It's a characteristic middle age tower, it's origins can be leaded up around the year 1000 A.C. (The building is rises nearby the Etruscan town of Cortona). We wanted to give it the name of Dardano by the way the legend tells that this mythological character was the founder of Cortona and that from here he left to found Troy. And from there Enea left to arrive in Italy and give the birth to Rome. (That's the reason of the popular proverb saying that Cortona is the mum of Troy and the grandma of Roma). The building has been accurately reconstructed in a way to be comfortable for living. At the first floor we find a large kitchen/living roomwith a typical fireplace made of stone with at the center sculptured a coat of arms of the Cardinal Passerini: a glorious coat for Cortona proving that this building was probably property of that famous Cardinal, State secretary and counselor of Pope Leone X of Medici.

On the same floor there are two wide rooms: one matrimonial and one with three single beds. Nearby the two rooms there is a small but functional bathroom with shower. From the living room a typical wood ladder takes to the two upper floors of the tower: on the first there is a matrimonial room with two characteristic beamed windows made of terracotta. The bricks made of terracotta decorate also the floor. On the same level there is a confortable bathroom with shower. Going to the last floor there is maybe the most beautiful and characteristic room with terracotta floor and with a small gothic windows. Outside there is an ancient pit made of stone, situated at the center of the old barnyard where once upon a time there were taking place the traditional rural festivals, particularly the “grain beating”, with banquets, dances, and with furtive love glances.
