Villa Dosi Delfini History

The Villa "dei Chiosi" was built in the last years of the seventeenth century by the will of the brothers Carlo and Francesco Dosi, wealthy businessmen who had found in the Pontremoli Granducale an ideal place to develop flourishing trade between the port of Livorno and the Po valley .

The idea and the project of the Villa are linked precisely to the figure of Carlo Dosi, a man of vast culture passionate about art and architecture, who chose for the decoration of his "home" some of the most prominent artists of the time, such as the Lombard architect and decorator Francesco Natali and the Tuscan painter Alessandro Gherardini.

Over the years following the French Revolution, the family suffered a patrimonial crisis and the abandonment of the house was the culmination of this story.
In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries the fate of the family gradually recovered, thanks to figures such as Gian Simone and his son Andrea. During the last century the properties were reunited and finally during the 90s they have undergone a conservative restoration that have brought the villa back to its former glory.
