The House of Ragazzoni: the epic family history between European courts and family business
You are invited on a journey across 16th Century Europe. Characterised by court plots, business rivalries and diplomatic subterfuge, you will be exploring the enthralling life of Giacomo Ragazzoni.
The man himself will be greeting you in his period costume. He will be telling you about the Ragazzonis’ rise to power, when they quickly progressed from being regular merchants, to becoming the Counts of the Sant’Odorico fiefdom in Sacile, as well as highly regarded members of the Friulian Parliament of the time.
Your tour of the palazzo’s main floor, which houses the Hall of Honour, the Flags’ Hall and the sumptuous Emperors’ Hall, will enable you to discover the connections that the Ragazzoni family had established with the rulers of their day: Mary Tudor, Philip II of Spain, Henry III of France, Mary the Empress of Austria, Selim II the Sultan of Constantinople, and the Doge of Venice. Parting drinks at the end of the visit.
