Villa Dianella: the history

The splendid Villa Dianella is located in Vinci, a historic village in the province of Florence. The residence boasts an ancient history dating back to the 16th century when it served as a hunting lodge for the Medici family. It is one of the famous Medici villas where the family used to spend their vacations.

Later, Villa Dianella passed into the ownership of the Federighi marquises. In the 18th century, they sold the complex to the Fucini family. Among the family members, the renowned poet Renato Fucini composed several works and sonnets at the villa. A novella titled "A Dianella" was even dedicated to the structure.

In the 20th century, Villa Dianella changed owners again, passing through various families. After being acquired by the heirs of Professor Camillo Arturo Torrigia, the mansion then belonged to the Billeri family. They sold the complex to the Counts Passerin d'Entrèves and Courmayeur, nobles of Florentine origin. A significant restoration of the village was initiated, transforming it into an elegant and sober residence.

Today, Villa Dianella is owned by Francesco and Veronica Passerin d'Entrèves, who passionately oversee the family businesses. Villa Dianella is now the headquarters of a renowned estate, famous for the production of organic wine and extra virgin olive oil. The complex also houses a wine resort and a restaurant, making it suitable for hosting events and weddings.
