Among lush green hills, surrounded by small villages and hazelnut groves we find the Small Castle.
The history of the castle is an ancient and eventful one.
Just as the history of his country is linked to his Small Castle.
We are around 1300, and in Italy the war between Guelphs and Ghibellines was raging.
During the civil strife, the Small Castle was an anti-Guelph stronghold.
In fact, at the beginning this fortified castle with a watchtower had a defensive function against invaders.
Its size originally had nothing to do with the current ones, it was in fact much smaller.
A bloody battle in 1312 led to its complete destruction.
