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.
