The incredible story of the Posta Vecia
The story of the Residence Posta Vecia is a fascinating unique one. For Centuries it was a stopping point for refreshments and accommodation for the travellers that covered the antique Postumia Road, built by the Romans in the 2°Century before Christ, to connect the "Tirreno" to the Adriatic. Here carriages and coaches stopped for the passengers to rest and to change the horses.
Here, between the Lgth and 20th February 1821, Silvio Pellico, author of "My Prisons" (Le Mie Prigioni), passed the night when he was being transferred from Milan to Brno, where a prison cell of the "cruel" Spielberg, was awaiting him. A stone tablet on the wall of the Posta Vecia remembers that night. Among the historical characters that stayed at the Post Vecia mentioned is Napoleone Bonaparte, Archduke of Austria Carlo, Josef Radetzky, Princes, Generals and French and Austrian Diplomats. Stilltoday the Residence is a Hotel with rooms where you can stay after a splendid dinner.
