal bar. The chapel with family crypt is located in a separate building, which gradually become overgrown from the outside. I was told that the property would still be used by a gardener. Fortunately, nobody was there during our visit. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17
I found this villa in the middle of nowhere in Italy. I hardly know anything about the history. A calendar on the wall shows the year 1998. At this time the property was probably abandoned. The owner of the large villa with elaborate furniture was certainly not poor. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26
Discovered while searching on Google Earth. A larger property with several buildings and holey roofs, set off the beaten track. So of course I had to go there and check it ... Decades ago it was apparently started with the renovation, which eventually came to a standstill again. The buildings were partly surrounded by overgrown scaffolding, but unfortunately completely stripped. Inside there was a large fireplace and a room with wall and ceiling paintings, that could only be accessed via one of the scaffolding. The upper floors of the partly overgrown, ruinous gate tower, whose staircase has probably caved in ages ago, were no longer accessible. On the net, I could found the information that the palazzo was originally from the first half of the 17th century. With the death of Count von M., the noble family of the builder family died out at the end of the 19th century. Most recently, the property (at this time owned by a monastery) was used as a wine store at the beginning of the 20th century. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16
