Villa Pagnoncelli Folcieri

Seventeenth-century villa with a medieval corner tower. On the main floor (the only one that can be visited) on the central portico there is the library on one side, and a large hall with adjoining smaller rooms. The rooms are all decorated with frescoes of the '700, with a mythological and allegorical theme, enriched in part with family furnishings, in part with objects purchased over time. An English garden welcomes the visitor, while a large green space opens on the back. It retains its Italian-style layout, with spaces marked by box hedges, and today it is used by the family as a vegetable garden and orchard.
