Applying the "Residenze d'Epoca Certification Protocol", the Certification Commission periodically carries out up to 150 different Quality Controls on each of the 8046 classified properties, and rewards the best castles and historical residences for tourism and events with the awarding of the prestigious Golden Crowns and publication in its Golden Register. The selection is extremely rigorous: in the last 12 months only 1% of the candidate structures have managed to win at least one Golden Crown.
The Golden Register is the official collection of historic houses certified by Residenze d'Epoca, updated in real time based on the scores obtained during the Quality Controls carried out by the Certification Commission.
