This is a photo of an amazing castle in Italy called Rocchetta Mattei. Built in the mid-19th century, it was home to Count Cesare Mattei, a self-taught physician who founded electrohomeopathy, a practice that stems from homeopathy. During World War II, German troops damaged the interior of the building. When the war was over, the last heir was unable to sell the building and offered it to the Municipality of Bologna for free. They did not accept the donation. In 1959 Primo Stefanelli bought Rocchetta Mattei. He transformed one of the smaller buildings into a pleasant hotel with an adjoining restaurant. In 1989 Stefanelli died and the building fell into disrepair. Rocchetta Mattei was closed to the public. In 2006, the establishment of Cassa di Risparmio in Bologna announced the acquisition of Rocchetta Mattei. They restored it, which eventually led to its reopening to the public on August 9, 2015.
