Vasanello Castle

The thirteenth-century castle stands at the entrance to the ancient village of Vasanello; Orso Orsini in 1285 had the first tower built to defend the territory. He had it for only four years, then passed to other families. In the second half of the fifteenth century it returned to the Orsini family who transformed it into a noble residence, frescoing the coffered ceilings and friezes with heraldic motifs that celebrated their marriages with important families. It passed to the Delle Rovere, the Colonna, the Barberini and for a century to the current owners Misciattelli.
