It had several owners over the centuries and has been in the possession of the Vochieri family since the 19th century. The last significant changes made to the structure were in 1882 by an architect from Vigevano, Luigi Vandone, who transformed the castle from a fortress to a building fit for residence. It was then that a series of loggia supported by corbels and balconies with windows some of which are faux.
