On Saturday 7th December – 10.45 am – 12.30 pm – 3.00 pm – 4.30 pm TELL YOU THE CASTLE: THE PROTAGONISTS
Every century gives us leading personalities who have left a profound trace in the artistic evolution of the Castle. Without Valerano’s work with Clemenzia Provana, lords of Manta, and Tommaso III with Margherita de Roussy, Marchesi di Saluzzo, today, we could not admire the extraordinary cycle of frescoes in the Baronial Hall. If in the mid-sixteenth century the cousins Michele Antonio and Valerio, counts Saluzzo della Manta, had not enlarged the manor, we would not have the Salone delle Grottesche and the Galleria with the apartments of the family. Until the seventeenth century and the passage of the Savoy to the Manta with the Duke Carlo Emanuele I.
Dedications, mottos, monograms and portraits tell us about the gentlemen of the Manta: a new path to give a face to those who have lived this splendid place for centuries.
Thanks to the Les Ducs des Alpes project / I Duchi delle Alpi financed under the cross-border cooperation program between France and Italy ALCOTRA (Axis III Land attractiveness).
