    Visiting the many castles that our peninsula prides itself, is always an interesting experience and fascinating. Each one jealously guards inside, a huge historical and cultural heritage. Located in the hills between Langhe and Roero, in a splendid panoramic position, the castle of Magliano Alfieri is a grandiose residence castellana pure Piedmontese Baroque style, previously belonged to the family Alfieri. Here, he lived his childhood the poet Vittorio Alfieri and for many years to come, the mother, she spent summer seasons. The Castle, devoid of furniture and décor details became after its restoration home to two important museums of Arts and traditions. The first Museum, located on the East side and called "Teatro del Paesaggio", chronicles the life and culture of the Langhe and Roero, uncovering documents, knowledge and testimony, putting at the Centre the exhibition scenario farmer, the breeder. Multimedia and interactive museum in my opinion too, totally detached from the subject matter. The poor functionality of interactive terminals, makes it imperfect. The second Museum, located on the opposite side, is dedicated to the culture of plaster and ceiling construction technique which was used in the past to decorate the houses of the neighboring countries. All aspects of the chalk, and then its physical and chemical characteristics, its cooking and checkout mode, its use, its spread and its marketing in the territory, describes in a very clear and detailed. Just outside the Castle you can visit the House of bishops, frescoes and go for a nice romantic walk in the front garden from where you can enjoy a wonderful panorama.

    Turning to the Langhe in August we find not only the Museum but also volunteers with great enthusiasm we tell the history of the place. Don't expect big pieces but ka history of the landscape and a group that has been able to recover memories of a present perfect.

    The castle of Magliano Alfieri you can enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the Langhe, breathing an air of mild even in the days when the heat in and around the area of Alba axle. I recommend to go for a walk in the historic centre of Magliano, especially on summer evenings.

  • For those who want to learn about the birth of the hills of Piedmont and the hard work of the farmers lived in Roero and Langhe, the Castle-Palace of Magliano Alfieri will tell you the story!!! Inside there is a multimedia Museum that will take you from the end of World War II to today. From the castle there is a fantastic view over the hills of the Roero, with stretches of vineyards and peach trees.
