The castle, located on the periphery of the main urban core of Reggio Emilia, in harmony with the picturesque landscape at the foot of the hilly terrain.

The manor was part of a more ambitious project, but rather the Ducal Palace in Rivalta and his "Park of delights", imitating the famous French Royal Palace of Versailles, which was introduced by the design and scenographic old architectural buildings.
In 1732 work began on the creation of the lake in the center of which in 1756-1757 years will be built a Mansion, later called "Villa d'este". In 1733, Denella writes: "... il nostro Principe ereditario faceva escavare formarvi terra per un lago circondato da grossi muraglioni che aveva a servire ad uso di pesca con un piccolo Casino di caccia nel mezzo di quelli col nome di Fuggi l Ozio". The meaning, which later acquired the meaning "a refuge from the bustle, noise and idleness".

His offer of 25 billion lire (today, about 13 million Euro) was rejected by the owner - an elderly woman who wanted to live there your age.
