This study aims to examine a place with very suggestive characteristics: Rocchetta Mattei. Rocchetta Mattei is a Castle located in Riola, municipality of Grizzana Morandi, in the province of Bologna. It owes its name to Count Cesare Mattei (1809-1896) and was built between 1850 and 1858, on top of the ruins of a more ancient building, which dates back to the 13th century, the castrum of Savignano. Today it is considered a unique and suggestive building, made up of mazes of towers, monumental stairways, reception halls and private rooms all designed in different styles. It’s an architectural complex composite, eclectic, built at several different points in time, with oriental references, where neo-Medieval, Moorish, neo-Renaissance, Egyptian and liberty architectures blend. Given its unique architectural form, it is impossible to capture its beauty and uniqueness from a singular perspective. For this reason, we believe that a drone gaze can best convey its outstanding and unique characteristics, as well as tell the story of this handcrafted jewel. Rocchetta Mattei has a complex history, which finds its roots in the eclecticism of invented castles and is defined by magical and mysterious features that only a drone gaze can represent in the best way possible.

Abstract

This study aims to examine a place with very suggestive characteristics: Rocchetta Mattei. Rocchetta Mattei is a Castle located in Riola, municipality of Grizzana Morandi, in the province of Bologna. It owes its name to Count Cesare Mattei (1809-1896) and was built between 1850 and 1858, on top of the ruins of a more ancient building, which dates back to the 13th century, the castrum of Savignano. Today it is considered a unique and suggestive building, made up of mazes of towers, monumental stairways, reception halls and private rooms all designed in different styles. It’s an architectural complex composite, eclectic, built at several different points in time, with oriental references, where neo-Medieval, Moorish, neo-Renaissance, Egyptian and liberty architectures blend. Given its unique architectural form, it is impossible to capture its beauty and uniqueness from a singular perspective. For this reason, we believe that a drone gaze can best convey its outstanding and unique characteristics, as well as tell the story of this handcrafted jewel. Rocchetta Mattei has a complex history, which finds its roots in the eclecticism of invented castles and is defined by magical and mysterious features that only a drone gaze can represent in the best way possible.
