Casale San Pio V is a building of great historical and artistic interest, which intercepts five centuries of Italian history. Its construction, started in the 16th century on behalf of Cardinal Antonio Ghislieri (future Pope Pius V), was completed in 1567, becoming the summer residence of the newly elected Pope. It is said that right from a window of the Casale the Pope would have had the famous vision of the victory of Lepanto. Over the years the Casale has been the object of numerous donations, becoming over time a place of culture and education: in 1655 it was bought by the Chigi family and in the 1800s Princess Margherita, wife of the heir to the throne Umberto di Savoia, made a Hospice for the blind. Today the restored and renovated farmhouse is the international headquarters of the Link Campus University University of Rome.
