  • Yes, mysterious because it is said that from there starts a long underground tunnel linking it with the above Castracani fortress, where it was rumored that the partisans partisans at the end of the war, they had hidden the weapons, ready for a possible revolution that would unleash in the months after the April ' 45 to bring Italy into the orbit of the Soviet bloc. When I was a child, along with my friends, fantasize about the possibility of finding that "precious" arsenal, but every search proved fruitless, so to suggest us to turn our attentions to the more mysterious woodland of the nearby Villa Ollandini, for other less guarded given that, even in those years, the Citadel was used as a prison County prison with inmates and prison guards. Only in recent decades has been a comprehensive internal recovery, walls and moat that made it accessible to the public as both historical and tourist attraction as a venue for concerts, plays and exhibitions. Definitely a must for visitors to Sarzana, also considered the strategic location and beautiful views of the surrounding homes.

  • Let me start by saying that I was to pay a visit to the fortress on numerous occasions, having the good fortune to live in those parts. But in my opinion, the most impressive occasion, still remains the visit during an antiques Show in August. A corollary of exhibitors "outside" Fortress (and scattered all over the city), goes up to the well known "square" which leads to what is the access to the Castle, and then get into the imaginative world of "antiques", often well represented by illustrious names of the craft and coming from all over Italy. To say that it would be better to have comfortable shoes or otherwise, no high heels, since external flooring involves discomfort in walking, but passed the access tract, it then enters the courtyard where it is conducive to walk calmly. The visit is worth the time that is needed to end it, because the fortress is mostly open to the top floor, which offers a good view of the city and its surroundings. Often along the route is accompanied by art exhibits, (also represented by important international names) and in the evening, on the stage set up in the courtyard, you can attend meetings with the protagonists of the show and/or groups of musicians.
