Neighborhood

Our farmhouse “Casa Turchetti” is located in the green Lunigiana, in High Tuscany, in the very old village of Cattognano along the ancient medieval route “via Francigena”.

Green Lunigiana - rich of history and beautiful landscapes – was always a borderland halfway among Tuscany, Liguria and Emilia, where wild nature has survived and where landscape is dotted with beautiful ancient villages and one hundred of impressive medieval castles.

Lunigiana valleys therefore are a habitat in which Nature and History cross each other in exceptional harmony, and where the presence of man, far from spoiling the scenery, left rich artistic evidences.
Our Farmhouse fits inside this landscape context, 500 meters above sea level and 30 Km from the Tyrrhenian Sea, close to “Alps Apuane” and to the “Parco Naturale dei Cento Laghi” (One-Hundred Lakes Natural Park).

The great house is an ancient mansion built by our ancestors since the half of 17th century and to the beginning of 19th century, today completely restored with every modern comfort but maintaining in the structure all the charm of an ancient historical building.

The Great House - where our farmhouse is set - was built as from the 15th century over the remains of a preceding medieval castle.
Still today in fact the house area is reminded as “the Cattognano Castle” in several maps.
During the 17th century all the present ground floor was completed: over the valley door (“Horse Apartment”) the date 1635 is engraved.
During the 18th century the adjoined Oratory was built up, and it was consecrated in the year 1720. Today the Oratory is subject to conservative obligation by the Italian Art Ministry (“Belle Arti”).
At the beginning of the 19th century all the present first floor was built up: over the green door of the main entrance the date 1804 is engraved.
At the beginning of the 20th century the second floor was completed too.

The Turchetti family was involved in the historical events of Lunigiana as from 1700: it is reminded that Turchettis leaded a conspiracy organized by the minor nobles against the Malaspina overlords excessive power.

Furthermore several documents still in family possession give evidence of the Turchetti important personages in the civil events in the municipalities of Fivizzano and Tavernelle in Lunigiana.

At last, during the Second World War family gave hospitality, in the great Cattognano house, to escaping people of both the forces.

Today the great house is owned by family Radaelli, direct descendant from family Turchetti.
