Analytical text:

Description
The tower house of Vaglio, probably of the 15th century, has a wide dovecot defined by brick designs.
In the late 1600's it was embellished with a double open gallery formed by three orders with small circular sectioned mullions and ogival arches.
It is, even using traditional decorative canons, the only example of a double open gallery in the Reggiano apennines.
