The Castle of Tor Crescenza
The Castle of Tor Crescenza is located a few steps from Via Flaminia in the Corso Francia area just outside Rome. Completely restored and renovated, the castle has a facade with two classic side towers bordered by the equally classic crenellated edges.
In the center, the drawbridge in perfect medieval style allows access to a cloister, the guesthouse and magnificent noble rooms for receptions and banquets. The interiors are finely and richly furnished with floors and slabs in polished marble, in the rooms there are also famous paintings in tromp d'oeil that tell scenes from the life of the ancient owners.
No less impressive is the exterior of the castle, with avenues that lead to gardens full of fountains, which, thanks to a linear and perfect geometry, recreate evocative water games with the passage between a tank and another.
The history of the Castle of Tor Crescenza
The Castle of Tor Crescenza was built in the fifteenth century by the Marquis Francesco Crescenzi. In the beginning it was only a tower, created in 1100 to protect the city from attacks by enemies and was expanded in the Middle Ages, when the Crescenzi family took possession of the same and the surrounding area.
The complex bears the name of its founders and was called "Castello della Crescenza". It is known, from literary sources, that many artists of painting have worked in the castle, in particular the disciples of Giulio Romano, a painter of the sixteenth century, and those belonging to the current of the Zuccari.
What today has become a location for exclusive events, has been a source of inspiration for works by painters, not only Italians, but also foreigners, including Claude Lorrain, Nicolas Poussin and Jean Baptiste Corot.
