THE CASTLE OF LEVIZZANO RANGONE
The Castle of Levizzano was built as a defensive bulwark against the Hungarians and ceded by the bishop of Modena to the Marquis Bonifacio of Modena, Matilda di Canossa's father.
The last important restoration work finished in 2007 and allowed recovering this historical and cultural building, making it perfectly functional to cultural activities.
Within the surrounding wall stand the Matildic Tower and a deconsecrated chapel. Starting from the XII century, the entire structure has been fortified and extended thanks to the construction of the feudal palace. The so called Bishops’ rooms, on the ground floor, with their beautiful frescoed ceilings, date back to the XVI century. Family coats of arms adorn the lacunar ceilings, along with allegorical figures and friezes. Along the top of the walls are frescoes of chivalrous scenes, romantic moments, hunting, but also rural landscapes with small villages and castles which recall closeby places.

ROSSO GRASPA – MUSEUM OF WINE AND RURAL SOCIETY
Inside the museum there are several testimonies of working life in the fields: agricultural tools, instruments for the manufacture of wood and of grapes and extraordinary photographic evidence pleasantly show the social dynamic and good agricultural practices of the peasant society. ROSSO GRASPA does not exhaust its proposal within the castle walls but invites to continue the visit in the "museum outside the museum", which means to admire also the landscape surrounding the Castle of Levizzano, to walk through the fields and to think that walking could become a practice of sincere and engaging knowledge.
