History

The “Casale di Polline” is an integral part of the active 650 acre farm “Polline” which was bought in 1906 by Pietro Di Domenico, grandfather of the current owners, as part of the property called “Polline, Stracciacappe and St. Catherine.” In the “Analysis Antiques of the Charter of the outskirts of Rome” by Antonio Nibby, distinguished scholar of the topography of the Roman countryside, it is reported that in the Leon’s papal edict of Leo IX of 1053, Polline is confirmed in the property to the Vatican Basilica. In this regard the author argues that “the name Polline can result from a temple of Apollo, which is well would agree to the location of the house, situated on a high hill, overlooking Lake Bracciano.” See. Volume III, 118 ed. II 1849. At the request of Pietro Di Domenico the chapel dedicated to Virgin Mary of the Holy Rosary, was built; attached to the house and dependent Regina Pacis Parish of Bracciano Lake. The Casale until the 60s, when many families were living in the company, hosted the State Elementary School for the children of those working in the property and lived in the area.
