  • PIGNONE - Vitriola

  • Already indicated in the devotion of 1173, when at Vitriola a family head declares to come "from Pugnone", the place doesn't present other buildings but two houses-tower as is written by Bucciardi. That one denominated "the Tordagna" to southeast, for a vertical lesion, is divided into two bodies one of which is entirely collapsed. The tower with rectangular plant, that was already present in the first decades of the twentieth century, damaged and without coverage is attributed by Bucciardi to the XI cent.; but it is probably of the thirteenth-century. the other house-tower "Pignone", to northwest, is stumpier, with three levels too, and it is well preserved after nineteenth-century interventions ( evident is the chain bond that ties entirely the structure ), that have consolidated the building and permitted the construction of new windows. The building hanging is in some points regular with big angular tans. Interesting is the portal of the XIII-XIV century in the ground floor and the window, respectively oval and rounded, with tans carefully quadrated and juxtaposed, as in the preceding tower, as insert. In the arc key there is a coat of arms with a cross subscribed in a circular creasing, impending a bas-relief with a tree.
