Dating back to the first half of the 18th century, Villa Cozzano has been home to numerous people and activities over time. The farmhouse, housed in the early years of six peasant families working in the surrounding land, was later inherited by the Lazzerini family, which made it a cultural center and a place for meeting and work.
An elementary school was build to provide children basic education; a ballroom, known as the Blue Grotto, was built to dance and sip wine and a large oven was set up for the villagers, especially for baking some bread.
In the years to come, there was also a shoemaker, a grocery store, a barn and a cellar.
With time, a large family was born in this small hill of Tuscany!
Years later, in both world wars, the cottage sheltered people escaping from the big neighbor countries;
In 1960 the economic boom and the great emigration to the cities left the house uninhabited.
In 1996, two young lovers, Cristiano Fabrizi and Manuela Lazzerini, the latter descendants of the old family, began a lengthy renovation work that ended in 2013.
The result of their efforts and their love for this beautiful place is Villa Cozzano.
