The history of Villa Dragoni
Villa Dragoni Florio is located in the hills of Buttrio, and is dated late 1500 beginning 1600. This is testified by the fresco on the wall of the first-floor loggia of the west tower, which depicts hunting scenes still to be attributed, but which by technique and by subject can be traced back to the end of the 1500.
The building was owned by the Bertolini family who made it possible to create frescoes by Chiarottini, Canal and Morelli school, between 1786 and 1803; all Friulian painters of remarkable quality.
Marina Danieli bought the complex and the vineyard in the 1985, and in the 1988 started the restoration works. All the structural interventions have been chosen with maximum respect for the building and its integrity, trying, where possible, to recover and restore all the existing material. The restoration of the frescoes took three years of painstaking work, as during the Second World War the house was the first seat of the German troops, who, according to the witnesses, paid close attention to the works. Later it was occupied by the Americans, who not only covered all the frescoes with white paint, but also made red paint and used the walls for the game of darts.
