A charming noble manour in Amelia

photo Palazzo Farrattini Palazzo Farrattini, which is still today the property of the family, has preserved intact its character as a dynastic residence. It rises from inside the medieval district of Amelia, a small Umbrian town that retains the charm of a place from a far distant time.

The impressive and imposing fašade of Sangallo's palazzo stands amongst picturesque alleys dotted with artisans workshops, stores, and traditional restaurants. Stepping through the doorway and crossing the atrium, one looks out onto the garden and the olive groves that extend over an area of 10,000 square meters until they reach the polygonal wall, offering an unparalleled view of the Amerina countryside. The original Renaissance floors display five centuries of history.

The extraordinary grand staircase leads to the piano nobile, where one can admire two chestnut wood-paneled ceiling of incredible solemnity and power. The Salon of Sangallo, with its pictorial cornice frieze, was completed for the marriage to Plantilla Pojani, which would bring as a dowry the fiefdom of Piediluco and the name which ever since has flanked that of the Farrattini Counts by papal dispensation. The lower section of the beautiful hearth is attributed to the same Sangallo, while the upper section was designed by Scalzi, the author of the funerary monument in the Farrattini Chapel in the Cathedral of Amelia.

The piano nobile is composed of six other rooms including that of the Emperors, decorated with neoclassical grotesques painted on fabric; that of the Cardinal, covered with an antique cloth of rose damask and boasting a rare chandelier of the seventeenth century; and the room dedicated to Catherine de'Medici, in memory of the role played by Bartolomeo II in the marriage between the niece of Pope Clement VII and Henry II, future king of France.
