The large courtyard framing the complex of Rocca Isolani, close to the "Palazzo Nuovo" is a very elegant dovecote, the tower Colombaia, attributed to Jacopo Barozzi, called the Vignola.

Dating back to 1536, with an octagonal interior plan, it has a helicoidal wooden staircase and a complicated system of small cells created to host over 3,000 nests.
