A marvelous castle full of delightful rooms, the perfect location for a couple who dream of a fabulous wedding. It is the location where, every year, we participate in the trade fair of weddings, a small local event devoted to weddings.

The castle has an interesting history. It was built by Cesare Mattei in 1850 and he gave it the name of “Rocchetta”. He devoted almost his entire life to the study of empirical medical science and, at his death, his heirs continued to produce and distribute the “Mattei Remedies.”

After various attempts to sell Rocchetta castle to the municipality of Bologna, it was finally sold to a local tradesman, Primo Stefanelli, known as “Il Mercantone” . He added a number of new elements such as dungeons, a razor well, etc., and operated it as an attraction until it was eventually closed due to problems of stability and safety.

In 2005, the Cassa di Risparmio Foundation of Bologna acquired the castle and, after a thorough restoration project study, undertook its consolidation and a faithful reconstruction that is now about 2/3 complete.

It is now one of the most important locations for ceremonies and events in the Tusco-Emilian Apennines.
