“Il Pornello” dates back to 12th century. Thanks to its historicity, it still maintains a unique charm. Near the border with Tuscany and Lazio, this hamlet is located in Umbria at about 427 MAMSL. The whole hamlet and the buildings of the agricultural farm should be upgraded in order to bring the history and culture of the territory back to life. For a total surface of about 3310 sqm, the hamlet includes 9 property. Thanks to the four farmhouses near the main buildings, it is also possible to obtain some additional volumes. All the properties are characterized by stone and bricks external facades, frescoed walls, prestigious finishing, wooden beams and rare potteries. Some buildings are currently in a good state of maintenance while the more distant ones need a reconstruction. As happened in the past for “La Scarzuola”, a possible upgrading of the prestigious “Il Pornello” hamlet would probably benefit a touristic recovery too. The agricultural section is currently divided into three macro-areas: - organic chianina-bovine livestock; - olive oil and wheat production (about 12 ha); - rotating wood production (about 280 ha).
The whole hamlet “Il Pornello” could be an ideal touristic accommodation aimed to the upgrading of an historically-and-culturally important urban area. The possibility of creating suites, apartments and farmhouses of a great level to enter into the touristic rental market would cover the needs of a large section of the market. The idea of bringing, even though the support of the locals, the ancient traditions and habits back to life is amazing: historical re-enactments, dinners and horse excursions into the surroundings. Surely, the increasing of the farm business will demand more attention because it is the real source of income for the locals. For this reason, through a repayment plan, it will be also possible to create and modernise a fundamental section as the agricultural one in order to obtain positive results within a medium-long term.
The whole complex is properly registered at the municipalities of San Venanzo and Montegabbione.

The whole agricultural hamlet “Il Pornello” needs a renovation. By upgrading its ancient frescos, the most noble part of the hamlet needs a simple renovation.
