THE PALAZZO

Duchi di Gallese

Located in the ancient Faliscan territory of upper Lazio, the ancient fortress of Gallese has been a coveted possession of the most important Roman noble families since the Middle Ages.

Renovated in the Renaissance by Pope Alexander VI, the castle then became the property of the Altemps family who transformed it into the current palace. The majestic staircase, designed by Vignola, leads to the loggia and to the internal halls with an important collection of ancient marble and plaster.

In the nineteenth century the palace passed into the hands of the Hardouin family of Gallese who still own it today.

IL PALAGIO

WINE PARTNER

Proprietà e residenza del celebre cantante Sting e di sua moglie Trudie Styler, la Tenuta Il Palagio è fin dal 1500 una vera oasi di pace tra le dolci colline toscane del Chianti. Oltre alla Villa, La Tenuta ospita un’importante azienda agricola che insieme a prodotti come l’olio e il miele, continua la tradizione plurisecolare della viticoltura. Dal 2000 sono stati reimpiantati 11 ettari di vigneti che seguono i metodi dell’agricoltura biologica e che danno origine a vini pregiati i cui nomi si ispirano all’universo rock dell’artista inglese.

Domus Artium is a project dedicated to excellence in the arts and to the recovery of the tradition of families who open the doors of their homes and historic buildings to concerts, exhibitions and convivial moments.
