  • A defensive structure, indeed, a place to develop their knowledge in fact, a place where redemption or maybe a mix of it all wrapped up in a castle full of esoteric symbols and references. A mysterious and fascinating place to see and study in depth, a place where the past is certainly still present.

  • Nicknamed Turtle because top view the shape recalls the animal, you must give credit to the volunteers of the Pro Loco for the commitment with which to guide the visitors in the giro della Rocca providing explanations from knowledgeable guide, in my case Mirco told me something that perhaps not everyone knows: Raffaello Sanzio lost parents as a child and her guardian was an almost unknown painter , Evangelist from Piandimeleto, who began to art the future great artist, within the fortress that being small is completed in just over half an hour, you'll also see the study of Monsignor Boats with racks full of original volumes

  • This is a unique place. Not rare, unique. Not only very welcome destination for history lovers, but also for lovers of architecture, art and even ideal for those seeking a destination esoteric. A dip in the former glory of the Duchy of Urbino, this means visiting the fortress of Sassocorvaro. The architect, the brilliant Francesco di Giorgio Martini, found himself immediately in her hands bad cats to skin to satisfy the two clients. On one side was Federico da Montefeltro who wanted a powerful fortress to use as "spot" for his fearsome Legion Feltria, a fortress that was-as dictated to the canons of the time-even stately home. The other Ottaviano degli Ubaldini, philosopher and Alchemist, who insisted to endow the stronghold of countless esoteric items. Came out a turtle-shaped structure (symbol of strength and durability), the first capable of opposing adequate resistance to firearms. After its creator noticed however that the curved shapes of the fortress, useful Yes to minimize damage from shells did not allow good visibility and were counter-productive for the defense. The fortress took its revenge centuries later, when inside they were crammed countless masterpieces of art, hidden and lost to Nazi destruction. Obviously, in a place so rich in charm could not miss the Ghost: Yes, rest assured, there is too.
