Some historians attribute the design of the entire fortification of the city of Loreto to Francesco di Giorgio Martini. battlements - construction - 16th century - On April 20, 1521 Cristoforo Resse was paid for the "growth" of sixteen battlements. In 1524 Mastro Magno da Imola was paid for the execution of the `parapet to et mattonar that above and below and to take the stairs`. whole property - renovation works - 20th century - From 1915 the works already envisaged by Cirilli have carried out: demolition of the building built near the walls and redesign of the altimetric profile of the area. The platform of the tower, with the surrounding area, was used as a remembrance park in memory of the Laurentian soldiers who died in the war. Three flights of external stairs were added to access the roof of the tower between which the monument dedicated to the fallen was inserted. Perhaps the construction of the small bell tower adjacent to the sentry box dates back to this period. whole property - end of works - 16th century - The first certain accounting documents date back to June 1519. Antonio Maria da Como and Benedetto da Bergamo were paid for the construction of the corbels. This document attests that the works were at a very advanced stage and probably ended in the following month of July.
