Interesting Facts:

The large building of San Giovanni commands an expansive view of the valley below. It was originally three adjacent Longobard towers, built perhaps as early as 600 or 700 AD.

With the coming of the Berardenga family after 850 it was englobed in their castle and housed the only peasant family to live inside the castle walls instead of dispersed around the extensive property.

The kitchen on the east side occupied the middle room, with a small window and a large recess where the coppered pots and pans hung above a big flat stone sink that now sits outside the house near the Fondi door.

The wall alongside the stairs that lead to the court contains a stone with a hole in it, where the children of the family would deposit the teeth they lost, for the Tooth Mouse to ‘buy’ with a small coin
