The term “scaligeri" conventionally given to it in the last hundred years is most misleading as the castle has deeper roots than expected and has evolved continuously even in contemporary times. Actually, although founded more than a thousand years ago it still enjoys an extraordinary degree of conservation.
Indeed, History has proved to be mostly benign towards it by sparing the troubles which have instead taken coeval castles to ruin; its geographical position helped in this respect too and nowadays grants the castle the most enchanting background, ideal situation for such a major attraction of the local tourism industry.
The secret of its success? To be always able to get adapted to the present time’s needs.
Its considerable age and the variety of roles played have resulted in a complex stratification which is hard to decrypt also because it’s not matched by consistent specific documentation. However, both the historical context and the critical observing help point out and understand the main stages of its evolution.
This guidebook takes advantage of the most updated knowledge about both local history and the evolution in the fortification systems for enabling the visitor to detect the castle’s development. By highlighting every single significant detail of the castle the visitor enjoys the most complete picture of it and gets back to the several time-periods evoked by it.
