As with an historic villa worth its salt, Villa Stecchini harbours many a secret.
One of the most well-told tales is the ghost of Luigi, who has fun playing in the villa’s rooms, switching off the lights unexpectedly and throwing himself against the doors and windows.
Luigi is a good ghost who is a bit of a joker and who is very fond of Villa Stecchini: he must be, he has lived here for 400 years since its construction in 1600! The body of Luigi is buried in the villa’s private chapel, which is still consecrated.
There are also more recent stories associated with Villa Stecchini, such as those dating back to the Second World War, when the German army took over the main floor of the house. The Stecchini family lived on the first floor and the Resistance would hide in the dungeons of the cellars, unbeknown to the German troops.
These are just some of Villa Stecchini’s secrets, why not visit the villa and stay the night for the chance to learn more about its many legends, mysterious tales and stories?
