This farmhouse is part of a larger historic farm belonging to a well-known family of the Maremma: the Pallini family.
The Pallini family was part of those landowners from Casentino who came to the Maremma in winter to graze their flocks (sheep, cows and horses). The so-called transhumance practiced a few hundred years ago. Among these transhumant families there were also the Ponticelli, the Pierini and the Bellugi, related to the Pallini.
In 1765 Grand Duke Pietro Leopoldo and then his son Ferdinando III created large estates with a portion of pine forest surrounded by land to be reclaimed; these estates were largely assigned, with the obligation of reclamation, to transhumants who already knew the difficult climate of the Maremma. Among these there were also the Pallini and in 1826 the family moved permanently to Grosseto.
Years went by and the family reclaimed the marshy land they owned thanks to a network of ditches and canals.
In 1968 Marcello Pallini inherited this farm from his grandmother’s brother, Luigi Ponticelli, who was passionate about racehorses and who selected the Casalone breed. Also, Luigi was one of the promoters of the construction of the Grosseto Racecourse (which took its name from its breeding).
It was in 1999 that Marcello and Diana Pallini decided to transform the farmhouses into an agritourism.
