Villa Sommi Picenardi

Villa Sommi Picenardi in Torre De’ Picenardi was built in the late eighteenth century through the transformation of the ancient local castle by the brothers Picenardi. This architectural complex is surrounded by a moat and enriched by elegant interiors. At the back of the house, part of the extensive landscaped gardens can still be visited, and feature a scenic route passing classical temples, ruins and lakes. Also the so-called Villino (Cottage) is worth a visit. This was formerly part of the main garden and used as a coffee-house, and is now separated from the main complex and surrounded by a beautifully kept garden.
