9 - Castle in Castiglioncello Bandini, Castiglion del Torto. This medieval castle was the fortified home of the Aldobrandeschi family.
The Aldobrandeschi were an Italian noble family from southern Tuscany. The possession extended to what are now southern Tuscany and northern Lazio regions of Italy. The most famous members were Guglielmo Aldobrandeschi, who lived in the 13th century and is cited by Dante Alighieri as the Gran Tosco ("Grand Tuscan"), and Pope Gregory VII.
Later, the castle was owned by the Bandini family, hence the name of the piazza. Sallustio Bandini (19 April 1677 – 8 June 1760) was an Italian archdeacon, economist, and politician. He was an advocate of free trade, and removal of local feudal tariffs and tolls. He wrote an influential piece on this subject, titled ‘Discorso Economico sopra la Maremma di Siena’, published posthumously in 1775.
