Who We Are
A family history
Villa Pulejo a nineteenth-century historical mansion with unique origins.
The Ficus Magnolia, inside the park where stands the Villa itself, was planted in 1860, in honor of the landing of Garibaldi’s men to conquer the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies before the Unit of Italy, took place the following year, in 1861.
The Consul of the Kingdom of Sardinia Francesco Lella, a friend of Count Camillo Benso di Cavour, as well as ancestor of Pulejo, put the first stone of the future Villa, gaining ground in those years and completing the construction of the dwelling in 1880.
The grounds of the Villa remained unchanged over the decades and was always the family residence of Lella-Pulejo in the summer months.
So pass on from generation to generation, until arriving in 1957 to the current heirs of Pulejo Family.
