Full of charm, history and legends, the Rocca di Gradara is one of the best-preserved and most impressive medieval structures in Italy. It became famous in the world thanks to the betrayal between two brothers, Gianciotto and Paolo Malatesta, in love with the same woman, Francesca da Polenta. One of the most tragic and famous love stories of all time, it is celebrated in the fifth canto of Dante Alighieri’s “Inferno” in his Divine Comedy. Over the following centuries the fortress experienced the glories of the Italian Renaissance, and was animated by power intrigues provoked by the presence of Giovanni Sforza and his second wife, the beautiful Lucrezia Borgia, daughter of Pope Alexander VI.
