The monumental 17th century residence with more than 1.200 square meters has been brought back to its past splendour after a very accurate restoration work lasting more than 10 years, consequently contributing in increasing the value of its cultural, artistic, botanical, hunting heritage.
Built in the 15th century, received some changes to its original structure in the late 17th century, it was inhabited by different families starting from the Parati’s, Grassi, Ratta,, Dolfi, and De’ Bosdari and from 1977 belongs to the Marzaduri family.

The building is composed of the main body with two 16th century old side towers. To reach the residence it is necessary to walk through a parallel path about “ one thousand steps” Crossing a centuries old park. The main entrance with no arcade in front, is constituted of a large gallery with barrel vaults and frescos representing mythological scenery. On the ground floor we can find an ancient private chapel with stuccoes and an auditorium built in 1777.
