Villa San Giuseppe

Villa Guarnieri was realised on an eighteenth-century structure, and it acquired its current architectural characteristics in the second half of the 1800s. Dating back to this time period are the decorated front, characterized by the effigies of Giuseppe Mazzini, Giuseppe Garibaldi and Hiram Abif, the architect of King Solomon's temple and an important figure in the Masonic tradition.


The characteristics of the front highlight the family's desire to demonstrate its political orientation.


The complex is completed by the romantic Tower and the old stables which house the farmhouse accommodation.


During the two World Wars the Villa was used as headquarter for Austrian and German military forces.


Part of the complex is also the Castaldo House and, on top of the hill, three rural buildings. One of these is a former stable now converted to a winery.
