"where time has stopped"
A millennial fortress surrounded by the reliefs of the Emilian Appenine, situated to control the verdant Valtaro, in Parma province.
Early in XX century the defensive building, then transformed into the elegant residence of the noble Landi family, was turned into a boarding school for young girls and finally it became Marchesa Raimondi Gambarotta's permanent address as well as an eclectic house-museum
