Villa Redentore

This villa was constructed in the mid-19th-century in an elegant neoclassical style. It has an interesting history serving many different purposes. At the beginning of the 20th-century, the building was transferred to the local seminary which transformed it into a summer residence for clerics.

During the First World War, it temporarily hosted the clerics from the nearby seminary because their monastery was used as a military hospital. A few decades later the villa was converted into a silk spinning mill, employing a large number of female workers.

The villa also holds a mystery. Some inhabitants of the village say that it served as a secret residence for Mussolini after his days in prison. However, this has never been proven.

Villa Redentore
Around the time the Second World War took place, parts of the villa were used to host schools. Eventually being transformed into a summer colony for children. Inside there are many objects that refer to this time period. Somewhere around the beginning of the 21st-century the building got vacant and has been abandoned ever since.
