  • For me that I was born and raised at his side is the Rocca di Sassocorvaro. Definitely a place unique, designed x resist shots of bombs and then repudiated by its designer. La Rocca was the star of the bailout of major works of art of our country during World War II, but in addition to its story goes visited x beautiful architecture. The hotel's roof garden with the special paving, the spiral staircase that door upstairs and within which there is a well x rainwater harvesting, the enchanting wooden theater. I know that I speak with my heart but this fortress deserves a visit x let soak in its environment and its history.

  • What do the famous biblical Patriarch with his Ark with this beautiful, massive fortress is easily understood. If Noah had the merit of having saved from the flood a pair of every animal species, this mighty tortoise shaped fortification during the second world war it served as a shelter for over 10000 important artworks, including the famous "Storm" by Giorgione, which in its basement were saved from certain destruction. The Rocca Ubaldinesca, of extraordinary importance, belongs to the so-called "transition period" in which we move from medieval fortresses to those typical of the Renaissance. It can be considered an experimental prototype, the first attempt made to withstand the destructive effects of the new weapon: the bomb. It is in my humble opinion a unique masterpiece that meets these requirements with its overly round, the tall escarpments, the typical plant "turtle" whose armour expresses symbolically the character of resistance. For its uniqueness and for the purity of its forms is considered one of the greatest masterpieces of Renaissance architecture. Outside looks like a sturdy and compact mass of stone and brick, sinuous and strongly Escarpment. Four towers protrude along the long sides and joined to each other with short stretches of cortina. On the inlet side you can also admire a minor tower and across a faired strut. Within the courtyard of honour is presented with an arcade on two sides. From here you can access through a characteristic spiral staircase to the apartment of the Lord where you can admire the beautiful fireplaces, ornate shelves, the emblems on the doors and the circular walkway. In particular should mention the presence of a quaint little theatre, housed in what was once the largest exhibition of the fortress with a balcony and central stage, all richly decorated in 1895 by local painter Henry Mancini with neo-classical taste. No doubt about it, a really unusual structure within a fortress! Of particular interest inside the fortress is the art gallery that has important works from the fourteenth to the seventeenth century. And if today, full of curiosity we wander far and wide for the museums of the peninsula and we'll fill your eyes with the finest works of art of the Italian genius, we owe this huge stone turtle with its enormous carapace has preserved the beauty from destruction and barbarity. And if I may I would like to quote in Dostoevsky idiot: "beauty will save the world."

  • What most strikes, visiting the fortress is your tortoise, very unique and interesting. A very nice guide takes visitors inside the rooms, after climbing a stone staircase in spiral structure. The whole structure, both internally and externally and well kept and taken care of. At the end you can also visit the underground, where it is said that mold esoteric secret meetings were held. Importantly, during the second world war, as it was used to collect, hide and protect, thousands of works of art.
