Lake and Prodigies

Culture, History and Food and Wine

Castiglione del Lago stands on the lake, lying on a promontory where stands The Ducal Palace, also known as the Palazzo della Corgna, is in all of Umbria the only small "palace" that still exists and is in excellent condition.Inside it preserves beautiful rooms frescoed by Pomarancio and Salvio Savini, the best being the Sala Maggiore and the Sala del Trono, which are decorated with mythological subjects executed at the request of Marquis Diomede. We also find 24 chairs of the original Corgnesque furnishings and, on the ground floor, still frescoes with the stories of the world upside down and Diana and Callisto, attributed to Salvio Savini.Connected to the Ducal Palace is the Rocca del Leone, reached by a walkway with loopholes on the Trasimeno River that is really exciting. This building has the characteristic triangular shape, it is the result of a series of design revisions starting with that of Frederick II of Swabia and the Marquis Ascanio I.Walking through Castiglione del Lago we notice that there are still the ancient walls that give an evocative atmosphere to the town, we can also go in search of the three gates of access to the city: Perugia, Florence, Siena. Triangular tower, three gates: the number three is going strong around here and it is no accident. The internal urban layout is based on the number three and at the behest of Galeazzo Alessi on studies by Vignola and directions from Ascanio della Corgna.
