I'm Rebecca, and I'm the wife of one of the last descendants of the Gherardi del Testa family, who have always owned the villa. The villa is really beautiful and is already visited by many tourists in the area, always by appointment. It is inhabited by my husband's family even today and we two got married right there, in the small chapel of the family still consecrated which houses inside a madonna attributed to Andrea del Sarto. With me, my husband and his aunt Valeria, you can discover this magnificent private villa, and come back in the XVII XVIII and XIX century.
