HISTORY, STATE AND FINISHES



The castle was built in the early 13th century as a keep defending the city of Siena. The first notable mention of the fortress is in 1313 when the castle was besieged by Henry VIII of Luxemburg, who was, however, unable to conquer it. From that moment, the castle was passed from family to family until the final confrontation between Siena and Florence in 1555. The Spanish forces captured the castle a first time but were quickly driven away. The second and final conquest marked the end of the siege of Siena and the end of the war. From then onward, the castle lost its defensive role and became a luxury countryside manor.

 

Entirely made out of bricks, the castle boasts an imposing look, highlighted by a visible talon, around which, instead of a typical medieval water-trench, is located a hedged garden. A continuous string-course marks the piano nobile (first floor) while the whole perimeter is decorated by a line of trefoil arches. All the openings boast segmental arches, while embrasures dot the walls and make it evident the fortress was a military emplacement. Putlog holes are scattered all around the buildings.

 

From a lancet archway, topped by a machicolation, one can enter the internal quadrangular courtyard, with porticos on three sides and walls supported by octagonal pilasters. From here, a short staircase (masonry) leads to the piano nobile.

The term Castle derives from castellum which, in turn, derives from Castrum, a Latin term that refers to a military settlement. It is, in fact, in Roman times that we find the first elements of castles, architectural structures that become even more important with the advent of the barbarians. These peoples, nomads and mostly devoted to hunting and war, were also particularly ferocious and it was therefore required to fortify the already existing military facilities.

 
With the fall of the Roman Empire and the advent of the Middle Ages the decentralization of power required the creation of different types of fortification. At the beginning the scene was dominated by the watch towers whose purpose was primarily military.
 
The different economic and social structure, typical of the Middle Ages, then, required the creation of fortified towns. The castle became, therefore, the nucleus of a decentralized economy that, from the city, now moved to the countryside. That’s why the castle appeared as real fortified village.

In modern times, with the advent of various forms of fortification, the castle lost its defensive role. The various castles began, therefore, to be converted into residences for noble families.
Currently many of the castles in Italy and Europe are in need of renovation and therefore represent an unique opportunity to give a new life to a piece of history.
 
Owning a castle, live in a castle and, even more, to revive a castle is surely one of the most exciting experiences of life.
