RIVALTA CASTLE

Description
The castle is in Rivalta suggestive village, located on the banks of the river Trebbia. First evidence of the village goes back to 1048; in the first decade of 1300 its lord was Obizzo Landi, to whose ancient and noble family it belonged, through ups and downs, until the half of 1800, when it passed to the Zanardi Landi Counts branch of the family, who still own it. In the second half of the 15th century the castle was transformed into a luxury mansion and the builduing was enlarged through the construction of a palace growing around an elegant courtyard with porches and arcades. The circular tower is highly interesting and was designed by the architect Solari. The surrounding park is made of secular trees.
