In Bagnolara di Budrio, a few kilometers from the city center of Bologna, an hour from the sea of Romagna, about thirty minutes from the nearest airport and the railway station, one finds this charming property, known in the past as " Accademia dei Notturni" and where until recently important events were organized.
Built in the 1600s, the villa was enlarged by the architect Sebastiano Bertelli during the first decade of the 1700s. The coats of arms of the various owners are painted on the portal, which leads from the external loggia to the large hall: above them stands the figure of a winged horse, the "Pegasus" age-old ornament of the family. Inside the building one finds the imposing central hall adorned with large paintings by Gaddi, dated 1763 and depicting ruins, according to the history of the time.
One also finds four oval over doors, from the same period and attributed to Lodi and Bertuzzi, with scenes of natural and agricultural life. Count Prospero Ranuzzi Cospi also gave an important cultural accent to this sumptuous artistic character, founding here the Academy of «I Notturni», where he held his erudite meetings and concerts. Equipped with a working professional kitchen and large rooms, the property lends itself to various uses, with woodland and a park of about 4 hectares.
