PRINCE ALESSANDRO TORLONIA: FROM CERI CASTLE TO A BEAUTIFUL HOUSE
The ‘Roman’ Prince Alessandro Torlonia liked hunting and, particularly, the rural area in the neighbourhood of Rome, where even Etruscans had hunted before.
He finished building this house in 1855, including the road leading to Ceri – a magnificent fortress, where the privileged minority lived. Namely his grandparents started building famous Ceri Castle, and it is now the delightsome place of visit for Italian and foreign tourists.
Each time when the prince went hunting, he had a tradition to put up at that house, where he visited his dear horses: presently, his passion has become a Villa and a country house for the most elegant wedding ceremonies in the north part of Rome.
Pinarolo was a faithful guard of that estate and he, as well, delighted the prince with gastronomic specialities, which the latter was keen to. So, as the time passed, that house was mentioned as the estate of Alessandro Torlonia, the prince of Rome.
PRINCE TORLONIA AND HIS HOUSE TODAY: HERE IS THE VILLA AND ITS SERVICES
The Villa surrounded by a splendid park and a centuries-old pinewood is a perfect place for events in Rome and is located at a distance of 32 km from Via Aurelia.
Giorgio Ardisson, an actor, who was popular in the 1960-ies, and his family bought Torlonia Castle circa 20 years ago. After he assessed it and studied its centuries-old history, he renamed it in La Villa Dei Principi.
Nowadays La Villa Dei Principi is open for visits and is used by everybody, who wants to have exclusive parties and to celebrate their outstanding events.
There is one of the most popular restaurants for Sacrament in Rome and it can offer a fully adjustable menu based on the needs of each guest (from those, who suffer from food intolerance to vegetarians and veganists). Casale Romano can offer, besides classical wedding dinners, the halls for lunches and corporate events, the wonderful areas to celebrate a marriage and civil service held in Rome, as well as all professional services related thereto.
