The complex of Rocca Isolani, situated in Minerbio, is a masterpiece of 16th-century Bolognese architecture.

The building of the Rocca began in 1403 when the Isolani, given the feud of Minerbio by the Visconti for their help in conquering Bologna, decided to build a dwelling with an essentially defensive design. Destroyed in 1527 by the Lanzichenecchi as they were marching towards Rome, the Rocca was rebuilt in the mid-16th century as a noble residence, abandoning all the military characteristics of the original construction.

 

An example of the greatest decorative art of the 16th century, the Rocca boasts an interior with an extraordinary cycle of frescoes, the work of the most original painter of his time: Amico Aspertini .

 

The Rocca Isolani is available on demand for visits or public ceremonies as well as private ones: meetings, weddings, gala dinners, fashion shows and private receptions.
