Emilia Romagna Castles

Rocca Meli Lupi di Soragna

A fabulous fortress, still the property of the Meli Lupi family, it represents the heart of the small village of Soragna. Surrounded by the romantic English park, it makes you dream with its precious furnishings, the triumph of works of art and stuccos, the splendid frescoes. The long Gallery of the Poets is enchanting overlooking the corridor on a delightful terrace overlooking the pond, the Sala del Trono, where the red and gold tones are lit, in a baroque atmosphere that becomes almost rococo in the anteroom, in the room of the spouses and in the boudoir. And yet the Gallery of the Nuns, which collects precious relics and historical artifacts belonging to the noble family including wheelchairs, an electrostatic machine, clothing, decorations, a velocipede and many objects that have unique stories to tell. In the historic home every room is a discovery. The Meli Lupi Fortress is one of the jewels of the Circuit of the Castles of the Duchy.
