Baldissero d'Alba

Included after the year 1000 in the fief of Sommariva Perno, Baldissero is sold half by the Lords of Sommariva to the marquis Federico II of Saluzzo at the beginning of the ‘200.

The total detachment occurs around 1268: two years after William, who had obtained Baldissero in the division between the “domains of Summaripa”, is already called “de Baudesseto”.

In 1487, during the war for the Marquisate of Saluzzo, Baldissero was conquered by Charles I of Savoy, later returned to the Colonna family (surname that the local lords had given themselves – mid ‘400 – boasting false origins from the Roman Columns).

The City is considered the capital of Roero, it gave rise to the international Slow Food movement, an organization that promotes the discovery, albeit slow, of genuine flavors that characterize our territory.

Rich in palaces and churches, it is one of the major centers of the Piedmont Baroque.

Do not miss the Roman finds, dating back to the second century BC, admirable in Pollenzo(near Bra) and the Traversa Palace.

Heart of the Roero, with its historic cellars and the many typical shops, the historic center of Canale clearly preserves (with the orthogonal streets and the arcades on the side of the “main road”) the “villanova” system that the municipality of Asti founded in 1260 to convey the populations of the ancient surrounding settlements (Anterisio, Loreto di Canale, Castelletto d’Astisio, Canale ‘vecchio’ and other minors), after the defeat of the Counts of Biandrate.

Castellinaldo can undoubtedly be defined as the most visited village in the Roero, with its 63% of the territory cultivated with vineyards.

Setting your gaze from the highest points towards the valleys and the underlying ridges allows you to grasp the vision of an agricultural landscape that is a true, splendid work of art with geometry and sinuous lines.
