WELCOME WITHIN MY WALLS

WELCOME

WITHIN MY WALLS

Here I am, with my thousand-year history.

Proudly bearing the marks of my time and cherishing my authenticity. The same that you will breathe when you set foot here. You will be able to feel it under your feet and see it with your eyes by following the trajectory that the nose draws when it turns upwards.

Over the last millennium, I have experienced different eras, habits and customs, in a succession of life that intertwines and expresses itself on my walls, on my frescoed vaults, in the creaking of my floors. My heart beats stronger than ever, mixed with life, contamination and experimentation.

Ways of being that have always belonged to me, from the time of the Counts Solaro to that of the Savoy royal family and that, within my walls, find their most natural expressive space even today, thanks to your presence.

I am castle. I am home. I am hamlet. I am school. I am community. I am history, culture, art, territory, nature.

This is what I offer you today: a unique journey into the authentic memory of all that has been, up to here. I work daily to build the memory of tomorrow, with sensitivity, respect and dedication.

This is the commitment I renew today, with all of you. Welcome to the new energy of a different time, mine.

AN ENDLESS EXPLOITATION’S PATH

Since 2015, the Govone Residenza Sabauda Association has been dedicated to obtaining resources for the restoration interventions carried out on me. Thanks to the support of the European Social Fund, the Ministry of Culture, and the CRC, CRT, and Compagnia di San Paolo Foundations, much has already been accomplished over the years, and there are still many future projects ahead.

DISCOVER GOVONE

THE PARK, THE GARDENS, THE VILLAGE, AND THE HIKING PATHS

Govone extends beyond my walls. It is an entire community that takes care of the magnificent places it inhabits. I invite you to explore everything that surrounds me: the park and the gardens, the greenhouse, the intimate rose garden, the village, and the outdoor trails immersed in nature, which you can explore on foot or by bike.

The park, inhabited by squirrels, woodpeckers, jays, embraces the castle all around with its hedges of boxwood, beech trees, elms, and cypresses.

The gardens gather and showcase Maria Cristina's passion for botany, particularly for roses, displaying various splendid antique varieties.

The historic center extends the visit beyond the castle walls, revealing the authenticity of a village that, while continuing to live, preserves its memory.

The trails lead you along the edges of the constellation of which the castle is the protagonist, through fields, vineyards, and hazelnut groves, allowing you to discover the land.
