  • In 1313 and in 1317, through the wars among vassals of the mountain, Montefiorino was occupied again. Guidinello Montecuccoli, that installed himself here, strengthened and provided the castle and built the building of the fortress in 1320. In that year another defensive tower was finished, to south of the suburb, the tower Del Poggio, now called Torre del Mercato. Rebuilt in the XVI cent., but again crumbling at the end of the XIX cent., the tower called Del Mercato was rebuilt in the XX century with the reconstruction of the terminal part with the bell tower. In the inferior part, that preserves partially the original building hangings with regular courses, the primitive loophole and the squared openings are interesting.
