Avignonesi

In 1377, when pope Gregory XI moved the papal residence back to Rome from Avignon, some noble families left France to follow him. It was at that time, in Italy, that one of those families became known as Avignonesi.

It is not known exactly when Avignonesi’s cellars were built, but they are doubtless among the most ancient in Italy. Palazzo Avignonesi was built according to a design by Jacopo Barozzi (called Vignola) in the second half of the XVI century and it has always been the cellars’ seat.
