Each house tells a story but the house we are about to describe, the earliest records of which date back to 1514, when the building was referred to as "domus in Castello", is a veritable treasure trove of stories. Stories that do not need many words to be lived, because they are transmitted by the very essence of the house, renovated with sensitivity and intelligence by its last owners who, thanks to a work of study and research, have given new life to the building while preserving it. the old charm. Even before entering, we perceive the grandeur of a prestigious residence that contrasts with the feeling of intimacy that surrounds us once we cross the threshold. The entrance, cozy but very bright, welcomes us with the typical warmth of the country houses described in Goethe's novels, plus the surprise of glimpsing from the French door directly opposite the entrance, the splendid garden and the magnificent panorama in a game of references between the light and colors of the exterior and the decorations and brightness of the interior. A happy orientation of the building, functional to the sun, makes this choreography of lights and colors possible, which gives the rooms warmth and energy. These suggestions take us through the rooms on the ground floor, where we find a living room, a study, a suggestive dining room decorated on the walls with an elegant trompe l'il and a magnificent kitchen where the modern and functional furnishings are perfectly integrated with the grand fireplace. original and baked for bread bearing the engraving of the initials of one of its ancient owners, Cristoforo Bono. Through a cross vaulted hall we climb the stone stairs to the first floor where the four bedrooms and the music room continue to give us the striking contrast between prestige and intimacy that accompanies us throughout the house. The bathrooms, like the one on the first floor, combine a careful choice of materials with a totally contemporary functionality. But the house has not finished surprising us yet: continuing to venture up the stairs we reach an attic that is unique in terms of volumes and heights, with mighty gnarled exposed beams and a rare original perfectly preserved terracotta floor. Could not miss the large cellar, which has remained unchanged over the centuries, with its brick vaults that make it the ideal environment for storing the finest wines. The building overlooks an enchanting garden, embellished by the nineteenth-century neoclassical pavilion, composed of sloping terraces and characterized by the original Italian garden layout, inevitable in the seventeenth-nineteenth-century stately estates. On the second terrace there is an elegant swimming pool which resembles an ancient nymphaeum in its shape. Our story ends here but the Bogogno domus still has a lot to tell to those who want to have the privilege and sensitivity of being part of its history.
