A bit of history...

Interesting historiographic research and documents shed a light on the powerful connection between the Molajoni family and the territory.
The two brothers, Stefano and Agostino, moved to Rome in the early ‘500s, and their best known descendant, Girolamo, was appointed gentleman of honor by Cardinal Giuseppe Doria, Pio VII’s Secretary of State. His son, purchased an estate, called La Ferriera near Castel Cellesi, about 10 miles from Viterbo.
The Ferriera bordered with the area surrounding ​​the Cuccumelle Castle, part of Orvieto Grand Duchy, which was destroyed by a fire.
The Estate was close to the Celleno Castle, now a half-ruined castle with century-old rose gardens, where the remains of the well-known artist Enrico Castellani are found, who had made his private studio in the Castel. Celleno has its roots in the Etruscan and Greek civilization with signs scattered throughout the territory.
Back to Vincenzo Molajoni, remembered for having discovered a ferrous material on his farm at La Ferriera and for having experimented and innovated a mining machine for factories there. Vincenzo also put an old oil spring system back into operation and built a new one, along the waterfalls of the Rio Chiaro river. Vincenzo's most important initiative was the production of the iron and steel type and having started the production and processing of hemp. The hemp of Viterbo was considered among the most robust and soft in Italy and abroad.

Life at Ferriera continued, for many years, quiet and industrious, under the management of the Molajoni, until the property was sold to two Romans: Dr. Gian Franco Gianello and Dr. Enzo Mei.
In 1994, the new owners, began reconstructing the beauties of the past, carrying out reclamation works, renovating the four almost non-existent buildings and building a new house for the keepers, one of whom had even worked in the ancient iron mine of the Molajoni.
Later, however, after a few years of total abandonment of the property, it passed into the hands of two professional roman lawyers, Maurizio Canfora and Patrizia Del Nostro, who fell in love with the beauty of these places and committed themselves to the recovery of gardens, crops and farmhouses.
The story continues.
