Villa Dosi Delfini: walking with the marquis

Cultural walks in fortresses and manors and, as an "ambassador", descendants of ancient families who personally guide visitors through the maze of history, the secrets and the curiosities of their "houses". A dream that becomes reality by visiting the castles of the Duchy of Parma, Piacenza and Pontremoli who have joined the initiative and among the nobles who have given their availability there are, for example, the patron who brought the manor back to its ancient splendor thanks an important restyling, or the collector fond of ancient weapons, works of art, books and missals, or even ancient sacred vestments. A chance for visitors to stroll through the history of villas and palaces with an exceptional interlocutor, narrator of a distant era to live in the present. In the booklet of these locations is listed Villa Dosi Delfini of Pontremoli - in the province of Massa Carrara -, to be visited in the company of a guide and its owner, the Marquis Nicolò Dosi Delfini. A path that winds through the rooms of the house and along the events that led to the rise of the Dosi family in Pontremoli, from the design to the construction of the villa called "dei Chiosi", to its restoration after the nineteenth-century abandonment and damage suffered during the last world conflict. An exciting story, full of curiosities and anecdotes that only those who have lived in the first person - or his ancestors - in this house can pass down with great detail.
