  • Knowing the most beautiful church in Alba, starting from the elegant Gothic portal color, white and red, and the frescoes, I went Saturday in the time indicated on the right side of the portal, but nothing, lock-out, closed and without any information. Too bad! I tasted the polygonal apse only externally and the magnificent portal.

  • DAS Lied von der Erde, extreme work and Gustav Mahler, a cycle of Supreme songs on Chinese poetry of the period is an absolute pain, absolute sweetness, Tang: total resignation. I was reminded by visiting the splendid exhibition "TULLIO PERICOLI. The HILLS ahead "which is hosted, in conjunction with the most fragrant food fair in the world, in the spaces of the illustrious Temple of the Dominicans at sunrise. Important Church, Gothic architecture, built in the manner of the great momentum lombardo, from beautiful portal surmounted by a lunette frescoed, the large ship with tall columns of black and white squares like the Dominican habit, from the beautiful apse Poli-lobate structure that must be seen on the outside. Church being necessary restoration, especially to recover late Gothic frescoes accommodated in the aisles and in the presbytery. Such severe architecture is today to house the works of an artist known throughout the world, the son of the blessed one Italian region that are the brands, although resident for years in Milan, known to everyone if only for its effective graphics on large newspapers and books published by Adelphi. Dangers celebrates here his relationship of familiarity and love with the Earth of the Langhe, and does so by her, with a significant number of works of large dimensions, built with the most varied techniques and on different media: canvas, cardboard, wood, paper (some of Fabriano ...), oils, pastels, tempera paintings, collages all joined together by a superior instinct for the graphic composition obtained by different techniques. Now air signs, almost imperceptible, now refined undulations of great decorative taste, now deep scratches in pictorial and color support, telling us about these lands, full of sweet and vinous and juice letterari tormented with attention even at what lies and moves under their visible surface: the obscure tectonic motions, interpret a secret of inland waterways, the changing geological composition, the changing light. And this is also musical of these sophisticated compositions: Mahler the song of the Earth, but also the chirping of Woods at the beginning of the rite of spring, but also the Waldweben of the Earth, that tell the continuous Siegfried Wagner becoming. If you think about it, a tad more prosaically but not too much, that this land hides inside the Tuber Magnatum, diamond, aphrodisiac par excellence, the picture is complete as you might want.

  • In the heart of the historic centre of Alba a beautiful gothic church that stands out with its beautiful portal and its polygonal apse. Inside, very impressive, you can still see some frescoes. While not desecrated hosts art exhibitions, concerts and events of various kinds. The restoration works are currently still for lack of funds. You visit from 10 to 12.30 and from 15.30 to 18.30.
