Interesting Facts:

Fattoria was the overseer’s house. The Fattoressa (overseer’s wife) would provide the owner Palmieri his meals when he did not want to open the big house and instead slept in the tower over the entrance to the court. 

The family in Fattoria lived around a big kitchen table, but one of the bedrooms was then a very formal parlor, kept locked except for special occasions such as receiving Montalto’s owners.

Over the kitchen sink can still be seen the remains of the old wooden piattaia, or dish rack, where washed dishes were placed, neatly separated by wooden bars, to dry and wait for their next use.

Most of the apartment still has its original hand-made Tuscan cotto floor.

The painting of a little boy is not a family member but part of a study for a fresco by the spanish painter Josè Moya del Pino, Diana's father.
