the Marquis Fabio Scotti of Castelbosco, Count of Miceno, acquired the Rocca di San Giorgio Piacentino in 1637 when the Anguissola family died out.

An excellent example of a villa-fortress, attributed to the architect Vignola, it was built at the end of the 16th century by Alessandro Anguissola of the San Giorgio branch.

Fabio Scotti of Castelbosco, Count of San Giorgio, after extensive works made it a summer residence.

In 1762 the Count Paolo Scotti enclosed the Rocca with a wall surrounding it with a wonderful park populated by fallow deer and deer. In 1820, on the death of Count Paolo Scotti, his daughter Clelia brought the fortress as a dowry to Count Ferdinando Negri della Torre. His daughter Maria Negri della Torre, in turn, brought it as a dowry to Count Guido Gazzola di Settima.

The Rocca di San Giorgio is still inhabited today by the Gazzola family: Paola with her children Leonardo and Matteo

Fabio married Alessandra Vittoria Scotti Douglas and was father to Annibal Dieudonné (Annibale Deodato) Scotti, who became Grand Majordoma of the Queen of Spain.  Alessandro was daughter of Francesco Maria Scotti Douglas, Conte di Vigoleno.

Notes:
1.   Francesco Maria Scotti Douglas, Conte di Vigoleno was also father of Angela Scotti Douglas who married Giovanni de' Rossi (1431-1502), an Italian condottiero and the fifth count of San Secondo.
