The Consortium for Defence of Castles was founded in December 1968, for the purpose of gathering together the owners, possessors and holders under any title of castles and other fortified works in the region, such as towers, fortified palaces, fortified houses, defensive walls or ruins in order to undertake joint action for their recovery, re-use and enhancement.

La nostra sede

La Torre di Porta Aquileia faceva parte del quinto circuito murato della città, iniziato attorno alla metà del XIV secolo e concluso poco più di un secolo più tardi; con Porta Villalta, è l’unica superstite delle tredici porte che collegavano la città con gli assi viari e commerciali più importanti. Ospitava l’abitazione del Custode, che aveva il compito di controllare il transito di persone e merci e l’obbligo di assistere alla chiusura e all’apertura della porta.

Con il 1852 la torre viene giudicata inservibile e abbandonata. Dopo i primi interventi di restauro del 1948 e 1960, negli anni ’90 si pensa ad un intervento più complesso che restituisca completa funzionalità all’edificio e che ne permetta una nuova fruizione che confluisce nel restauro del 1998.
