HISTORY OF THE ANTONIOLI ESTATE

The villa belonged to the Antonioli family, famous notaries in Lucca since the end of 1400. The coat of arms is in sandstone and is placed over the gate at the entrance to the villa. The coat of arms depicts an anvil with a rose over.

The villa is constituted by two rectangular bodies, linked together so as to form a "T".

On the first floor stands a porch - a Loggia - with sandstone columns. This Loggia is one of the few - probably the only one existing to date - among the more than one hundred villas of Lucca. Another peculiarity of the Loggia is that it is built on the first floor, rather than on the ground floor, as it is more usual.

The loggia on the left of the facade - located on the eastern side - is completely open on three sides, thus strengthening further its open space character. From here one can enjoy the view of the countryside and the plain towards Lucca.  The part of the loggia facing the gardens and orchards provides a sort of shelter for more private family life.
