HISTORY OF THE BUILDING

In 217 B.C. a battle between the Romans and the Carthaginians took place in the vicinity of Passignano sul Trasimeno, it was one of the most important battles of the Second Punic War.
This area has always been strictly connected to Perugia and had a strategic importance, since it is located among Lake Trasimeno, the Upper Tiber Valley and the Val di Chiana.
Passignano in the 11th century belonged partially to some monks and partially to a noble family, then it was plundered by the Florentine army and later it was annexed to the States of the Church.

 

 

DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS

The property is made up of the tower and the ruin of the castle, for a total surface area of 534 square metres.
The sandstone quadrangular tower has pointed windows and is laid out on six levels. In the tower there are pigeonholes, which were used to catch birds, and on the top of it there are brick brackets.

RECENTLY ADDED

The term Castle derives from castellum which, in turn, derives from Castrum, a Latin term that refers to a military settlement. It is, in fact, in Roman times that we find the first elements of castles, architectural structures that become even more important with the advent of the barbarians. These peoples, nomads and mostly devoted to hunting and war, were also particularly ferocious and it was therefore required to fortify the already existing military facilities.

 
With the fall of the Roman Empire and the advent of the Middle Ages the decentralization of power required the creation of different types of fortification. At the beginning the scene was dominated by the watch towers whose purpose was primarily military.
 
The different economic and social structure, typical of the Middle Ages, then, required the creation of fortified towns. The castle became, therefore, the nucleus of a decentralized economy that, from the city, now moved to the countryside. That’s why the castle appeared as real fortified village.

In modern times, with the advent of various forms of fortification, the castle lost its defensive role. The various castles began, therefore, to be converted into residences for noble families.
Currently many of the castles in Italy and Europe are in need of renovation and therefore represent an unique opportunity to give a new life to a piece of history.
 
Owning a castle, live in a castle and, even more, to revive a castle is surely one of the most exciting experiences of life.
