Villa Posta Donini in San Martino in Campo
Built between the end of the 500s and the beginning of the 600s, the main floor was renovated in the mid-700s and still retains the classic row of lounges embellished with doors and canvases painted by Nicola Giuli in 1780.
Also on the main floor you can admire the hall created for concerts whose walls are entirely lined with paintings painted by the school of Francesco Appiani.
Dell'Appiani is also a magnificent altarpiece, oil on canvas, located in the eighteenth-century chapel representing San Filippo Neri and the Madonna.
On the ground floor there are five rooms whose ceilings were frescoed in the 1st and 2nd half of the 800th century.
In the two hectares of park, you can admire a mausoleum dedicated to Contessina Laura Donini dating back to the year 1850 and a pigeon house entirely painted with fake wood from the same period; along an avenue there are five Etruscan cinerary urns of the III century BC
Six eighteenth-century terracotta vases are placed in front of the main entrance of the villa.
The history of Villa Posta Donini
The villa was built by the Conti Donini family between the end of the 500s and the beginning of the 600s.
The last descendant Countess of the family lived in the villa until 1964, when the property was sold to a Perugina family.
In 1999, Engineer Ennio Mencaroni purchased the villa and opened it to the public as a classified accommodation facility, Residenza d'Epoca, now bound by the Superintendency of Cultural Heritage.
