XV century dwelling in Via Donna Orgilla


This house can be reached through the Levante Gate and up Via Cimicone. It is currently located at number 61, Via Donna Orgilla. Dating back to the 15th century, it still retains the original gutters and what remains of the two brick lunettes, one of which adorns a pointed arch and is flanked by a characteristic 'death door'. This residence was built according to the very popular Umbrian-Tuscan building plan, whose architectural conception pursued the objective of defence.
