About the property

And 'one of the six houses Ancient Houses of Terziere; an old building so named because from the fifteenth century, and for over three centuries, formed the chambers of the Florentine garrison, and the lily, as it is known, is the symbol of Florence. The house is leaning against the wall of the soprano village, ancient wall, restored in the second half of the fifteenth century by order of Lorenzo de 'Medici.

Next to the house there is the fifteenth-century gateway to the village. The current windows of the building were originally loopholes, which were enlarged in the seventeenth century to give more light to the rooms. Four hundred of the original are also the wooden ceilings, and those in turn. The fireplace, sixteenth, of stone, decorated with carved lilies, and the same flower is found in the ancient walled pottery near the floor of the bedroom. The lily is the recurring motif in furnishing the house, even in the embroidery of curtains on the windows.

Elegant and discreet, the house is furnished with antique furniture: the small dresser, a table and chairs in the living room, the 'goats' of a double bed and the small seventeenth-century wardrobe with four doors, in the bedroom. From the bedroom you access a closet, and the toilet (with shower). In the living room, a comfortable sofa bed can be used in case of emergency serves a comfortable bed more.

The antique prints hanging on the walls are original and represent location or views of the Lunigiana. There is also an ancient engraving depicting a crucified Christ painted on wood, a seventeenth-century manuscript table of exchange rates of the currencies, the portrait of the poet Giovanni Fantoni, the portrait of Leopold II, the last Grand Duke of Tuscany.

La Casa del Giglio breathes the cultural environment of the castle, and is an integral part as guest quarters for Italian and foreign scholars, and tourists interested in secular culture of Lunigiana. In the castle one another commented exhibition of antique books, thanks to the possibilities that offers the important library, we talk about history, art, poetry, and especially how not to lose, or how to recover, the sense of identity, and of belonging.
