Villa Locatelli: History

Villa Locatelli is a historic 18th-century mansion built in Cormons - Tenuta di Angoris, in the gentle countryside of Gorizia.  According to official sources, the structure was in fact built in 1735 and has been owned by Baron Giorgio Locatelli since 1811. He chose the mansion as his holiday home, transforming it into a huge mansion during the 19th century. During this period, the villa was raised by one storey and structurally modified. A small church dedicated to St Cecilia was also built, which is still consecrated today.

Like many other complexes in the area, Villa Locatelli also suffered extensive damage during the world wars. After each war, it was subjected to careful restoration, thanks to the perfectly preserved structure. In particular, with the outbreak of World War I, the property was seized and made available to the Italian Army. This used it as a military hospital, obviously causing extensive damage to the complex.

In 1937, Villa Locatelli passed first to Max Orefice and, after two years, to the brothers Giuseppe, Luigi and Orlando Miani. The latter founded here the Società Anonima Trasformazioni Conduzioni Agricole, better known as SARCA. Further restoration work on Villa Locatelli was also commissioned in this period from the famous Roman architect Tullio Rossi.

Today, Villa Locatelli is one of the most prestigious locations for the most beautiful and important events. Open for weddings and conventions, it is one of the most exclusive venues in this corner of paradise.
