Who We Are

The Pleasure of the Countryside
The Country House Santa Maria Maddalena borns from the Agricultural Fund Roveri Santa Maria Maddalena by the Roveri family since 1873, located in Bagnarola Budrio, in the fertile countryside south of Bologna; The location is characterized by various water channels and by the trees grouped in a rows like poplars, oaks, mulberries, elms, sycamores. Even today is the greatest example of existing  roman "centuriata"territorial structure, where you can observe the typical subdivision of feudal land .The heyday came in the eighteenth century when the beautiful villas of lavish cohorts of Bentivoglio-Odorici, Malvezzi and Ranuzzi Cospi welcomed the top of the nobility of Bologna and Europe, organizing parties in the halls, in parks or under-garden large balconies; Next to the villas, were built also old farmhouses from the sloping roof with large barns which are repeated in a rectangular shape with tall pillars.
Among the ancient country house was built also the fund Santa Maria Maddalena, that still remained intact as farmyard historic in its original conformation, with the majestic barn, the house, the box and the old oven.
Since 1923 the Roveri family has recovered and maintained the architectural heritage of the Fund and with various interventions of  an intelligent building restoration (in some ways not finished yet) it has returned to the ancient majesty and beauty. The Fund  is today "Country House Santa Maria Maddalena" which may offer a first-class hotel accommodation, all within a large garden of 15000 square meters.
