Palazzo Lana: without its historic rooms, there would be no Franciacorta to taste today. In particular, the sparkling hall of the caminadù with its large Botticino marble fireplace, where Guido Berlucchi and Franco Ziliani met for the first time. This is where it all began.
If you have the chance to visit the palace during a cultural event or a guided tour, you will notice the powerful aura emanating from its ancient walls.
It was built over an existing medieval structure in the sixteenth century by the Lana de’ Terzi family, the noble dynasty from which Guido Berlucchi descended, and it took on its current appearance in the seventeenth century. It exhibits a layering of different and perfectly harmonious architectural styles. Inside you can admire unique works of art, such as the painting of Caterina Cornaro, Queen of Cyprus and patron of the arts, whose portrait dates back to 1495 when she was a guest in the palace.
