The history of Palazzo Castriota begins in 1846 with the birth of my great-grandfather Luigi Castriota. For 10 years now, the unity of Italy has been a done deal and Luigi, now thirty-five, marries Isabella De Simone.
Luigi and Isabella love the bucolic life and the countryside and on the occasion of the renovation works they enlarge and embellish the building, which at the time was surrounded by hectares and hectares of land. Over the years, his foresight led him to buy land and machines for the production and distribution of agri-food products, especially oil and wine.
Years and happy summers pass in the countryside, nine children are born.
Two of them, Salvatore and Augusto, will run the company until the mid-1900s, up to the present day, where I, who bear the name of my grandfather Salvatore, tried to bring the building into modernity, providing it with every comfort , and giving you the opportunity to discover its beauty and to enjoy the joy it has brought to me and my family for more than a century, without forgetting, however, what the life of people and objects has been like over the years. they inhabited.
