Castello Aghinolfi

Castello Aghinolfi


Montignoso, Italy (IT)
The Castle is first mentioned in documents of the year 753 A.D., when the Longobard king Astolfo made gift to one of his brother-in-law, the abbot founder of the abbey of Nonantola near Modena, of a piece of land in this area. From the name 'Aghinolfo' came out the clear Longobard origin of the castle, even if it's not sure that its foundation was been effected by the King in person or by a vassal of him, while it's certain that the zone of Montignoso belonged at that times to the crown.
