Founded as a monastery in the ninth century, the Montelattaia farm was transformed into a fortified rural complex in the late Middle Ages, and then became the property of private households.
From 2006 to 2009 Edilia Interna was responsible for the historical restructuring of the farm. The living units, the porch, the family chapel, the old tavern, the cellars and the terrace with pergola, were all skillfully restored. The whole project was carried out with respect to the atmosphere of the place, always aiming at the enhancement of the original structure and the use of existing materials, such as the old chestnut wooden beams and old handmade terracotta.
