Historyof Casa Matteucci

At the foot of Monte Pisano, in the Vorno valley, (6 km from Lucca) is this beautiful typical Tuscan farmhouse, nestled among olive groves. In front of the house, a wooden bridge over a small pond leads to a charming private island shaded by trees. The property was the home of the famous architect Felice Matteucci who invented the first striking engine (prototype for the modern car) in his on-site laboratory. He lived in this home from 1808 to 1887 where he conducted his most important scientific research. Matteucci was the son of the famous Minister of Justice of the Republic of Lucca and noblewoman Angiola Tomei Albiani. Over the centuries the house has hosted many fancy events and noble ceremonies. Today it is a charming villa for rent with 6 beautiful bedrooms with private bathrooms. Moreover, its beautiful and magnificent park is perfect for wedding parties and social events.
