Villa Marazzi is a splendid 16th century residence located in the historic village of Palazzo Pignano. Characterized by an imposing tower located in the main courtyard, the villa offers large frescoed rooms inside, which infuse it with a noble and romantic atmosphere. Outside a large park with ancient plants is embellished by a large one Swimmingpool.
The architectural complex consists of an ancient tower and two large courtyards: one agricultural surrounded by rustic buildings, the other of honor with the villa itself.
The oldest building is the tower, whose base dates back to the early 1400s. It was almost certainly a defensive structure guarding the lordship of Crema.
The villa dates back to the 1520th century and was built as a holiday home by Sermone Vimercati who, by marrying Ippolita Sanseverino, gave rise to the noble Vimercati Sanseverino family (around XNUMX). Over the centuries, the villa and its tower were remodeled and embellished several times, while always retaining the original layout.
