A staircase leads to the first floor of a building that belonged to the family De Viti De Marco, the lords of the town as well as of the Casamassella Castle, once a medieval fortress, transformed into a noble residence.

The house was in poor condition, broken up into apartments, but Roberto and his wife Irene were able to restore it, without distorting it, preserving “as much as possible.”

The old Filanda has maintained its original features: the façade made of stone, tall ceilings and windows, flat roofs with steel beams, intermediate vaults in tuff.

The hosts have turned it into a warm and elegant place. An oasis of peace, overlooking the terraces and the interior garden, where there are six rooms for guests and, on the ground floor, Roberto and Irene’s place, with the architectural atelier of Roberto, the ideal place for planning, full of history, crossroad of encounters, where work and private life are completed.


My grandmother Chiara has worked here in the mill until 1924: there were white mulberry trees and she fed the silkworms.
My mother Maria too, who was a master weaver, has worked nine years in these rooms, which in 1962 have been transformed into the workshop with antique looms.

Roberto"The dream of an entire life came true. Stone after stone, room after room,I gained back the paths of my childhood.”
