Location

From the Owner

Villa Grabau was purchased in 1868 by the wealthy German banker Rodolfo Schwartze for his wife Carolina Grabau. Her father, Carlo Grabau, was born in Hamburg in 1784 of noble German extraction. He was then transferred in 1832 to Livorno by the Granduke of Tuscany and appointed to be General Consul for the Anseatic Cities of the Northern Sea. He then married Enrichetta Inghirami, from a noble patrician family of Volterra. The Schwartze family had no children, so Villa Grabau was passed down to Carolina's nephew, Marcello Grabau who later married the Countess Francesca Cenami Spada, a noble Patrician of Lucca, and had five children. The Villa then passed to their son Ludovico, and now belongs to his son and daughter, Federico and Francesca.
