Castle of Guarene

Refounded on a previous fortress that since the Middle Ages dominated the green hills of the Roero, the castle of Guarene was inhabited by the Roero di Guarene family but also by other families in the area. On the western side, the building overlooks the Alps, which it looks upon with the pride of those who are aware of their long history.


Banca d’Alba

The capital of the Langhe (as well as the major center of the entire Langhe-Roero landscape complex) is the ancient city of Alba, which boasts pre-Latin origins and centuries of cultural and economic prosperity. Alba deserves a careful visit not only, and it would already be sufficient, for the quality of its wines, its meats and its truffles (in addition to Nutella, of course) but nevertheless for the variegated urban-architectural aspect that characterizes it, enriched by the vestiges Roman and Gothic churches, medieval defensive towers and pleasant arcades.


Church of San Giovanni

In the small Canale, a town of medieval foundation, there is the eighteenth-century church of San Giovanni Decollato, with a façade in a neoclassical style and large interiors. The building is no longer used for worship and is therefore used as a precious space for cultural and recreational events.


Piazza Garibaldi

The small town of Castagnito d’Alba barely reaches two thousand inhabitants, but it is one of the most determined communities in the entire territory in proposing itself as a reference in the field of environmentalism and good living. The municipal façade located in that Piazza Garibaldi is worth a look, where the audience of our Festival will be able to attend the concert scheduled for June 5th.


Church of San Michele

The order ensured by the neoclassical facade of the building, conceived according to its current forms only in the nineteenth century, fits perfectly with the program that the audience of our Festival will have the opportunity to listen in the performance of the Harmonious Ensemble. The church, of medium size, was decorated inside at the beginning of the twentieth century; today no worship is officiated there but it is used to host concerts and cultural events of various kinds.


Church of San Vittorio Martire

The origin of this church is very ancient, but its current medieval forms (characterized by the neo-gothic so much in vogue in the Romanticism century), very visible both inside (totally decorated) and outside, are due to the reconstruction of the ‘building which took place in the nineteenth century. The intervention was part of the urban transformation of the entire Pollentino village at the time of King Carlo Alberto.


Coazzolo Castle

The Coazzolo Castle, built in the Middle Ages, but which owes its current appearance to the extensive renovations that took place in the Baroque period, belongs to the large group of elegant Piedmontese hillside buildings. Its perfect location among the green hills of the area, the atmosphere steeped in history, make it a place of profound inspiration, suitable for a food and wine stay in the company of good music.



Designed in the second half of the nineteenth century by the engineer Pietro Carrera according to canons for once Renaissance and not, as was customary at the time, medieval-Gothic, the facade has been the subject of restoration in recent times. The building is located in the area where the Governor’s Palace was previously located.


Villa della Regina

Erected between 1615 and 1619 by Ascanio Vitozzi and then by the Castellamonte, it was commissioned by Maurizio di Savoia, who elected it as the residence of his young wife Ludovica, so much so that it was originally called “Villa Ludovica “. Erected on the hill of Turin, the building is located right where a vineyard once stood, underlining the link between architecture, gardens, woods and agricultural land.


Castel of Govone

Part of the circuit of the Savoy residences and UNESCO heritage, the Royal Castle of Govone was enlarged and modernized in the Baroque period, with the transformation of the previous medieval fortress into a building characterized by an elegance that fit well into the surrounding territories and that the Savoy, in particular Carlo Felice, chose them as their favorite summer destination.


Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation

The Guarene headquarters of the Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation, which for twenty-seven years has been actively involved in promoting contemporary art, is located in a valuable eighteenth-century building, protected by the Superintendency of Cultural Heritage and adapted during the restoration phase (while respecting the existing) to the new use: not only contemporary art exhibitions but also conferences, educational workshops and film screenings.
