A bit of History and Curiosities • Oramala Castle is a Malaspina castle. The Malaspina family derives from the one of Obertenghi and, together with Aleramici Carretto and to other families, dominated the area of the Ligurian Apennines. • The first document about Oramala dates back to 1029: the deacon Gerardo gives the fortress of Oramala to the Marquis Ugo Obertenghi, along with other assets. The building goes to Alberto Azzo I and Obizzo Oberto, who resides there, and in the document of 1056 it passes to his vassal Rustico Oramala. With the term stronghold, Oramala is identified as a fortification on top of the mountain. • In 1167 Barbarossa is helped by Obizzo reaching Pavia through the paths traced by muleteers through Apennines and Frederick I spent a night at Oramala. A legend says that in a moment of despair, Barbarossa would be kneeling on the well inside the yard, and he uttered the words: "It's just an ora (time) mala (bad)", from which we have an hypothesis of the birth of the name of this place. • In 1985 the Panigazzi brothers, who lived in Poggio Ferrato, began the renovation of the castle. The restructuring ended in 2003. About us Spinofiorito is an association of social promotion that manages the Oramala castle since 2008 and organizes events throughout the Oltrepò Pavese: from conferences to theater, from the paths in the former psychiatric hospital in Voghera to workshops for children.

I was there for an interesting Concert of Baroc Music, organized by La società dell'Accademia di Voghera. It is magic to hear Vivaldi, Giuliani, Albinoni in a magic frame like a middel age Castle!
