historical background of Roccasinibalda:
The first documentary evidence for the existence of Roccasinibalda appears in 1084, which shows it to be in the posession of the Sinebaldo family. Having passed through the hands of the Abbey of Farfa followed by various noble families of Rome, it was donated, in 1526, by Pope Clement VII to Cardinal Alessandro Cesarini. It was Cesarini and his sucessors who transformed the original castle into the imposing fortress and residential palace that we see today, designed by the Sienese military archiect, Baldassarre Peruzzi.
