Chigiano, Le Marche (PRWEB) January 22, 2009
The restoration of Borgo Rosa in Chigiano will be completed this spring. The completed restoration consists of two palaces of the 14th and 15th centuries il Palazzo Palladini and Casa dei Palladini. See the website http://www.marcherustico.com for descriptive details.
Il Borgo Rosa Chigiano appears suddenly after the seemingly endless winding curves of the provincial road that comes up from San Severino Marche toward Apiro, nestled between cultivated fields and small groups of farmhouses.
The village of Chigiano rises on the slope of a minor hill of Mount San Vicino. These hills are covered with forests and foot paths. They are in the province of Macerata, in central Italy on the crest of the Apennines but still only 40 minutes drive from the Adriatic coast.
The village, which expanded around the XIII century to protect trade routes to the upper valley of the Musone River, sits at an altitude of about 600 meters on the crest of the Apennines, has remained intact since that time.
Now a cluster of stone houses, alleyways, stairs, and underpasses that glow a soft pink color reflected from the local chalky stone which has been used to construct all of the buildings. Ovens for cooking bread are set into the walls and available to the whole community to use. The arches and lintels were made with antique mastery. Some ledges are decorated with playful brick designs while others have humble roofs made of boards of oak. These are the simple building elements that, all together, make up the town's particular atmosphere and its sense of history.
The idea was simple: restoring the village in a uniform fashion with care to respect the architectural characteristics of the place as well as maintaining and conserving the town without making major structural changes.
Borgo Rosa is an ideal location for those who are tired of the pace of contemporary life but in search of a refuge. For those who are longing to enjoy that kind of peace and tranquility, as well as a place that is charged with memories, patiently formed in time, Chigiano offers the perfect escape. Now that the restoration is nearing completion, owners are offered substantial discounts on homes that are due to complete in the next six months. The spacious properties are lavishly decorated in weathered materials and will provide an above average return on investment when the project completes.
