In 1242 it was rebuilt by Frederick II and was later frequently renovated: in 1350, during the Perugine domination, a central keep (Cassero) was added, while a few years later other intervention were carried on by Biordo Michelotti.Cardinal Antonio Maria Ciocchi del Monte lived in the fortress from 1515 to 1533.During the Renaissance the Rocca became a patrician residence, but in 1888 was turned into a prison.It is now the seat of a ceramics museum and of an historical exhibition.
