Torre del Marino

Our Renaissance

Built towards the end of the 15th century for defensive and sighting purposes by the Naldi family, Torre del Marino overlooks the Senio Valley, towering over a vast hilly area. After the Naldis the property later passed to the Rondinini family and from 1794 became the property of Antonio Marino, keeping the name.

It’s a distinctive tower with a brick square base with sandstone curbing, a typical example of military renaissance architecture of this historical area.

Up to the present day

Later, the Torre del Marino became an architectural model for the neighboring towers that respect its structure and aesthetic.

During WW2 the Tower was a target of German artillery, suffering some failures (ceiling and support vaults of the internal floors), but it still retains portions of internal stairs and the remains of a monumental chimney.
