Odescalchi Castle , Bracciano

Bracciano is dominated by the castle built between 1470 and 1485 by Napoleone Orsini and his son Gentile Virginio. In 1497 Giovanni di Candia, son of Pope Alexander VI Borgia (1492-1503), repeatedly attacked the castle but the Orsini repelled the assailants and so they did again a few years later when Cesare Borgia, another son of the pope, made another attempt to take the castle.

Italian castles offer romantic venues for weddings


New doubts appear to have been cast over David Beckham's Real Madrid future after his trip to Rome for Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes's wedding. Reports had suggested that Beckham had been given permission to attend the showbiz wedding of the year with his pop-singer wife Victoria. But it would seem that Real boss Fabio Capello was not planning to give the 31-year-old former England captain special dispensation and wanted him to remain in Spain to work on his fitness ahead of next Tuesday's crucial Champions League clash with Group E leaders Lyon.
Beckham was ruled out of the Spanish giants' Primera Liga clash with Racing Santander by an inflamed meniscus in his left knee which had kept him out of group training. And when quizzed about the former Manchester United star's whereabouts this weekend, Capello said: "David has to stay in Madrid to work." Beckham, who is in the final year of his contract at the Bernabeu, has failed to secure a regular starting place in the first-team under Capello. He is still to agree a new contract with the nine-times European champions.
