The historical events involving me followed those of San Cassiano farmhouse.
It is not known, if the old castle, probably represented by a structure with towers to defend the community, was founded in the same area as present day or in immediate proximity.
My structure seems to be from the 18th century, when Giuseppe Frisari bought the feud of San Cassiano from the Lubelli who possessed the title of barons. The Frisari were the last feudal lords of San Cassiano as well as my last owners.
An archway, delimited by two tapered columns, leads to the court yard, whilst a second, through a door, leads to some rooms, now used for commercial activities.
The courtyard has a quadrangular form, whose linearity is interrupted by a much taller structure in respect to the others. On the side of the courtyard that faces the entrance, there is a door and above it, is the coat of arms of the Frisari, that leads to some internal rooms.
