This his hilltop location sits on tree-lined summit overlooking the Chiascio valley, which provides the kind of picturesque landscape belowed by Perugino and Piero della Francesca.
The Castle exists already in the year 1073, as we can see from a document.
In 1257 a few feudal subordinates rose against Gubbio and submitted their Castles to Perugia.
On the 7 of May 1257 Ugolino, count of Coccorano submitted the Castle.
On the 24 March of 1384 count Antonio da Montefeltro submitted to Gubbio and became Lord of the city.
Gubbio ends its existence as a free town and was annexed to the Duchy of Urbino and so it will remain for many centuries.
From the severe walls starts one of the most fascinating stories of a man that illuminated the XV° century and the Italian Renaissance.
In 1458 freehold estate were hereditated from Elisabetta, and the feudal titles were given to Ugolino dei Bardi until the 3° generation.
In 1487 Guidobaldo da Montefeltro gave the castle and it's land to Alessandro Reggeri di Canossa. The property stayed with this family 4 generations (after Alessandro, the son Bonifacio, the grandson Orazio, and the great grandson Camilla).
In 1617 Camilla di Canossa, who did not have children, gave it to the Monte di Pietà of Reggio Emilia (a carity istitution).
The 8° of May 1629 the Monte di Pietà sold to the Ugolini family of Gubbio; the price was 6.200 scudi.
In 1909 (the Good Friday) the Castle and all of it's land were bought by the familiy that has still the property.WEDDINGS
