Della Porpora

This large room boasts a beamed ceiling (original of the XVI century), a fireplace and two corner windows looking the side entrance of the S. Maria Assunta Church. It is said that here stayed both Paolo Emilio and Ludovico Zacchia, bishops and then cardinals of Montefiascone (XVI century).

Here stayed quite certainly also Giovanni Battista de Nobili, who obtained the Genoese citizenship in 1528. He then took up a political career and therefore was named “Republic’s Toga”. These people belonging to different ages took care of adorning the village: they commissioned to workers from Carrara splendid polychrome altars for S. Sebastiano Church in Vezzano alto.
