During the War the building was bought by the R.S.I. to be used, in the old cellar, as storehouse for the Italian-German troops. A part of the first floor was used as house for the Agriculture Minister’s chauffeur, who lived in that period in Renzano. Afterwards, with the arrival of the American army, it was occupied by a platoon for the mountain’s control, with the partisan collaboration of the Fiamme Verdi. During the Second World War the building was also occupied by the old Don Vincenzo Galli, his niece Alba Ferretti and her son Prof. Ubaldo Pedrazzani.
Because of the earthquake of 2004, the building was condemned and the old owner, Prof. Ubaldo Pedrazzani Ferremi (teacher of Math, Latin and Astronomy), wasn’t able to continue the restorations, due to the amount of work which was necessary. Although the building could benefit of the regional grants for the earthquake, not an euro was requested.

A 17th-century ex-cloister, at the beginning of the 1700 it became property of the nobles of the Republic of Venice. The effigies of their family are still visible on the entrances’ marble lintels. Afterwards, in the half of the 1800, the structure was transformed in an agricultural setting to produce wine (in the basement) and to cultivate silkworms (in the attic). Now where you can find our beautiful olive trees, till the beginning of the Second World War there were vineyards and mulberry trees.
In 1907 the entire cloister, with the relevant ground, was divided into two parts. The current seat of the Agriturismo Milord was bought by a priest, Don Vincenzo Galli priest of Campoverde, who made the first restorations.
At the end of the Second World War, with the increasing economic wellbeing, the entire building was restored without safeguarding its historical figure. Rolling shutters were inserted, instead of the ancient jalousies, and the facades were cemented to consolidate the stone structure below.
After long and exhausting years for the search of funds and the authorisations, in 2013 we began the restoration. Main purpose of our restoration politic was, first of all, to make earthquake-proof the structure (because of the earthquake of 2004 which condemned the building), to update it to the recent energetic rules and to bring it back to its ancient architectural splendour taking off all the infrastructures, rolling shutters, cement and all that disfigured its historical value.
Nowadays it is a fantastic building, which its past, but in the main time it gives the tourist a little Paradise, for its welcome and peace.
