Noceto Details

About 12 kilometers west of Parma, Italy, lies the town of Noceto, in the region of Emilia-Romagna. An imposing fortress in the center of town, the Fortress of Noceto, watches over all that takes place. First constructed in the 13th century by Oberto Pallavicino, the castle has changed hands several times among feudal lords before its present use as the town hall. Also in Noceto is the church of San Martino, built around the 12th century, housing valuable works of art by Ludovico Pessi, Mauro Oddi, and Giovan Maria Conti della Camera. You can even combine pleasure with history in the 17th century Petiot's Casino, so named because it was the court architect Petiot in 1759 to whom it was entrusted to build it.Further on down the Via Giacomo Matteoti are several smaller medieval-era towns, among them Medesano and Felegara, both with former castles of their own. And if old churches and castles don't appeal to you, you can always catch a game of the local football team, S.S.D. Crociati Noceto, if they're in town.
