Brief history of Stanzia Cocci

very-old-photoStanzia Cocci was built by Count Cocci around 1810. The estate was named after him.

The Count lost his property in a card game.

At this time, the ancestors of the current owners lived in central Istria. Matteo Zugan was an officer in the Austro-Hungarian army. With his brothers, he purchased the estate in 1872.

In 1899., Pietro Zugan built a new addition to the house – commemorated with an inscription in the front of the house.

Stanzia Cocci remains in the ownership of the Zugan family to this day.
