The estate

The entire complex was purchased in 1992 by the Salvadori family, a careful renovation began, respecting the original architecture, using materials used for bio-architecture, such as stone, bricks, lime and wood; thus starting a tourist activity "Tenuta Quarrata".

The name Quarrata derives from the Roman period and indicates the headquarters located in wooded areas. Villa San Giorgio takes its name from an ancient local church which dates back to the period of the Lombard invasions (980 AD).

A bit of history...

After the Second World War, the decline of the entire structure slowly began, various families alternated in succession, causing the total collapse of the entire estate.

The Church suffered serious damage to the structure with the collapse of the roof, was abandoned to itself, and was the subject of the theft of sacred works, the Madonna placed on the altar was taken to the parish of Santo Pietro. From testimonies collected, the Madonna of the Immaculate Conception will return when the Church is restored again.
