Notes NOTES: A tower on this site is thought to have existed since the 12th century. This tower, a landmark of the town, was rebuilt in the 15th century under Pierluigi Farnese. This image is one of many taken by Ivy de Wolfe, the pseudonym of Hazel de Cronin Hastings, of Italian subjects. Many of these appeared in the book 'The Italian Townscape' by Ivor de Wolfe (London, Architectural Press, 1963). This appeared in the publication as fig. 392.
