Rustico / Casale Strada Provinciale delle Pinete, Monticiano
MONTICIANO - strada provinciale delle pinete
In 1100 the castle was used for the attendant to control people who came from the white road and to open the big door to access the inner courtyard. For years and probably for centuries, it has been the storage for hay and farm equipment, animal travellers' shelter and today, after years of careful restoration, Tocchi Tower has become an apartment on three floors which retains the charm of its history and the warmth that only natural materials like pink Sienese stone, the "trampled" terracotta floor and the wood can communicate. Where possible the walls in pink stone were maintained, the others have been plastered using the lime of Sienese quarries, with their particular yellow colour.
