Torre e Casa Campatelli

Among the fourteen towers of San Gimignano that have survived to the present day, there is the Torre e Casa Campatelli. The Campatelli family was a family of Florentine entrepreneurs and landowners who bought the entire complex in the early 19th century and made it their home. The house has been preserved thanks to Lydia Campatelli, niece of the Florentine Guido Peyron, who left it to the FAI (National Trust of Italy) in 2005, on the condition that it would be open to the public. When entering this tower, which is the only one to have maintained its original volume, you will get a good glimpse of the history of San Gimignano through the legacy of an upper-middle-class family.
