Analytical text:

Ovi palace is situated on a relief to the left of the Riana brook and presents itself as a very remarkable nucleus. The complex, arranged as a court, includes the elegant palace previously belonging to the Crovegli family and now to the Ovi family, an oratory dedicated to S. Lucia and various rustics. The palace rises imposingly, with a compact volume and square layout developed over three levels. On the northeastern corner a nice tower structure is attached, it rises, compared to the building, with the upper part of the dovecot, which is defined by a linear relief border and a nice wheel shape brick rosette opens on it. The four-layered roof is imposed on a splayed eave cornice while on the side there's a small vaulted bell tower. The surface is made of stone and is slightly scarped. The façade of the palace is wide and bright, with regular lights that are arranged symmetrically. The 18th century oratory has a sloping façade facing south, defined by angular pilaster strips with iconic capitals and ends on at the top with a triangular frontispiece. In the farmhouses there are interesting architectural features that remain, such as sculpted angular ashlars and a sandstone portal. The palace, even if referable in its current form to a probable 18th century reconstruction, derives from an older type of construction, perhaps from the XVI century.
