Castello Castagneto Po The Castle of Castagneto Po, a timeless retreat, is recognized as one of the most refined and important residences in Europe. The origins: The origins of the Castello di Castagneto Po date back more than a thousand years ago. Over the course of time, the clashes that saw the protagonist as the object of conquest given the strategic position made it decisively important for the rulers. Between 1500 and 1700 Castagneto suffered numerous invasions by the French armies, and together with Chivasso was included in the defensive chain of the Po. In 1705 the manor was destroyed and the accounts of Trabucco rebuilt the castle on drawings by architect Nicolis de Robilant And completed in 1835 by Ernesto Melano, architect of the King of Italy. Towards the end of 1800 the property passed to Ceriana. Arturo Ceriana made remarkable embellishments and added a gallery designed in '500 style and finely decorated with marble and fine carved stones. Two great artists working in Piedmont, Gonin (1808-1889) and Sereno (1829-1893), deal with the decoration of some rooms. Subsequently, from Ceriana, the castle passed to the Bruni Tedeschi Family, which undertook important renovations and made it one of the finest mansions in Europe and home to exhibitions and events of particular artistic interest. The property belonging to the Bruni-Tedeschi family for generations and therefore boasts among its illustrious residents Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, the First Lady of France.
