Historical Origin And Design Inspiration

 

The Fortress of San Leo is a castle on the border of the Marche and Romagna regions of central Italy, and famous as the death-place of Count Cagliostro. The fortress of San Leo is undoubtly the most well-known in the Dukedom; It enjoys a great fame as a military bulwark, unconquerable less for its fortifications than for its extraordinary geographical position. Nevertheless, this fortress too, necessitated remarkable restoration works during the course of the centuries, both because of the continuous landslides and the ambition to keep it always perfectly efficient.

It was known as the “eternal object of contention” between the families of Malatesta and Montefeltro in the arshest land of their borders. The time of the fortress’s first constrction is unknown, but surely it was during the Longobard age. The old body of the fortress dates to the time of the Malatestas, who restored and modified it. However, only under Federico the fortress underwent substantial changes. This happened around the second half of the 1470s at the same time of the fortress of Cagli, or at least few years before.
