music The theatre
Between the last world wars, Vigoleno welcomed famous personalities and gained international fame through merit of the Duchess Maria Ruspoli Grammont Hugo, who was born as Princess Ruspoli, a very attractive woman, who restored the Castle and welcomed actors, poets, writers and those from the "bel mondo" of those roaring years.

A stone placed into the wall of the garden-terrace of the castle, amongst leafy laurel and cypress trees, reminds us of her admirable work of restoration.

Amongst the personalities who were welcomed here, we remember a famous painter and master of surrealism - Max Ernst, the versatile genius Jean Cocteau, the most popular queen of the American cinema of that time - Mary Pickford, the journalist and writer Elsa Maxwell, Gabriele D'Annunzio, the pianist Arthur Rubenstein, Princess Winnie De Polignac.
