CASA LAJOLO, PIOSSASCO (TO)

Categories , ,

The current architectural layout of the villa dates back to the middle of the 18th century, and was probably the work of the Count of Aleramo Chialamberto. The facade and the decorated ceilings support this date. At the death of Chialamberto, around 1850, his cousins, the Counts of Cossano Lajolo, an ancient family from Asti, inherited the property and still own it today. Particularly noteworthy is the Italian-style garden, recently listed by FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano) as among the historical treasures of Piedmont.
