Since 1993,after a careful renovation, it has been opened only for tours, because of a fire that took place in the same year. This rebuilding was made very carefully considering the original characteristic of the structure, observing the peculiar features of the original style and of the materials used. The moderately sized residence owns the tipical thatched roof and the outdoor plaster made with red clay after the last renovation in 1998, even tought the original one was pink, for this reason it is now called Casone Rosso (“Red Casone”).

The casone is surrounded by a particular garden, in which they placed some benches and other tipical rural and country life […]
