LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT

The graceful fortress, one of the most significant and best preserved example of fifteenth-century Italian castle architecture, witnessed a great love story.

 

The castle, built by Pier Maria Rossi between 1448 and 1462, tells the delicate love story between the noble and powerful Pier Maria and the sweet Bianca Pellegrino Arluno, who left the refined court of Milan to follow him in the Parma lands. The fortress, standing guard over the once vast feudal territory of the valley, has remained almost unchanged through the ages, and still today its majestic and distinctive outline dominate on the
Langhirano hills. Inside, the most famous of the many frescoed rooms is the “Camera d’oro” (the Golden chamber) where Bianca is represented, dressed like a wandering pilgrim.
The painting, executed with great attention to details, even in showing all Rossi’s estates, are a tribute to their love and to the power of the noble knight.
