Sarzano Castle

The castle is only 3km away from Villa Villacolle.

“The first attestation of the Sarzano castle in documents dates back to 958 AD, when Atto Adalberto, progenitor of the Countess Matilde, bought it together with his farm.”

It is one of the most elegant and best preserved fortresses in the Emilian Apennines […] it appears stupendously picturesque, nor do the old possessions of Countess Matilde have perhaps a more artistic castle” (wikipedia)

Current note: the last Marquis of Sarzano was Sir Christopher Frank Carandini Lee, the actor who played Dracula, Saruman and others.
