Fattoria Spinola was a convent of nuns in the late thirteenth century.
In fact, there is still a private consecrated chapel with frescoes dating back approximately at the beginning of the fourteenth century.
Unfortunately, these frescoes are very damaged, either because they have been discovered by Antonio Spinola (my grandfather) only in the early '900 - at that time this room was used for storage of farm and it was painted white - and because during the 1997 earthquake many pieces of fresco were detached from the ceiling.
We do not have the possibility to restore it because it is quite expensive.
During the post-earthquake restoration, we discovered that the facade of the chapel had been hidden by plaster. In fact, the part of the building next to the Chapel was added at a later time (1600).We decided to leave out the plaster original brick facade with the frame of the original roof (lowest building constructed later).
Around 1700 the Fattoria Spinola became the country house of the noble family Goga (now extinct). You can still see the emblem on the altar of the Chapel and stone at the entrance to my house.
In 1818, the last Cardinal Spinola family (SPINOLA, Hugh Pet(phone number hidden)) was sent to Perugia by Pope and bought about 3,000 acres of homes, land, villas. He was the uncle of my grandfather, that's why his death left him and his brothers all his possessions. My grandfather happened to the Fattoria Spinola with 70 acres of land.

Stay here and you could give this host their first review!
Born in Rome where I lived for 30 years, I decided to leave my job in the City (I worked in a Company that organized the SBK World Championship and many other Motor races), to run the family Estate and to start the activity of Agriturismo.
I left the City to live in Umbria, where I discovered an amazing and wonderful Region and a different, healthtier quality of life.
During the years, my relatives who wanted to rent their properties in BOLOGNA, ROME, LUGANO LAKE and LIGURIA, asked me to give them an help. I AM NOT A TRAVEL AGENT! I just give them an help to receive bookings requests.
