Palazzo Orlandi-Contucci

Montescudo - Montecolombo - Montecolombo

Dating from the 16th century, but renovated in the 19th century it was once the keep of the castle that was the residence of the captain of the military garrison and local lord. In the 18th century it became the property of the Contucci family, originally from Montecolombo. From the end of the 19th century onwards, the family had no more male heirs, but their name was saved by the descendents, starting with the last son-in-law who was related to Giacomo Leopardi. It is the second largest building in the old town after the one that houses the town hall
