Castle Of Agazzano The Villa

First evidence of the fortress date back to the half of 1200, when Agazzano was the capital city of the Fief of the Scotti, a noble family from Piacenza. Today it is still owned by one of their heirs, princess Luisa Gonzaga Anguissola Scotti.The fortress (12th-15th cent.) is perfectly preserved and represents a mixture of medieval austerity and Renaissance grace.The inner ward, with a loggia made of sandstone little columns, is very suggestive. The castle nearby was restored at the end of the 18th century in the same style of the remains of the ancient borough and still preserves in the interior pictorial decorations and precious frescoes, namely those representing trees in the entrance hall.

The complex of Agazzano comprises a Renaissance hilltop fortress and 18th century castle. The villa was built in the 15th century by the Scotti, a rich merchant family with trading links as far as Genoa, Europe and the East. Today it is still the property of the Gonzaga-Anguissola Scotti family.The hilltop fort has a rectangular plan. Two of the four original towers still remain while the former moat was turned into a garden in the 18th century.
