"Villa Montefiore" was built in the first half of the 17th century by the noble family Ripanti. "Palazzo Ripanti", the headquarters of this important aristocratic clan, still dominates Piazza Federico II in Jesi. Our villa was their country home and the Ripanti family spent most of the summer there in order to personally follow up the agricultural harvest. The Marquise Ripanti and the Marquis Guidi gave in dowry their holiday home in occasion of their daughter’s wedding with Nicola Boncori.
Behind the villa the property also included the farmers' house and in the center of the courtyard a splendid church, dedicated to the Saints Filippo Neri and Giacomo. Unfortunately the God’s house was demolished around 1965. Today a small chapel recalls the beauty of the church which was celebrated by the bishops during their pastoral visits to Monsano.
In 2004 the construction company Allegrezza Giulietti Alberto startet with the project. In all these years Alberto, Alessandro and Andrea have carried out an accurate restoration. They highlighted the characteristics of the building and preserved its soul thanks to the use of original materials. Today Villa Montefiore finally returns to be a splendid holiday home with a perfect balance between history and comfort.
