History · Life at Castello di Montegiove

Castle historian

Library 1 castello di Montegiove

Here at Castello di Montegiove we have our own historian Luca Montecchi. Luca comes once in a while and goes through our library and archives in search for all kinds of interesting old stuff. For some times he has been looking for a receipt and correspondence related to an old family portrait from around 1850 painted by a famous painter from Orvieto. Every time Luca is around he discovers things and detail about the family history at Castello di Montegiove. This week we found some old file boxes and I especially liked the one with “Contratti Moderni” written on it, they are all from around the beginning of 18-hundred, so maybe not real up-to-date modern contracts.
