If you are searching for a wedding location full of history, this is the perfect wedding venue in Tuscany. Why? I tell you a story…
The first owners of the castle were the Vettori family. The last heir, Maddalena, brought it as a dowry to her wedding with Ludovico Capponi in 1577. The couple restored the castle completely and commissioned Bernardino Poccetti, important manner painter, to fresco the loggia of the court. In this era the castle became a place of passing by painters and poets.
