palazzo monti della corte

Palazzo Monti della Corte appears today as the happy result of a series of modifications, extensions and embellishments of the ancient fief of the Federici della Corte family. In the seventeenth century the della Corte family decided to build a sumptuous palace, suitable for receptions and a grand life in country-side. The grand staircase and the atrium with beautiful arches and stone columns date back to this phase.The family of the Barons Monti, a native of Montichiari south of Brescia”, joined to that of the nobles della Corte in the late eighteenth century inherited the “feud” of Nigoline, thus was born the name Monti della Corte. Among the most important exponents of the family we remember Alessandro Monti, leader of the Italian and Hungarian Risorgimento.The last Baron Monti della Corte was Professor Alexander Augustus (1902-1975). Adventurous traveller and erudite scholar of history, politics and heraldry, participated in only eighteen years old company with Gabriele d’Annunzio in Fiume. Alexander Augustus had two daughters, Beatrice and Maria Enrica, both with a strong sense for the changing times: Beatrice, the eldest, had a brilliant career in the way of contemporary art and international avant-garde. Today is the head of the Santa Maddalena Foundation. The youngest, Chica, devoted himself to revive the activities related to wine Palazzo Monti della Corte producing one of the finest wines of Franciacorta. Chica married the dutch Count Thomas de Marchant et d’Ansembourg, by whom he had three children, Marie-José, Isabella and Alexander today’s custodians and inhabitants of the ancient and beloved home.
