Senator Mazzeo Mazzei purchases Villa Mangiacane and it’s four adjoining estates.
Mazzeo Mazzei dies without heirs, leaving his property to his nephew, Zanobi Mazzei.
Zanobi’s son, Filippo, inherits the estate after his father’s death.
Filippo Mazzei, who became a well-known physician, libertarian and close friend to Thomas Jefferson, was born in this year.
Italy’s most respected historian at the time, Alfredo Melani, publishes a book titled ‘Architettura Italiana Antica e Moderna’ that confirms the villa was the work of Michelangelo.
Raffaello and Eugenio Mazzei inherit the Mangiacane property.
A severe earthquake on 18 May causes severe damage to the villa.
Raffaello and Eugenio Mazzei sign an act protecting the villa as a historical building of great importance.
