“There is no history without a place. There is no family without roots. There is no characteristic product without a land. For Mazzetti d’Altavilla, the place, the roots, and the land have a name: Monferrato.” This is the leitmotiv of the Mazzetti d’Altavilla 2019/20 Artistic Calendar which accompanies the beauty of the UNESCO hills. With the conviction that enhancing tourism is the key to improving the offer and increasing flows of people across the region, the year is marked by twelve places of particular interest in Monferrato, places which have maintained their attraction and are able to draw tourists.
After an appealing aerial image of Altavilla Monferrato, the Town of Grappa, appearing in sequence are the Torrione di Moncalvo, the Benedictine cloister of Grazzano Badoglio, the Synagogue of Casale Monferrato, the infernot (underground rooms carved into the stone, typically used to store wine) of the Pietra da Cantone Ecomuseum in Cella Monte, the ancient town of Ozzano Monferrato. We thus continue with the medieval concentric castle of Montemagno, the Bialbero (double tree) of Casorzo, the ancient Via Dell’Entrata in Calliano, the partial view of Moleto at Ottiglio, the panorama at Vignale Monferrato, the viewpoint at Coniolo, and the rows of Ruchè at Castagnole Monferrato. Six places in the Casalese area and as many in the Asti area, a region boasting great variety in the landscape and a significant tourism potential, located around the most historic distillery. Admiring these images, combined with as many traditional Grappas and the result of the photographic skills of Paolo Bernardotti, is like looking forward to a visit to this mythical land.
