Palace in the historic center of Poppi
The Gatteschi-Crudeli palace is located in the historic center of Poppi in Casentino, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, located in a geographical position easily reachable from both Florence and Arezzo (SR 70).
The ancient palace overlooks the churchyard of the Romanesque church of San Fedele (late 10th century), a place of religious historical interest for the various artifacts contained within its library.

The building is on three levels including the ground floor, has also a basement for cellars and funds that can be accessed from the back; The main façade overlooks Via Cavour, the ancient Borgo of Poppi.
Access portal and windows are framed by linear Serene stone (typical Tuscan stone), the surface is plastered;
The surface of the rear elevation of the building is not stone-faced; on the back there is an interesting example of an Italian garden, surrounded in part by the ancient city walls, which can also be accessed from a side portal.

Beyond the wall there is another plot of land owned by the Gatteschi family.
