The Billiard Room

The first room added to the original nucleus it dated from 1850. It was a stall with its hayloft above. Today the characteristic vaulted ceiling and arched lintel together with the uncovered ceiling enables us to see the original structure. It lets ussee exactly how the stalls were, with the salt holders on the walls (which the cows licked), the iron stairs which led up to the hayloft (at the end of the room on the right).

On his sides there is a small very originalbar. The real entry is on the superior part where it has been extracted a small rest room for the exclusive use of the Billiard Room. The access overlooks on the small south-facing portico toward the hayloft and the kitchen.


The Well Room

During a maintenance operation, an antique stone well was discovered under the south facing portico.

In a wonderful state of conservation, drinking water is still collected in it also today. The well, that is still visible, is protected by a thick plate where you can stand on .
The room has been created by the partial closure of the portico. It is illuminated for all the year by the big glass- wall which overlooks to farmyard and a crackling fireplace warms up the atmosphere.
At one side of this room is the Saint Anthony Room (Sala Sant'Antonio), it is possible to distinguish the original superior part, that was made for harvesting hay.


The Saint Anthony Room

At the beginning of the 20th century a stall was added to the west side of the original 15th century tavern.

In the stall some traces of an affresco dedicated to Saint Antony, protector of farmyard animals. This room, above which is another hayloft, whose steps are clearly separated, was built with second hand materials and its asymmetry is very evident, iron girder, stones columns and only one capital remaining.
To one side is the Park Tavern (Taverna Del Parco) and on the other the Well Room (Sala Del Pozzo).


The Fire Tavern

This room is part of the original building which  is  dated back to 1400.

In 1850, an opening  was created on the east side  (This passage allows you to get to the other rooms from the entry).
At the end of this small tavern is the original stone fireplace, which is lighted on in the cold winter evenings. The fireplace is framed by 2 small windows.
At the front of the room there is a window and a door which gives onto the farmyard. To one side of the room is another barrel vaulted room which is very well preserved (Park Tavern, "La Taverna del Parco") and to the other side is the entrance to the restaurant.


The Park Tavern

This room is part of the original building which is dated back to 1400.

At the beginning of the 20th century, a stall was added to the west side of this room.
One detail still very visible is the pile-up intervention in bricks to sustain the barrel vault after inserting a new opening to the stalls. At the bottom of the room there is a glass door which overlook  to the park and it is framed by two small windows. At the other end of the room is a large horizontal window which gives onto the farmyard.
To one side of the room is the first barrel vaulted room (The Fire Tavern, "La Taverna del Fuoco") and the large room (Saint Anthony Room "La Sala di S. Antonio").


The Hayloft

Around 1890 the large hayloft was built just south of the two main buildings (made up of the Taverna Del Fuoco and the Taverna Del Parco). The top floor was used for harvesting hay and grain (“Vineria”) and its lower floor was used  as a warehouse for carts and agricultural tools.

In front there is a large window which is north facing and it overlooks to the farmyard and the entrance of the Cascina. On both sides, panoramic views and vineyards.


The Wine Room

This is the topside of the hayloft built in 1890 to the south of the main building.

It was used to harvesting over hay and grain and the lower floor was used as a warehouse of carts and agricultural tools.

A ledge gives onto the lower floor (the Hayloft, "Il Fienile") and the large windows are south facing towards Solferino. A lovely north-oriented terrace fascinates the look and it seems to you that you dominate the surrounding vineyards.
