Palace of Piero
Located in one of the most picturesque parts of Tuscany and surrounded by elm trees, pine forests, vineyards and olive groves, Palazzo di Piero has that special charm of ancient Etruscan sites. At the end of a long tree-lined avenue is the neo-Gothic castle, built in the 19th century on the original medieval residence, with its elegant loggia and bell tower (a reproduction of the tower of Siena’s municipal palace, the Torre del Mangia), the frescoed chapel dating from the 16th century, and so does the inner courtyard.
The Castle complex, together with the farm center, is located in the municipality of Sarteano (6 km), very close to Chianciano Terme (6 km), but the urban center of reference remains Chiusi (9 km), a town rich in archaeological sites, at the center of the ancient Etruscan domains, was a point of trade even before the founding of Rome.
Palazzo di Piero is also an important site because of the many finds of Etruscan artifacts, which, donated by our family, have gone on to enrich the Chiusi Archaeological Museum and have contributed new terms to the Etruscan vocabulary through their inscriptions.
