History

Isabella was the first Princess of Piombino and the last of the Appiano lineage. As a teenager, she loses her first love and her kingdom within a few months. Despite her defeat, she doesn't give up and manages to reclaim the throne, which she will share with her great love: Paolo Giordano II Orsini, Duke of Bracciano. Once she reclaims her kingdom, Isabella, madly in love, follows her Duke to this village, where they spend years in peace and tranquility. She is later deposed from the throne through a conspiracy, ending a great dynasty. It is said that in this room, she posed for the famous artist Ottavio Leoni, when in the prime of her years and power, she reigned over all her domains.

Iconic Antiques
