Five striking event spaces including the circular Grand Ballroom, a large and airy space with its refined frescoes in trompe-l’oeil that seem to break through in all directions the boundaries of the room.

In the “English” park, dating back to the first half of the nineteenth century, you can enjoy all the charm of the Romantic period, the walkways, the abundant spring blooms and the little neo-Gothic temple. The park also preserves an amazing labyrinth of hedges, the second largest in Italy.
