History

Borro is a Tuscan word that probably refers to a chasm or a gap in the earth. They initially used it to describe a fortress on the edge of this chasm to guard a strategic area. Il Borro's control has long been a source of conflict among factions and local noble families. But the first recorded mention of the Castle is from 1254.

Alessandro dal Borro is the real "father" of Borro. He began transforming and expanding the fortress in the 16th century. He started with the noble past of the estate. Then, the family applied alterations and extensions that featured some of Europe's most aristocratic families.

In 1985 Ferruccio Ferragamo fell in love with Il Borro. He claims that, in 1985, he fell in love with the place. The Ferragamo family then rented this Tuscan estate for years until he decided to purchase the property. Later, he and his son Salvatore began a crucial restoration of the ancient destination.

The desire to bring life to the place drove the recovery process. They brought traditions and history forward. This created a seamless transition between the past, the present, and the future in one place.
