CACCIAGUERRA-ORTOLANI VILLA AND STABLES

In the plate found on the pillar at the entrance we can also read Montagnola, a word that indicates the name that was originally given to Voltana central area, and which is still used today by the elderly in memory of the hill on which the first nucleus of the town arose. Such hill probably formed from sediments or the remaining part of a bank of the Santerno River, the watercourse of which long ago was on what is today Via Fiumazzo.
