Built where an ancient fortress once stood, of which we have news as early as the end of the 13th century, it was then inhabited by about 500 people. In 1390 it was occupied by the Raspanti Perugini and in 1501 it depended on Porta Eburnea (or Arco della Mandorla, Perugia countryside). In the 19th century it became the property of Lemmo Rossi Scotti, count of Montepetriolo, one of the greatest 19th-century battle painters, to whom we owe the transformation into a residential complex during the second half of the 19th century, when the monumental “Limonaia” was also built. with a neo-Gothic taste identifiable in the overlaps, in the numerous battlements that decorate the complex and in the landscape layout of the park.
