    the legend says that between it’s walls were kept prisoners Gundeberga, daughter of queen Teodolinda, accused to have been unfaithful to her husband (around VII century), and afterwards Adelaide from Borgogna, who refused to marry Berengario, king in Italy in the X century. Another prisoner has been Giovanna Vicedomini, in 1463.

    of course it will be my home!!!
    seriously... someone decided it was a pity to let it fall down, so now the town hall decided to close the place to prevent vandalism or the place to fall down on someone's head. They want to recuperate the place, cause now they think it's historically important. Couldn't they think of it before? it's kind of late now...
