ROSSENELLA THE TOWER WITH THE GENTLE NAME
The tower rises on the top of a volcanic formation, oriented according to the cardinal coordinates: with the long sides facing north and south and the short sides facing east and west. At the foot of the entrance, there is the cistern for the immediate collection of water, whose rational location allows to limit the thermal shock. The ground floor of the Tower, used as a food warehouse, was without access. The upper floor could be used as an accommodation by the feudal lord or by the captain defending the location, or as a bed for the guard men.
The windows were provided with a hole of very small dimensions bordered by stone ashlars, such as to allow observation in safety. On the south side, where the rock overhangs, two atypical overlapping openings constituted the toilets. Access to the tower was made possible by a retractable ladder which, recovered inside, required adequate housing on the long wall.
