..Murice romano clarus virtue Quirinus clarior huc postquam venit tanto hospite felix dig. rogo non superas latias mea villula villas

Antica Villa a degnified detached house preserving the architectural style peculiar to the original 18th century villa, costitutes a small and comfortable oasis situated between the town and its up-hill Ronchi (vineyards and orchards).
Investigating its historical origins, it appears that the villa belonged to a family of earls named Gigli (Lilies), whose coat of arms can be see inside whereas the initials of that noble family appear on the wrought-iron gate at the entrance.

Inside the hotel we can see a plaque with a latin inscription reporting that the most outstanding guest of the villa was "quirinus", most likely a gentleman of the Querini Stampalia family of Venetian nobility boasting Roman ancestors, who became bishop of Brescia and afterwards a cardinal.
