 BRACCIANO

  

BUILT BY THE ORSINI FAMILY BY THE END OF THE 15TH CENTURY, THE CASTLE LOOKS OUTSIDE LIKE AN IMPREGNABLE FORTRESS REFINED BY THE HANGING GARDENS FROM WHERE YOU CAN ENJOY UNIQUE VIEWS, WHERE THE INTENSE SMELLS FROM THE LAKE MELT WITH THE SURROUNDING NATURE, GIVING AS A RESULT A PICTURE OF A RARE BEAUTY.

 

INSIDE, THE LARGE RECEPTION HALLS PRESERVE LIVELY DECORATIONS BY PAINTER ANTONIAZZO ROMANO, PRECIOUS FRESCOES BY THE ZUCCARI BROTHERS, FAMILY PORTRAYS THAT TELL THE STORY OF THE NOBLE ORSINI FAMILY - RULERS AND LORDS OF BRACCIANO - AND THE STORY OF THEIR GUESTS, POPES, KINGS AND INTELLECTUALS OF THAT TIMES, WHO WHERE INVITED THERE TO SHARE THE SPLENDOUR OF THE CASTLE, FROM POPE SIXTUS IV DELLA ROVERE TO CHRISTINA, QUEEN OF SWEEDEN.

 

A NEW ERA BEGAN FOR THE CASTLE BY LATE 19TH CENTURY, WHEN PRINCE BALDASSARRE III - PROMOTOR OF AN ACCURATE RESTORATION - STARTED TURNING THE CASTLE INTO A MUSEUM, ENHANCING IT WITH WONDERFUL PERIOD FURNITURE AND PRESTIGIOUS COLLECTIONS, LIKE THE COLLECTION OF OLD WEAPONS.


TODAY THE CASLTE IS MANAGED BY THE OWNER MARIA DELLA PACE ODESCALCHI AND IT OFFERS TOURIST AND EDUCATIONAL SERVICES TO VISITORS. THE CASTLE CAN ALSO HOLD EVENTS, CEREMONIES AND CONVENTIONS.

SANTA SEVERA

 

THE CASTLE RISES OVER THE PLACE OF PYRGI, THE PORT CITY LINKED TO THE ANTICIENT CAERE, CURRENT CERVETERI FOUNDED BETWEEN THE END OF THE SEVENTH AND BEGINNING OF THE SIXTH CENTURY BC. THE ETRUSCAN CITY OF PYRGI EXTENDED ALL AROUND THE PORT FOR ABOUT 10 HECTARES, INCLUDING, BESIDES THE AREA OCCUPIED BY THE CASTELLAN DISTRICT, ALSO THE AREA OF THE SANCTUARY LOCATED AT THE SOUTH END, SUBJECT TO EXCAVATING BY THE INSTITUTE OF ETRUSCOLOGY OF THE UNIVERSITÀ LA SAPIENZA OF ROME, FOR OVER FIFTY YEARS NOW.

OVER THE THIRD CENTURY BC, WITH THE ROMANIZATION OF THE COAST AREA, OVER THE ETRUSCAN BUILT-UP AREA WAS FOUNDED THE CASTRUM ROMANO OF PYRGI, SURROUNDED BY STRONG POLYGONAL-SHAPE WALLS. THE PLACE WAS PROBABLY INHABITED NON STOP UNTIL LATE ANTIQUITY (FORTH-FIFTH CENTURY BC) AND IT WAS EXACTLY THANKS TO THE CONTINUTY OF LIFE OVER THE REMAINS OF THE CASTRUM THAT IN MEDIEVAL TIMES, THE VILLAGE KNOWN AS CASTELLUM SANCTAE SEVERAE WAS FORMED.
THE ACTUAL CASTLE WAS BUILT IN THE FOURTEENTH CENTURY AND THE VILLAGE WAS FORMED GRADUALLY IN DIFFERENT BUILDING STAGES OVER THE FIFTEENTH AND SIXTEENTH CENTURIES.
OVER THE CENTURIES, THE OWNERSHIP OF THE CASTLE HAS GONE THROUGH MANY OWNERS UNTIL 1482, WHEN IT WAS TRANSFERED TO THE ORDER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND REMAINED THEIRS FOR WELL FIVE HUNDRED YEARS UNTIL 1980. BETWEEN THE SIXTEENTH AND SEVENTEENTH CENTURY, IT WAS ALSO A PLACE WHERE MANY POPES RESTED AND STAYED, FOR EXAMPLE: GREGORY XIII, SIXTUS V AND URBAN VIII. AFTER A PERIOD OF GREAT SPLENDOUR REACHED EXACTLY IN THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY, THE CASTLE HAS EXPERIENCED A LONG AND SLOW DECAY. IN 1943 IT WAS USED BY GERMANS AS A STRATEGIC MILITARY EMPLACEMENT. TODAY, THE OWNERSHIP OF THE MONUMENTAL COMPLEX BELONGS TO THE LAZIO REGION, THAT HAS TRUSTED SANTA MARINELLA TOWN COUNCIL TO MANAGE IT.
